Speakers

Dr. John Stumbo, Keynote Speaker

John Stumbo-smilingDr. John Stumbo is president of the U.S. Alliance and lives with his bride of 35 years in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He and Joanna have three grown children and three young grandsons. A pastor and ultra-marathon runner, life suddenly changed for John in 2008 when a mysterious illness left him bedridden for 77 days and unable to swallow for over a year. John’s ability to swallow was miraculously healed during this time. John has authored three books and has a few more in the works that he looks forward to finishing.

He loves being with the Alliance family—from teams on the field, to church leaders and congregations here in the States, to the great staff at the National Office. John finds renewal spending Sabbath days in God’s creation and keeps working toward the day when he can run long distances again.
