Mr. Johnson teaches 7th to 12th Grade at Parkview Christian Academy. Students love him and Parkview is beyond thankful for his dedication and passion. Let’s get to know him a bit together. How long have you lived in the area? I have lived in the western suburbs of Chicago my entire life. I grew up in Aurora and currently live in Oswego. Why did you become a teacher? My calling as a teacher was in stages. At ACS, I heard a chapel message about becoming a teacher when I was a sophomore. That desire to be a teacher started in that chapel. The desire grew feet when I worked for Wayside Cross Rescue Mission at Brady Elementary School. What do you love about teaching at Parkview? Parkview has always been a great vehicle for teaching ‘Christianly’. Any place that allows for the Word to be communicated in an integrated way is a great place. I also have made many friends here. This community is a blessing to work in. What’s your favorite subject and why? My all time favorite subject is church history. The reason is twofold. First, we get to see where we came from. Sometimes in American evangelicalism we forget that there is a great cloud of witnesses who knew God before we did. They offer so much to us today. That leads to the second reason which is the depth of trust and commitment to holiness in the face of the Living God that our forefathers had. It is truly humbling to read them. What’s an impactful moment a teacher had on your life? There were two teachers that were especially impactful to me and I owe them much. I encountered Mr. Robert Sampson while attending Aurora Christian High School and Dr. Mark Eckel while attending Moody Bible Institute. They taught me that all truth is God’s truth and He deserves to be Lord of all. That idea has been life transforming. What’s an interesting fact or two about you? I love the outdoors, especially camping or fishing with my family. Where do you attend church? My wife and I attend Wheaton Bible Church. Future posts by email?

Parkview’s High School Visits Ground Zero

Parkview’s High School Visits Ground Zero

By on Dec 4, 2013 in Jr. & Sr. High School | 0 comments

Recently, a group of students led by Tim Hagan and Mike Linden visited Washington, IL. They helped with the cleanup after an EF4 tornado devastated this community about two weeks ago. The group joined with others to total 110 people who met at Bayview Baptist Church where they received instructions on their duties for the day. They eventually ended up clearing debris from a local golf course. The day was extremely cold and windy, but the workers were able to warm up with hot chocolate / coffee and warm food provided by the Red Cross. The owner of the golf course thanked the workers at the end of the day with tears in his eyes. Although the boys enjoyed driving golf carts to assist in the clean up, they agreed it was sad seeing the total devastation to homes. Finding parts of computers, Xboxes, window frames, tile flooring, battered cars, etc. quickly tied this day back to the people affected. The PCA group serving in Washington, IL consisted of freshmen Jared Hagan, Jack Swenson, and Austin West along with junior Jarred Still and senior Aaron West. John Pilmer, assistant varsity basketball coach, also joined the group. They considered it a privilege to be hands serving God’s glory (from Parkview’s Vision Statement) in a very practical way.

Parkview’s Jr. & Sr. High Gives Back

Parkview’s Jr. & Sr. High Gives Back

A couple weeks ago, the 7th through 12th graders of Parkview Christian Academy helped our local community. They created a prayer garden for Caring Hands Thrift Store, a mission of Cross Lutheran Church and School, in Yorkville. Education is more than classrooms and textbooks. Giving back to others teaches our students stewardship and team work. A proven method is literally getting our hands dirty in the work of the Gospel. Parkview Staff Member. Here are some pics from the day. Two high school students, great job girls! Digging and raking away. High school teacher, Mr. Johnson, keeping everyone in line. More digging and raking. The finished product. Future posts by email? Please enter your address and hit subscribe. Parkview is the premier Christian School, Pre-K through 12th Grade, serving Kendall County and beyond.
