Jesse Johnson was born and raised in New Mexico. During his senior year of high school, a soccer teammate of his explained the gospel to him. It was the first time he had ever heard the good news of Jesus Christ, and his teammate brought him to a small church for Easter. It was there that Jesse gave his life to the Lord. Jesse eventually went to the Master’s Seminary as a student, and then later as a professor. Jesse spent time as Outreach Pastor at Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, and as a chaplain for the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department.
Jesse is a graduate of the University of New Mexico (Sociology/Spanish), as well as The Master’s Seminary (M. Div.; Th. M. Systematic Theology). He has edited a number of publications including Fundamentals of the Faith, Evangelism in the John MacArthur Pastoral Library Series, and was a contributor to Men of the Word and Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong and Right Thinking in a Church Gone Astray.
