John Johnson, Campus Minister – John began in campus ministry as a student at Western Illinois University where he led worship, served as a small group leader, and realized the incredible opportunity that campus ministry presents. Because of this, he now works at CCF in Iowa. Prior to coming to Iowa City, he completed a Master in Divinity from Lincoln Christian Seminary with an emphasis in Worship Studies. John has a passion for board games, Chicago sports teams, movies, and leading others into a deeper relationship with Christ. He is the guy that tends to speak during the Gathering and will warm you with his sense of humor, charm, and humility. On top of all of these attributes, John's life is made busier and more enjoyable because of his wife Mandy, and two kids, Brennan and Zoë.
