Dec. 6—With a background in ministry, Jim Johnson ’94 admits it was an interesting twist to his journey when God directed his return in 2006 to take on the role of Director of Alumni Relations at NWC.
For the past four years Johnson has served NWC alumni, parents and churches. “The best part of my job has been the opportunity to interact with our constituents as they share their stories,” he said. “It is incredible how God has directed each of our paths first to Himself and then to, through and beyond this place we love called Northwestern College.”
Now Johnson has the opportunity to use his ministry experience as he transitions into a new role as Senior Director for Constituent Relations and Campus Ministries. He will use his interpersonal strengths and ministry background to minister to and with students, as well as continue to create partnerships with our alumni, parent and church constituent groups.
In this new hybrid role, he will focus on setting the vision for both departments and work with directors and their teams to help serve our constituents (students, alumni, parents and churches) in the best way possible as we move forward to what he calls a “new tomorrow.”
Johnson will continue to meet with alumni, parents and church leaders personally to foster stronger relationships. He will also continue to speak at conferences, camps and churches on behalf of Northwestern. On the campus ministries side, he coordinates daily chapel guests, speak once a week to the student body and disciple students in their formative faith journeys.
“I am excited each new day to be involved in what God is doing across our campus and beyond,” said Johnson. “ I love to share from God’s word, mentor through discipleship and to create environments that lead to further spiritual growth, and [now] I truly feel blessed to be able to do all three.”
