Darrell Johnson - "God Inspired Creativity"
Darrell Johnson, Pastor at First Baptist Church in Vancouver. He was part of the Regent College faculty from 2000 – 2009 and continues to teach occasional courses. Previously he served nearly 30 years in pastoral ministry. In addition to serving a number of Presbyterian churches in California, he ministered in Manila, Philippines, during the tumultuous time known as the “People Power Revolution” where he saw firsthand how preaching can shape history. He has also taught at Fuller Theological Seminary in the Doctor of Ministry program, and just before coming to Regent was the seminary’s chapel director. Darrell believes that one of the greatest needs in our time is winsome and robust preaching that connects with both head and heart, and thus focuses his teaching at Regent on expository preaching. In addition, he teaches in the areas of biblical spirituality, worship and prayer. He has authored six books, including Discipleship on the Edge: An Expository Journey through the Book of Revelation and The Glory of Preaching: Participating in the Divine Transformation of the World (forthcoming). Darrell and his wife, Sharon, have four adopted children from four different countries of the world, and two grandchildren.
