First Three People

John Eldredge

John Eldredge
Writer | Executive Producer | Rider
John Eldredge is an author, a counselor, and a teacher. His books, including the men’s classic Wild at Heart, have sold more than 4 million copies. John is the president of Ransomed Heart in Colorado Springs, CO. It has become a grassroots phenomenon with millions of followers. John and his wife Stasi live in Colorado Springs.
 
While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. John loves the outdoors passionately, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression “far out” way too much.
