Dr. Jeffrey Johnson is a fourth-generation leader in the Church of the Nazarene and believes in its values and mission. He is convinced that through the local church, the Church of the Nazarene can be relevant and make a Christ-like impact on the communities of South Texas and beyond.
Jeffrey and Julie came to South Texas in 2001 to pastor Houston First Church of the Nazarene after previously serving in churches in Tennessee, Iowa, and Oklahoma.
Dr. Johnson graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts in religion and from Nazarene Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in 1988. He completed his Doctor of Ministry at Asbury Theological Seminary in 2003.
He desires to encourage pastors to fulfill their increasingly challenging but rewarding calling, and to see each local congregation embrace their calling to make disciples.
Jeffrey and Julie Johnson reside in Cypress, Texas and enjoy keeping in touch with their daughters, Jenae and Jana and their families.
