Helping leaders gain clarity since 1998


At times the road ahead seems unclear and challenging. 

Bruce Johnson founded NextLevel Leadership to help leaders in

non-profit organizations and churches gain clarity in three key areas

organizational issues, directional blueprint and personal direction.

Bruce Johnson

Founder, President, Chief Clarifier

Bruce Johnson has guided and equipped thousands of leaders and board members toward greater clarity.  He sifts through issues, asks insightful questions, proactively listens, equips them with life-tools and speaks into the situation or a person’s life.   Clarity emerges.

Leaders seek out Bruce when they need help in pointing the whole organization in a strategic direction; or addressing leadership, team or governance issues; or personal life-direction questions.

Over 45 years of executive leadership experience including CEO of several organizations, serving on non-profit and church boards, and consulting make his insights match the real world and lead to implementation.  Bruce has served organizations in North America, Europe, and across Asia.

Bruce and his wife, Mary, live in Florida where Bruce is an avid cyclist, and Mary is a gifted artist.  They have two grown sons whose own callings have them scattered around the world. 

He has served on multiple boards including the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) where he chaired the Board Development Committee. He holds an honorary doctorate in leadership from Midwest University.
