John Johnson, Campus Minister – John began in campus ministry as a student at Western Illinois University where he led worship, served as a small group leader, and realized the incredible opportunity that campus ministry presents. Because of this he now works at CCF in Iowa. Prior to coming to Iowa City he completed a Master in Divinity from Lincoln Christian Seminary with an emphasis in Worship Studies. John has a passion for board games, Chicago sports teams, movies, and leading others into a deeper relationship with Christ. He is the guy that tends to speak during the Gathering and he will warm you with his sense of humor, charm, and humility. On top of all of these attributes John's life is made busier and more enjoyable because of his wife Mandy, and two kids Brennan and Zoë.
Amanda Redlinger, Campus Minister - Hi! My name is Amanda Redlinger and I'm the women's Campus Minister at CCF Iowa. I'm originally from Iowa City but went to Moody Bible Institute in downtown Chicago for my undergrad and am currently working on a Masters in Social Work from Iowa. My passions in life include music, reading, the great outdoors, traveling, coffee (especially if I'm drinking it over a deep conversation), Disney movies, and my awesome family (which includes my parents, my 3 crazy sisters and brother-in-law, my adorable niece, and my husband who is the love of my life). I also love spending time with people, whether that means just hanging out and having fun or discussing the deeper things of life. However, the most important aspect of my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ and my greatest passion is helping other women know Him more.
