J.P. De Gance is the founder and president of Communio and the co-author of the book, Endgame: The Church’s Strategic Move to Save Faith and Family in America.
JP is also the author of the Nationwide Study on Faith and Relationships. Communio is a ministry originally incubated as the Culture of Freedom Initiative at The Philanthropy Roundtable where he served as the organization’s executive vice president. The Initiative raised and spent $20 million over three years in three different states seeking to identify the most effective strategies to boost marital health, family stability, and church engagement. From 2016 to 2018, the experimental initiative worked with an ecumenical network of churches and drove down the divorce rate by 24 percent in Jacksonville, FL. Today, Communio serves churches across the United States helping them evangelize by applying the learnings from their successful intervention in Jacksonville.
Prior to his role with The Philanthropy Roundtable, JP served in various development and policy roles with the Conservative Leadership PAC, The Leadership Institute, Koch Industries, and Americans for Prosperity.
JP graduated with a BS in Journalism from the University of Florida.
A husband and father, JP lives in Virginia with his wife and eight children.
