Conference Host

Darrell Johnson

Teaching Fellow, Regent College

Darrell Johnson joined the faculty of Regent College in the fall of 2000. Before moving to Vancouver, he served as Preaching Pastor and Senior Minister for a number of growing Presbyterian Churches in the US, as well as for Union Church of Manila, the Philippines, during the so-called “People Power Revolution.” During his full-time service with Regent, Darrell taught many courses, including Introduction to Preaching and Worship, Re-Evangelization of the West, Education & Equipping, Pastoral Care, and preaching of various books of the Bible (John, Psalms, Sermon on the Mount). Also during that time many of his expository sermons were put into book form, including sermons on The Revelation of Jesus Christ (Discipleship On the Edge), the Beatitudes (Living in Sync with the Reign of God), Experiencing the Trinity, and the Lord’s Prayer (Fifty-Seven Words That Change the World). He is the author of a major work on preaching, The Glory of Preaching. In 2009, he stepped down from the full-time role, to serve the historic First Baptist church in the downtown core of Vancouver. He “retired” from that role in 2016, and is now engaged in writing, itinerate preaching, mentoring young preachers, and serving Regent as “Teaching Fellow.” 

He and his wife Sharon are parents to four children, each adopted from a different part of the world, and now enjoy nine grandchildren.


Worship Leader

Corey Janz

Worship Coordinator, Regent College

Corey is a theologian, musician, and liturgist who serves as Regent College's Worship Coordinator. When planning and leading corporate worship, Corey gets excited about how liturgy not only helps us worship the God we serve but also provides a way for the Holy Spirit to address us in prophetic ways. In addition to his work at the college, he is continuing his studies here in the hopes of making further theological intersections between social formation, ritual, and myth.
