Peggie is a native of Saluda, South Carolina and member of the graduating class of 1970 at Riverside High School. She is the wife of Richard S. Johnson, Jr. and will celebrate 43 years of marriage in August of this year. She is the First Lady of Cathedral of Faith Ministries in Irmo, S.C. and Charlotte, N.C., and serves as Director of Women’s Ministries, Sunday school teacher, Supervisor of Children’s Ministry, and in any other capacity as needed. Peggie and Richard are the parents of three sons: Richard LaMonte, Michael Ryan, and Joshua Johnson. They have two daughters-in-love: LaTanya and Nina Johnson, and five wonderful grandchildren: Richard Grant, Daniel Allen, Samuel Ryan, Nia Amarie, and Kendall Ashlyn.

Peggie came to CIU as a Seminary student in 2001. Choosing CIU was easy after reading the online love story of R.C. McQuilkin as he cared for his ailing wife. After graduation in May 2003, Dr. Rick Higgins recommend her for employment in the Field Education Department, where she became a Field Education Supervisor in August 2003. That November, she became the Director of Bible Clubs and held that position until May of 2009 when the department officially closed. In this position, she directed and supervised as many as 13 Bible Clubs per semester and instructed team leaders, teachers and mentors in cross-cultural Bible teaching and evangelism of children and youth at the Columbia, West Columbia, Cayce, and Hopkins sites. She was assisted at these sites by assistants Andre Melvin and later Brooks Heard and numerous CIU student workers.

In 2007, she was asked by Steve Auld to travel to Belize, Central America with CIU students, where God enlarged her heart and passion for ministry to children in other countries. She continues to lead CIU students to Belize each year during Spring Break. The trip to Belize also opened doors for Peggie and her husband Richard to lead small groups from their church to the village of Barancco, where they have adopted the Primary School in assistance with the school lunch program and other areas of needs in the school.

In August 2009, Peggie became the Director of Bible Field Experience in the College of Education under the leadership of Milt Uecker and continued to instruct and lead students in cross-cultural ministry to children and youth in their communities through EDU 2420. She has been a guest lecturer in many education classes on teaching African American children and Children of Poverty. In 2010 she became a Bible instructor at the Camille Griffin Graham Correctional Institution and now teaches courses in the Prison Initiative Associates of Art degree at Camille. After representing the College of Education at Francis Marion University’s Children of Poverty Fall Workshop in 2010, she was invited to become a member of the Add-On Certification for Teachers of Children of Poverty task force, which passed SC state legislation in 2012.

Peggie is passionate about children in poverty and suffering children everywhere, and has many irons in the fire to meet those needs in America, Belize, West Africa, and South Africa. Her other passions include loving and seeking God’s will, spending time with her awesome grandchildren, praying, evangelism, sewing, reading, learning and sharing dynamics of diverse cultures, especially African American.

B.S., Multnomah Bible College; M.A., Ph.D., Baylor University

Espousing a life of faith and praxis, Glenn Gentry professes philosophy not merely as a profession, but also as a means of investing in the body of Christ and the Kingdom of God. As a four-year missionary in Botswana, Africa and a loving husband and father, Glenn believes that to serve Christ well in life requires the ability to engage with the world judiciously. To this end, he strives to invest in the lives of his students by teaching critical thinking skills and rival conceptions of life. In substance, Glenn believes that grace is that gift and paradox through which the richer reality of God's love is known and made known. By grace we are saved, and by grace we develop into a richer and fuller communion with God and humanity.

B.S., Multnomah Bible College; M.A., Ph.D., Baylor University, Texas. Missionary with African Evangelical Fellowship in Botswana, 1988-1992; instructor in philosophy, McLennan Comm. College, 2002-2004; fellowship at Baylor University, 2003-2005; local church ministry, Halfway, Ore., 1993-1998; 2005
