Since 2003 Pastor Dave Johnson has served in the capacity as Youth Pastor, Pastor to Families and now as the Senior Pastor of Neighborhood Christian Fellowship in Covina, California.  Dave is passionate about making the Kingdom of God unavoidable in his own life and in the life of the church.  He loves teaching God’s word and leading in the local church. Dave is a frequent retreat and conference speaker and he enjoys speaking on spiritual formation and discipleship. He holds a BA in Political Science and a MA in Christian Education and is Ordained in the Wesleyan Church.  He and his wife Desiree have two beautiful daughters.  Whether it is going to the beach or the mountains, reading or going on a hike, Dave loves to spend time with his family and play with his kids.

Today’s Groundswell conversation is with Pastor Dave Johnson on 21st Century Discipleship.  Dave says there are 2 key questions when we get into discipleship:  Is Jesus my teacher and is my life worth imitating?  In regards to small group discipleship, Dave believes that there must be equal parts invitation and challenge, but that we are often good at one and not the other.  At the heart of discipleship is our understanding of the Kingdom of God and our place in it.
