A Sample Introduction for Joel Johnson
Now I would like to introduce to you an incredible man who has traveled all the way from Nashville, Tennessee to be with us today. Some of you may have heard him speak before. He has co-hosted Acquire the Fire conferences for the past ten years, which approximately 150,000 young people attend every year. He has ministered in over 20 nations around the world and in hundreds of churches across North America. Additionally, he has traveled, speaking with bands such as Mercy Me, Newsboys, Third Day, Jeremy Camp and many more.
As a teen, he overcame the challenges brought about by poverty, a broken home and abuse. His stories have helped thousands to find freedom from the wounds of a broken past.
His educational training includes 2 years at Abundant Life School of Ministry, a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Texas and a Juris Doctorate from Texas Wesleyan School of Law. He is the author of several books, most notably, the Best Seller, The Divine Matchmaker. When he isn’t busy with studying, writing or speaking, you might find him on an adventure somewhere such as living with a native tribe in the jungle of Panama, partaking in a traditional Maori feast in New Zealand, playing music in the war torn city of Beirut, trekking to the top of Pike’s Peak or overseeing the remodeling of an orphanage playground in Thailand. He and his wife Casey and their son Lincoln live near Nashville, Tennessee and are happy to be expecting their second child.
