David Johnson, Ph.D.
I came to Providence in 1990 to teach New Testament and Greek. In 2002, I became Dean of the Seminary. In 2007, I became Executive Vice President and Provost. After a year as Interim President, the Board appointed me President in 2013. As President, I enjoyed meeting new people, saying thank you to donors, and getting chances to share the great things God is doing at and through Providence. I retired in 2021. I continue to teach Biblical Studies from time to time.
I am an active father and grandfather. I enjoy family time. My wonderful wife, Barb, and I also enjoy traveling on our summer holidays, particularly to the US and Canadian National Parks where we appreciate getting close to creation by hiking. I attend Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church and Stonehouse Covenant Church in Steinbach. I enjoy watching most sports and try to stay in shape by gardening and walking.
I love to study, preach, and teach Scripture.
