In youth ministry since 1988, Kurt Johnston has been at Saddleback Church since 1997. Although he leads Saddleback’s kids and youth teams, he’s still a junior high pastor at heart. Kurt and his wife, Rachel, live in Southern California and have two adult children. Many would argue that Kurt literally wrote the book on Junior High Ministry… “Controlled Chaos,” which is coming out with a Revised and Expanded version on October 10, 2018 through youth cartel.
