John Arthur Nunes joined Lutheran World Relief (LWR), a $35 million global organization, as president and CEO in 2007. With a passion for service and deep commitment to LWR's core values, Nunes leads staff in 17 countries in working to end poverty, injustice and human suffering worldwide. Prior to joining LWR, Nunes served on the faculty of Concordia University Chicago as a professor of theology, and as pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church in Chicago. He has also served as a management consultant, and as an urban parish pastor and community organizer in Dallas and Detroit. As a public speaker, he has been a frequent keynote presenter.

"I believe deeply that God created everyone to live in justice, dignity and peace," Nunes says. "When people's most basic needs, like food, water and shelter, remain unmet, they are unable to live out their true calling. By working alongside families and communities struggling to lift themselves out of poverty, LWR helps people around the world live into their full promise," he added.

He holds a B.A. from Concordia College, Ann Arbor, Mich.; a M.Div. from Concordia Seminary in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada; and a master of theology degree from the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. He also received an honorary doctorate from Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Mich. He is currently a doctoral candidate at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.

Nunes has written Voices from the City: Issues and Images of Urban Preaching-paperback and, with his wife, Monique, the children's book Little Things Make Big Differences: A Story about Malaria. He has also written for the Concordia Journal, Hartford Seminary's Conversations in Religion & Theology and
