Founder, Standing Together, M.Div. '92.
As a former Mormon, Greg Johnson is passionate about building bridges of relationship and dialogue with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, better known as the Mormon Church. Greg established Standing Together in March 2001 with the vision to see the Utah evangelical Christian community “unite for greater spiritual impact.” There are now about 100 evangelical churches involved in Greg’s informal network to support each other in prayer, networking, and strategic outreach. In November 2004, Standing Together and more than 50 local churches and schools worked together to bring famed apologist, Ravi Zacharias, to Utah where he spoke to nearly 7,000 people in the historic Mormon Tabernacle on Temple Square, which had not been done since D.L. Moody did it in 1899. “I believe that God is indeed working through a more united Body of Christ in Utah to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to our community,” said Greg “and that loving, respectful relationships with our Mormon friends have opened tremendous doors of understanding and dialogue with them.”
