Calvary is pleased to announce that Josh Johnson has accepted the position of Head Volleyball Coach for the 2020-21 season. Coach Johnson is a 1997 Kearney High School (Kearney, MO) alumni. He joined the Calvary family as our Dean of Men and Assistant Basketball Coach in August of 2019. His primary role as Dean of Men at Calvary will continue as he takes on this new responsibility. His coaching resume includes time coaching for the AISJ Lions of Jerusalem, Israel from 2016-2019. Before AISJ, he coached the Molina High School Jaguars (Dallas, TX) from 2011-2016.
In high school he was a multi-sport athlete. Josh’s youth pastors at Kearney Bible Church were all Calvary students and he has many fond memories of Calvary from his youth. Josh attended Bryan College (Dayton, TN) on a Tennis scholarship.
Coach Johnson has a Bachelor′s Degree in Christian Education from Bryan College (Dayton, TN) and is currently pursuing his ThM from Tyndale Theological Seminary (Bedford, TX). He is excited to continue building the successful volleyball tradition at Calvary University.
His priority with each team is for them to show love to each other. This is his first opportunity to coach a team made up of such a high number of believers in Christ, so he is excited to see how that priority will grow with the truth that his players know Christ’s love for us. His second goal would be for his team to find joy on the court given the goodness of God and the gifts He’s given us.
Josh’s life verse is Hosea 6:3 – “So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.”
