Everyone has a vision of what a better world looks like. The real question is how will you prepare yourself to make that better world—and your life within it—a reality?
For more than 115 years, Johnson University has helped bright, service-minded students answer that very question. Our challenging curriculum and Christ-centered environment provide a powerful combination that fosters strong bonds, bold purpose, and endless possibilities.
Johnson’s outstanding academic reputation is driven by:
- Faculty who bring a passion for teaching
- Deeply connected Christian community
- Technologically advanced facilities
Johnson educates students for Christian ministries and other strategic vocations framed by the Great Commission in order to extend the kingdom of God among all nations. All students major in Bible and complement their studies with a second major or a minor in one of several areas of ministry. Students graduate with the knowledge, skills, and perspective enabling them to be effective, compassionate leaders.
At Johnson we think of ourselves as more than a community. We are a family. Our beautiful campus, just outside Knoxville, Tennessee, provides our students, faculty, and staff with a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and outdoor fun.
Taking the Word into the world and offering service to those in need is a major part of Johnson’s mission. Through inner-city ministries, ministries to children and youth, and missions in countries around the world, students at Johnson deliver a powerful message of grace and hope impacting countless lives.
Johnson has an unparalleled commitment to academic excellence and takes pride in offering that experience to students regardless of their financial barriers. No private school in Tennessee can match Johnson when it comes to value. In fact, in an average year more than 90 percent of students receive some form of financial assistance.
