Dr. Keith Johnson
Director of Theological Integration
Dr. Johnson teaches courses in systematic theology with the goal of helping students connect the best insights of the Christian tradition to their daily life and work. This goal is reflected in his book Theology as Discipleship (IVP Academic, 2015), in which he demonstrates how the study of theology can be an act of faithfulness to Christ and service to the church.
