John Rusnak

Executive Director

John Rusnak is the former President of Pilgrimage Development. He is a 1986 Graduate of Bucknell University and a former Wall Street trader. In 2001, Rusnak was convicted for his part in a financial scandal at Allied Irish Banks. This began a journey from humiliation to humility that included 5 ½ years of incarceration. Rusnak found an incredible movement of Christ behind the prison walls that confined him and his life was changed eternally. Since his return to society, Rusnak has become an advocate for second chances for men coming home from incarceration and for those in drug and alcohol rehabilitation. John sits on the Board of the Philemon Ministry. He is a fervent witness for his faith and God’s redemptive power to change.
