From Counterterrorism to Peacemaking Pastor

One of the most intriguing conversations I have had.

Meet Pastor Johnie Wood and hear his testimony of how God took him from a 4-year-old inquisitive boy who grew up in the Pentecostal church to becoming a counterterrorism specialist in the Military to questioning his faith to finding his answers and God’s call to ministry, to Seminary and ultimately accepting a first rejected call to Pastor the local church.

Listen as he shares his testimony, how the military has shaped his vocational ministry to people in crisis and tragedy. And, the role of peacemaking that he learned through negotiations he led between extremist groups in third world nations.

Johnie has a Bachelor’s of Political Science and Government from University of Nebraska at Omaha, a Master’s of International Relations and Affairs from Troy State University European Division, and a Master’s of Divinity from Fuller Seminary. He speaks five languages and currently pastors the First Presbyterian Church in Crockett, TX.
