Born the son of a preacher man, JC Elder was born and raised all over the state of Georgia. After graduating from Georgia Tech with both a B.S. in Architecture and a Masters of Architecture, he moved with his wife, Kat, to Denver, CO and is an registered architect. JC has also served with various churches and youth events as a part-time worship leader, most recently Foothills Community Church in Arvada, CO. JC and Kat have been married for nearly 7 years and have 2 young children.
JC has studied architecture in Paris, France for a year, provided architectural services to non-profits in Haiti and Nicaragua and served on several mission trips. Through that, he feels that God has revealed His Heart for the Nations to JC through empowering and inspiring others, whether that be through architecture or other endeavors.
He is excited to be a part of IMD International and is a firm believer in both the organization's mission and the way that mission is executed. He is excited to be a small part of empowering leaders across the globe to achieve their individual God-given missions.
