Jeff Johnson has a passion to see the "Church in the city," where all of those who follow Christ live in unity of purpose for the blessing of the city. That passion grew out of his time in the local church and his love of community development. Beginning from age 18, he has served in almost every capacity within a local church as well as being a coach to pastors across North America.

Jeff is one of those rare people know as a "native Austinite." He grew up here through college (UT Austin Business School), met and married his wife Leslie, and after a short side trip on the east coast they brought their two children Jared and Laura back to Austin in 2009.
