John Kingston

John is the Vice Chairman of AMG, where he’s responsible for AMG legal, regulatory, compliance, and corporate governance function as well as oversight of their risk management and controls.  He is the founder and Chairman of the Board of the Sword and Spoon Foundation and SixSeeds.  He is a co-producer of the critically acclaimed film Mitt, which premiered in Sundance’s premiere documentary slot, is represented by the talent agency of William Morris Endeavor, and was sold to Netflix.  He and his wife launched SixSeeds as a small mom and pop newsletter, which evolved into a channel on the world’s largest religious website, Patheos.com – over which John has principal ownership. While at Harvard Law School, he helped create the Veritas Forums, events that engage students and faculty in discussions about life’s hardest questions and the modern relevance of Jesus Christ. Also, during his law school years, he created the Society for Law, Life, and Religion (along with classmate David French) which is dedicated to defending religious values and the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. The organization promotes pro-life and religious values in the Harvard community as well as society at large, supports the enrichment of public policy according to faith-based moral convictions, and defend religion’s place in the public square.

He is currently cultivating an artist colony and retreat center on six hundred pristine Vermont acres near the best ski slopes in the northeast. Thousands of students from Harvard Yale, MIT, Princeton have come to his retreat center for spiritual reflection over the years.  In the near future, the farm will be used as a calm respite from the culture where artists can create and revel in their religious faith and the imagination of the artist.

Also deeply involved in public policy, John works with political leaders ranging from Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, Arthur Brooks, Rob Portman.  He also serves on the boards of the Pioneer Institute, AEI National Council, National Republican Senatorial Committee Majority Makers, The Pioneer Institute Board, The Republican Governor’s Association National Council, The Veritas Forum, and Guard Support of Massachusetts.  He received a B.S. Econ and a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
