J. Lucarelli, Director of Finance & Media

    John (J. for short) has been on staff with Harvesters since 2011 and has served as a board member since 1999. His role is multi-faceted and includes accounting, finance, accountability, strategic planning, and (probably his favorite) being in the field leading teams and working with our overseas partners. He spends 4-5 months of the year overseas, mostly in Kenya.

    His background includes an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Economics from King College (now King University) and graduate degrees in business and intercultural studies.

    He spent five months living in a remote village in western Kenya in 1998, which was an experience that would shape the trajectory of his life. The next 15 years was spent in private industry and serving as a member of Harvester’s Board of Directors. During this time, he was able to participate and lead short-term teams to Kenya, Congo, Sudan, India, and Myanmar.

    His experience as CFO of a real-estate development firm, along with his education and personal experiences with mission work have uniquely suited him for his position at Harvester’s.

    J lives in Charlotte, NC with his family nearby and nieces and nephews to spoil.
