Established in 1981, our story is personal and it started with a passion.


In 1981, after working as a minister to senior adults, John combined his passion for travel with a love of watching others discover new destinations.  Since then, GOOD NEWS TRAVELS has had the privilege of sharing travel journeys with hundreds of thousands of adults and students. 

After almost 37 years, the most enjoyable part of my job hasn’t changed. I still love taking a travel idea and bring it to life. From idea to a destination, I want our travelers to have an experience they can be proud of to share with others.
