The Johnsons have been leading Middle School since August of 2022. Garrett came to know the Lord when he was 20 years old and shortly thereafter he moved to Treasure Valley to attend the Bible Institute, graduating in 2008. Maggie grew up in a Christian home and trusted Christ as her Saviour when she was 10 years old. Garrett and Maggie were married in 2014, and now have three children. They have enjoyed serving in various ministries at TVBC, including teaching Sunday school and the Bible Institute. They are excited to be leading the Middle School group and have a desire to help these young Christians grow in their service to our Saviour!
