AGTS Announces First J. Philip Hogan
Professor of World Missions
AGTS is pleased to announce the
appointment of Rev. Johnson, AG missionary to Thailand,
as the first J. Philip Hogan professor of world missions. His tenure
begins summer 2006.
The annually appointed Hogan professorship
will bring distinguished missions theologians and practitioners
from around the world to AGTS classrooms for one semester. Each
professor will have the opportunity to publish a monograph as part
of a new AGTS book series on missiology.
Since beginning his missionary
career in Thailand in 1986, Johnson has distinguished himself as
one of the brightest thinkers in Pentecostal missions.
He is a
Ph.D. candidate at the Oxford Centre for Missions Studies, University
of Wales, researching social influence processes in Bangkok’s
urban slums. Along with his M.A. in Biblical Literature from AGTS
(1991), he earned an M.A. in Social Science with an emphasis in
leadership at Azusa Pacific University (2002). He earned a B.A.
from Northwest University in Kirkland, Wash.
Johnson serves as
the program director for the Institute of Buddhist Studies and
is a member of the Committee on 2/3 World Mission focusing on the
non-western AG mission movement and its role in bringing the gospel
to least-reached people groups.
“Rev. Johnson’s humble and
winsome personality, brilliant mind and passionate commitment to
presenting the gospel to those who have not yet heard is extraordinary,” said
AGTS President Byron D. Klaus.
