Johnson University’s mission is to educate students for Christian ministries and other strategic vocations framed by the Great Commission in order to extend the kingdom of God among all nations. Johnson alumni live out this mission and amplify the
impact of Johnson University around the world. Throughout the years, alumni have served in a variety of fields: ministry, missions, healthcare, nonprofits, education, politics, social services, communications, and more.
Here are just a few notable alumni:
Alumni & The Stone-Campbell Movement Because of Johnson University’s unique historical context, the university has maintained relationships within all three streams of the Stone-Campbell Movement. Outside of traditional congregational ministry roles, Johnson alumni have helped shape
and lead the entire Stone-Campbell Movement. Alumni have served as President of the North American Christian Convention and as Moderators and Regional Ministers of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Johnson University alumni have also
led numerous institutions such as the Pension Fund of the Christian Church, Pioneer Bible Translators, and the Disciples of Christ Historical Society. Alumni have served on faculty at Milligan College, Lincoln Christian University, Kentucky Christian
University, Emmanuel Christian Seminary, Butler University, Brite Divinity School, and more. Most significantly, Johnson alumni continue to play a vital role in the life of Johnson University. Many alumni return to the University as dedicated
members of the faculty, staff, and administration. The Alumni Association and the Council of 70 have supported and sustained the University as both prayer partners and financial partners. Alumni also represent the University as some of our best
recruiters, promoting the University’s mission to partner congregations and sharing its programs with future generations of students.
