After facing hardships as a young man that could have permanently derailed his life, John has become a respected and successful business owner who views his companies as a platform to reach people for Christ and support ministries around the world. He is the Founder and CEO of John Houston Custom Homes, a homebuilding company he began in 2004. Since that time, he has started five additional companies which make up the JH Family of Companies including a mortgage company, a land-development company, a title company, an insurance company, and an environmental erosion company.
During his journey of building these businesses, John has stayed true to his core belief of putting God first, family second and work third. This has created a company culture and brand that is excelling at the highest level. When asked how he leads his companies, John says “I make the best business decisions possible with the most talented workforce…unless God specifically leads us in a certain direction.”
He is a graduate of Southwestern Assemblies of God University with a bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration and and his favorite, an associate’s degree in Bible. He serves on several local non-profit boards, including his alma mater, and the Oaks Church.
John has been married to the love of his life, Tracy, for more than thirty years, and they are the parents of two young adult children, Austin and Ashtyn. They live outside of Dallas and enjoy eating a great steak, spending time outdoors, and traveling on adventures together as a family.
