Dr. Gary Johnson

Dr. Gary Johnson has served in the preaching ministry for over thirty years; with the majority as senior minister of Indian Creek Christian Church (Indianapolis, Indiana). He holds a Master of Arts degree in Church history from Lincoln Christian Seminary, Master of Ministry and Divinity degrees from Cincinnati Bible Seminary in practical ministries, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Grace Theological Seminary (Indiana). Gary also teaches as an adjunct professor of the faculties of Cincinnati Christian University and TCM Institute, a seminary serving Eastern Europe. Gary travels overseas for the purpose of teaching pastors and church leaders in cross-cultural settings. Gary and Leah have been married over 33 years, and have married sons; Jared and Aaron, who are both serving in the ministry. His pursuits outside of church life include running, mountain climbing, racquetball, cycling, and back-packing. Still, one of the greatest joys in life for Gary is being called “grandpa” by five little children.
