After launching his career in the Texas oilfields, John Cortines decided to advance the biblical message of generosity full-time, joining the leadership team of Generous Giving. Turning down a lucrative expatriate job to serve this mission has been the defining moment in his own generosity journey – a journey in which God has proven tremendously faithful. Previously, he worked for oil companies in several locations across Texas and Louisiana, and as a petroleum engineer for Chevron, where he conducted complex decision and financial analyses of deepwater oil and gas projects. He holds engineering degrees from Texas A&M University (BS, 2010) and KAU of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia (MS, 2011), and an MBA from Harvard Business School (2015).
