John W. Bosman



Dr. John W. Bosman is the founder and president of both SpiritWind International and CMNi. He is the author of the Care Revolution book which is used as the textbook for developing care ministry in local churches.


Over the past fifteen years, John has launched powerful leadership networks in South Africa. He annually conducts major leadership conferences in that country where thousands of pastors and church leaders receive training and encouragement.


Born in Zimbabwe and raised in the Republic of South Africa, John entered into full-time ministry in 1970 and successfully pastored several churches in South Africa. John and his family immigrated to the United States in January 1986.


Immediately before entering into his present international ministry, John served for fifteen years as Senior Pastor of the fast-growing Glad Tidings Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Under his leadership the church grew from fewer than five hundred to a thriving congregation which now occupies a 3,500-seat, state-of-the-art worship center.


He served in both regional and national leadership roles within his denomination as well as serving as a member of the Board of Regents for a stateside university and a Bible College in Russia. He is also the founder of both the JWB Institute for Leadership and Laity Development and Hamilton Christian Academy.


John is a gifted speaker and often invited to minister at  major church events and leadership conferences. He is also the author of various teaching manuals that assist pastors to help their people grow spiritually and equip them for ministry.  Personally, John is married to Anne (also an ordained minister), has two sons, John & Jayce, a beautiful daughter in law and five grandsons.


Dr. Bosman wrote the first CMNi materials in 1990 in response to his association with Dr. Mel Steinbron. Since then,  CMNi has been presented to many congregations as a tool for ‘closing the back door’ in churches around the world.
