Mike Johnson has been the pastor for preaching at Ridgeview Bible Church since 2013. Before that, he was an associate pastor in Central Florida for five years, and, before that, a church-planting missionary working with un-reached and least-reached people groups in Northern Asia. He began ministry in the mid 90’s, coordinating the short-term ministry programs of a major evangelical mission board.

Mike and his wife, Maya, have 4 children: David, Hannah, Timothy and Nadia. They love the Chadron community and the Nebraska Panhandle lifestyle. They also enjoy reading, writing, languages, outdoor sports and all things family.

Pastor Mike is committed to expository preaching, believes the church is at its best when the gospel is at its core and describes his ministry ambition in this way: “My objective in life is to bring glory to God by enjoying, living, and proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ at home and among the nations; by being a disciple, making disciples, and by serving Christ’s bride, the church, through preaching, shepherding and outreach.”
