Our speaker is Jesse Johnson who is currently the teaching pastor at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield, VA. He 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, co-editor of 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

He and his wife Deidre have three daughters, and live in Alexandria.

He blogs at The Cripplegate, and is on twitter @jarbitro
