John Cunnings was born in New Hampshire to a military (Marines) family, living up and down the east coast his entire life. He attended Covenant College where he studied business with a concentration in accounting. While working as an accountant and volunteering with his church youth group, he realized he had a passion for working with kids and families.
Jordan was born in Georgia and attended Truett McConnell College, and then The University of Georgia where she graduated with a degree in Child and Family Development. She developed a passion for working with kids/families while working at Camp WinShape in the summers during college.
Both John and Jordan came to Eagle Ranch in 2004—John to work as a Program Assistant in the Peace Home and Jordan to work as an intern. It was there that they met and were later married in 2006.
John went on to work as an English paraprofessional and PE coach at Eagle Ranch School. Upon graduating college, Jordan went to work for the Eagle Ranch communications team. In 2008, the two of them together began Houseparenting—they served in the Love Home until 2012 and then in the Blessing Home until accepting the position of Homelife Manager in 2017. As Homelife Managers, the Cunnings are responsible for recruiting, equipping, serving and training Homelife staff.
The Cunnings have two daughters, Eden and Cana, and a golden retriever named Murphy who love being a part of the Eagle Ranch community.
