John B. Hayes
JOHN B. HAYES has had a lifelong interest in the needs of the poor. He and his wife, Deanna, are general directors of InnerCHANGE, a mission order which works among the poor in five countries, sharing the good news in words and works through personal relationships. In the summer of 1984, he relocated his family to the poorest, most overcrowded street in Orange County at the time. He was determined to launch a holistic ministry that establishes its personnel in the inner city to minister inside-out. The Hayeses and their two daughters, Savannah and Alexandra, later moved to the inner city of San Francisco and will soon relocate to one of the poorest neighborhoods in London, England. John graduated from Princeton and received his master's in International Relations from Yale.
