Calvary’s New Dean of Men

We are excited to announce that Joshua Johnson is joining the Student Development team as our new Dean of Men.  Josh grew up in Kearney, MO and received his BA in Christian Education from Bryan College.  He has worked as a youth pastor, teacher, soccer coach, and is currently serving as Dean of Students at an International school in Jerusalem, Israel.  He is currently working on his ThM from Tyndale.  He is married to Kellie and they have three children.

He has a tremendous passion and gifting for discipleship, and we are looking forward to what God has for him and his family as he ministers to our students at CU!
