John’s passion is to serve the community of homeless and needy in Ventura County by addressing their specific needs—be it refuge, recovery or restoration. He enjoys
interacting not only with those the Mission serves, but also with the generous donors and volunteers that make his work at the Mission possible. John’s goal is that the Mission would not only meet a person’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs; but that they would be given the tools, training, resources and support to become a contributing member of the Ventura County community.
John Saltee is an Ordained Minister, who attended Prairie Bible Institute, Los Angeles Baptist College and has a master’s degree from Westminster
Theological Seminary. Before coming to the Mission, John served the City of Los Angeles nearly 20 years in the Fire Department, most recently as a Captain.
