Pastor Johnny Silva began serving as Director of TCU Wesley in the July of 2018. He enjoys long walks on the beach, movie quotes, sports, and connecting with students and faculty at TCU campus. Johnny is an ordained minister in the Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church and serving in the Central Texas Conference.
Johnny earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from UTSA. While in his last semester at UTSA, Johnny met his beautiful wife Laura at a UMSM fellowship event. A couple years later, both Johnny and Laura went on to Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University where they received their Master of Divinity. After graduating, they served as associate pastors at Corpus Christi First United Methodist Church for three
years. Laura went on to receive a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from UTSA and serves as a Pastoral Counselor at Methodist Hospital, and Johnny served for 5 years as Campus Minister in the very United Methodist Campus Ministry where it all began. Now, he looks forward to what God has in store as he serves as Director of TCU Wesley.
When he’s not hanging out with college students at TCU, you can find Johnny at a sporting event, taking in some golf or disc golf, or living it up with his 5-year-old son "Action" Jackson, 1-year-old “Hard” Knox, and amazing wife Laura.
