ROSEMONT, IL – On August 11, 2017, John Pitzaferro, the founder and CEO of TransNational Payments, spoke at The Global Leadership Summit ( from the sold-out Willow Creek campus to more than 600 satellite locations nationwide and an audience of more than 200,000 viewers. For more than 20 years, the live simulcast featuring world-class speakers who deliver a unique blend of vision, inspiration and practical skills, has proven to produce compelling outcomes for attendees including: teamwork, effectiveness, significance and better leaders.

In 2008, Pitzaferro listened to Bill Hybels tell the story of a man whose business was drilling wells. When drillings ceased in the Midwest area of the U.S., this man took his business to Africa and drilled wells for free. This story profoundly impacted John and he realized that his well was payment processing. In 2009, John officially launched “My Well Ministry.”

“My Well Ministry” provides credit and debit card processing services, at cost, to churches and non-profit organizations, allowing these churches and non-profit organizations to steward their donations better, doing more ministry and having greater kingdom impact. “There is nobody else out there, that I know of, that is willing to give away payment processing at cost,” said Pitzaferro.

Today this ministry is serving over 600 churches and 501c3’s across the country. The savings are now over $13,500,000, freeing up much needed capital that has been used for ministry and kingdom purposes – homeless/orphans being feed, addicts being helped to rehab and single moms receiving homes. These savings have even helped GLS to be held in more international locations.

Pitzaferro will be interviewed at the third annual Rock Conference (, on August 28-29, where “My Well Ministry” will be a sponsor.

Organizations interested in how “My Well Ministry” can benefit them should visit for more information. If you’re not a church or non-profit organization but want to process with a company that is ethical and gives back to the community, contact TransNational Payments.
