Jeff JohnsonWorship Pastor & Creative Director

Born in Kerala, India, I came to the US at the age of 2. I’ve lived in Chicago, Detroit, South Bend, Queens NY, and Mineola NY. I’ve moved around quite a bit, and it’s shaped who I am. Growing up in a Pastor’s home I quickly observed and learned the importance of serving God in every aspect of my life. Whether it’s leading worship, teaching, or doing creative work, I always enjoy being an active part of the Church family and helping foster people’s spiritual growth.

I love being creative. In 2010 I received my BFA in Design & Technology from Parson’s School of Design in New York City. After years of working for a global tech company in NYC, my band and I (THE UPAFTER) decided to move to Austin, TX. It was a risky move, but we felt God was calling us to pursue this. After moving to Austin, I met Pastor Steve. I heard his story and vision for the local and global church. I was sold. Ever since then I’ve been helping out in whatever ways I can.

Random Facts: I’m married to a beautiful Honduran woman of God – Dana. I have a dog named Sparrow, and I love the L.A. Lakers and the N.Y. Giants. If you want me to do something, get me a pack of Lifesaver Gummies.
