Prior to beginning his work in Southeast Asia, Dr. Johnson served as a staff pastor for four years. Since 1986 he has worked in planting churches and training leaders. More recently, he has developed work in poor urban communities in Southeast Asia among both Buddhists and Muslims.

On a broader level, he has worked with ministries focused on planting churches among the least reached groups, training believers to work with people influenced by Buddhist worldviews and assisting emerging missions movements. In 2010 AGWM assigned him to the AGTS faculty in addition to his international responsibilities.
