In addition to coordinating the Foursquare Emerging Leader Network (ELN), Tim also serves as the North Pacific District NextGen rep.

Mentoring in Small Group Settings

Speakers: Gregg & Jessica Johnson • Gregg & Jessica Johnson

As the former National Youth Director of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, Gregg Johnson directed a network of youth leaders, pastors and workers throughout North America. A gifted speaker, writer, musician and motivator; Gregg is now at the center point of a bold vision for an emerging generation of young people around the world within the Body of Christ. Throughout his years as National Director, Foursquare Youth experienced explosive growth, as culminated at “Summit 94”, a National Foursquare Youth Convention in which over 10,000 young people attended the largest three-day gathering of youth in the history of the denomination. In January 1995, Gregg resigned as the National Youth Director in order to launch a ministry to the movement makers of the world. Gregg continues to travel internationally ministering in conferences, camps, seminars and churches all over the United States, Canada, Eastern and Western Europe, Asia and Australia. In 2000, Gregg married Jessica and together they have launched J12, a dynamic ministry to the “tweeners” of society (those between the ages of 8 to 12). With a passion to reach a generation before they need to be rescued, they now have 2 children who will be tweens someday!
