Sam Johnson is a tremendous communicator and a man of enormous faith and passion, which is blended with his wit and humor. He speaks with conviction, telling it like it is. You will be challenged by his message!


Sam Johnson has accepted the challenge to assist the missionaries and nationals around the world to establish Bible schools and training centers. From his experience as a missionary in Europe for 20 years, during which he served as the European Missions Director for 7 years, he knows the value of training nationals to reach their own people. To date, he has built or assisted in building Bible schools on five continents. 


That is Priority One to him: preparing a place to train men and women who will fulfill the Great Commission. 


Sam and his wife Joyce live in Alcoa, Tennessee. They have three grown sons and seven grandchildren.
