Our staff is our greatest resource and we strive for excellence as we seek to create relational environments of mutual discovery and transformation.

Our full-time staff are:

Lisa Carrick

Lisa has been on staff with NOVO since 2017. She took on the role of President with Novo Canada in 2020 as well as focusing on leadership and organizational development coaching with teams located throughout the world.

Sam Kamminga

Sam serves with InnerCHANGE London, working to cultivate disciples of Jesus and develop local leaders who are marked by merciful action, transformative contemplation, and prophetic justice.

John Hall

John Hall is excited and honoured to be designated the next president of Novo Canada. He will begin serving in that capacity in March 2023. John comes to Novo after serving eight years as the Executive Director at Mission Central (formerly Missions Fest Vancouver). In 1997 he, his wife, and brother-in-law started Eco Outdoor Sports in Metro Vancouver. In 2003 John and Wei stepped out of the business to prepare for full-time ministry. During that time the Lord impressed on John and his family the importance of hearing and obeying Jesus every day, something that he tries to integrate into everything he does. In 2010 God changed the family’s direction and led him to finish his degree at Regent College in preparation for life as a full-time missionary. Now, with Novo, that journey continues with Canada as the focus for his missionary energy.

John and his wife Wei live in Richmond, BC. They have two wonderful adult girls. John completed his MA at Regent College in 2010.
