Discover Your Place A Community of WORSHIP

Twice weekly the Johnson community unites in Chapel to engage with God and each other in prayer, worship, and teaching. Faculty members and staff also lead weekly small groups on a wide range of topics including literature, songwriting, and social justice.

A Community of BEAUTY

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains overlooking the French Broad River, Johnson University’s beautiful Knoxville campus is equally serene and active. Just 12 miles north of campus is the bustling city of Knoxville, with its restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, art galleries, rivers, and lakes ideal for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. Drive an hour south to Gatlinburg, which borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in the country, boasting 850 miles of hiking trails and more than 100 waterfalls.

A Community of SERVICE

Through the Service and Learning Together (SALT) Program, students apply classroom principles to community service projects. Over the course of four years, students spend more than 120 hours outside the classroom, serving the communities, ministries, and causes they care about.

A Community of DISCIPLESHIP

In addition to the practical experience they bring to the classroom, faculty members of Johnson University demonstrate a student-centered approach to discipleship. Small class sizes (average student: faculty ratio of 14:1) enable personal interaction between students and faculty. And since most faculty members live on campus, they often eat lunch with students in the dining hall and invite them into their homes.

Prior to coming to Johnson University, I knew it had a lot to offer when it came to quality education and spiritual engagement. But the sense of community I have gained as a student has surpassed all of my expectations.

Campus Life Career preparation, spiritual growth, and lifelong friendships are all part of the Johnson experience. Embrace your school spirit and cheer on the Royals athletic teams. Try your hand at ultimate frisbee. Play a part in a theatrical production. Or gather with other students seeking change in the world through social justice and missions. Whatever your passions, you can find like-minded people and engage in a dynamic community. Need some alone time? Stroll along a trail by the river, then stop by the Prayer Oak for some reflection. Johnson’s beautiful Knoxville campus boasts modern and well-equipped undergraduate residence halls. Each two-person dorm room has internet access, personal temperature controls, movable furniture, and a private bath. Bond with your dorm mates during Floor Wars, whip up a batch of brownies in the common kitchen, and settle in for a late night study group. In The Underground, you can play a game of pool or ping pong, watch a movie on a large screen TV, enjoy a cup of Starbucks® coffee by the fireplace, issue a wallyball game challenge, or devise strategies for how you and your friends will win the Founders’ Day battle of the classes.
