Jamie JohnsonJamie Johnson

Associate Dean for Worship Programs and University Pastor

Johnson is the associate dean for worship programs and an adjunct professor in the College of Christian Studies. A George Fox graduate, he has studied church history (MA) and Christian education (PhD) and hungers to learn more about what it means for individuals and communities to follow Jesus in every aspect of life. He is married to Erin, a professor in the social work program, and together they spend much of their energy shuttling around their three children – and loving it! In his spare time, Jamie enjoys leading worship, running, reading and coaching his childrens' soccer and baseball teams. He is a huge fan of the Portland Timbers (MLS), and the Boston Red Sox (MLB).


Rusty St. CyrRusty St. Cyr

University Pastor of Ministry and Service

St. Cyr serves as the associate pastor of ministry and service at George Fox University. He is a grateful student of 20-plus years to Christ, a lucky husband to Stephanie, a stoked dad to Ella Sophia, Matea Frances and Jack Henry and owner of a Jack Russell Terrorist named "Woody" (a.k.a. "El Capitan"). Rusty came to the spiritual life team at George Fox in 2009 after 10 years of student ministry in Springfield, Missouri, Inverness, Scotland, Santa Cruz, California, as well as serving as director for spiritual formation at Bethany University near Santa Cruz. Along with all of this, Rusty is also thankful to experience playing all kinds of drums to music, for stand-up paddling and surfing waves, for opportunities to love and learn from people of other cultures, for reconciliation, for the Shalom-growing principle that we are blessed in order TO BE a blessing, and, of course, for Spinach smoothies.
