Our Team

Stacie H. Johnson is the Executive Director of the Center for Cultural Discipleship, an organization that trains Christians to live faithfully in today’s culture. She has spent the last 25 years equipping believers to make disciples and reflect the Gospel in an ever-changing world. Stacie received her master’s degree in philosophy of religion and ethics from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University in California.

Stacie previously worked in leadership for ten years at Fellowship Church in Knoxville, Tennessee where she taught, coached, and created training systems for staff, families, and students across six campuses. Stacie has experience in staff development, Christian leadership, discipleship, and worldview formation.

She has previously taught philosophy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Walters State Community College in Morristown, Tennessee, and Biola University in Southern California.

Stacie’s love for equipping Christ-followers comes from her own story of growing up in a military home, seeing the diversity of the world and living with an intense curiosity about identity, truth, meaning, and virtue. As a mother in today’s culture, Stacie is passionate about developing parents, leaders, and the next generation to walk faithfully with Christ in all seasons of life. She has a soft spot for the curious, the skeptic, and the wonderer.

Stacie is married to her wonderful husband, Andy, and they are blessed with a ten-year-old daughter. She considers it a privilege to partner with God in the advancement of His Kingdom, in her home, in her community, and in the world.
