Culture Influencers: Jeremiah Johnston

At the invitation of HBU trustee, Rev. Jerome Smith, Dr. Jeremiah J. Johnston was invited to speak at the Tallowood Baptist Church high school fall retreat at Camp Tejas on November 18-19. Jeremiah presented four messages around the central retreat theme of “Unanswered,” based upon Jeremiah’s book. Many students made decisions for Christ, including eight students who surrendered their lives for “full-time Christian ministry” at the close of the final session. Jeremiah is the president of Christian Thinkers Society- a resident institute of Houston Baptist University- and a professor of Early Christianity. To learn more about what CTS is doing, visit
