Kevin Johnson has a passion for ministering to youth, currently serving as Vice President for Training and Resources at Family Hope Services, a ministry to at-risk youth and their families headquartered in Plymouth, Minnesota. He also has the gift of writing and with total sales of well over 175,000 copies Kevin is undoubtedly the premier author for early teens today.
His training includes an M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary and a B.A. in English and Print Journalism from the University of Wisconsin--River Falls. In his studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, he found out exactly what kids should know about themselves and about Jesus. This combination gives Kevin a powerful mix of knowledge and passion, mind and heart.
In his newest book, Was That a Balloon or Did Your Head Just Pop?, he presents forty-five short readings that help early teens learn how to escape the prison of peer fear so that they can grab hold of God and good friends.
"They get a life-grounding lesson without knowing it!" Kevin is fond of saying about his books. He has honed each of his popular books to hit specific targets--growing up, eschatology, cults, missions. So what seems to be an "easy and fun read" to teens is actually Theology and Life 101! Kevin has a unique gift of crafting hard hitting topics into books kids not only like but love!!
In addition to his service as senior editor for adult nonfiction at Bethany House Publishers in Minneapolis for four years, he has pastored a group of more than 400 sixth through ninth graders at Embrook Church in metro Milwaukee. Kevin and his wife, Lyn, live in Minnesota with their three children, Nathaniel, Karin, and Elise.
