Darrell Johnson has been preaching the Gospel since 1970 and is well-known as a lover of Jesus and His Good News.

Prior to this, he served as Senior Minister at First Baptist Church in downtown Vancouver, and as Senior Pastor at a number of Presbyterian churches in California and at Union Church of Manila during the so-called “People Power Revolution.”
A pastorally-minded teacher and mentor, Darrell served as Adjunct Professor of Preaching at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasedena, California and more recently, as faculty at Regent College where he taught preaching, worship, pastoral theology and Biblical Spirituality.
Darrell has authored a number of books, including Experiencing the Trinity (now in French and Korean), Fifty-Seven Words That Change the World (on the Lord’s Prayer), Discipleship On the Edge (on the book of Revelation), It is Finished (on the meaning of the death of Jesus), The Glory of Preaching: Participating in God’s Transformation of the World,Who is Jesus? and The Beatitudes.
