Eric JohnsPreaching Pastor, Marriage & Adult Discipleship

Eric Johns has been working at Monte Vista Chapel since the summer of 2015.  Eric was married to Heather in 1998 and have four kids: Samuel, Caden, Max and Danica.  A fun fact about Eric is that he is a home grown Turlock guy, and MVC was the church he was born into.  It was after graduating High school that Eric embarked to Biola University in Los Angeles, where he received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Social Science and then worked in Santa Clarita, CA at a church for sixteen years before moving back to Turlock…and back to his home church.  In 2016, Eric completed his Master of Divinity degree from George Fox Seminary in Oregon.


Having six people in the family doesn’t leave a lot of room for hobbies according to Eric, but it wouldn’t be unlikely to see him on a run in town or just getting outside!  And if you know anything about the Enneagram…he’s a two, which means he loves to jump in and be with family and friends anyway he can!


At MVC, Eric is our Pastor of Adult Discipleship and oversees Men’s, Women’s, Students and Children’s ministries. He also is a regular on rotation for Sunday morning preaching.
