Our Saviour Evangelical
Pastor Johnson's began his call with us on August 12. Please join us as we welcome him.
Pastor Johnson was ordained in 2000 after graduating from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He has served as a youth and family pastor in his first call, to serving in a college and farming town, to a historic city, and now as pastor of Our Saviour. He loves working with youth, neighboring churches, and uplifting members to use their spiritual gifts to do God's work.
He is a self-proclaimed nerd in the truest sense of the word. An avid reader, who plays video games, and has been known to construct a LEGO or two, Pastor Johnson can use these nerd like qualities to connect with people who may not be connected to the church.
His ministry passions, besides working with youth and ecumenical work, are standing with the LGBTQ+ community, helping those in need, speaking up for the immigrant and refugee, speaking out on issues of race and discrimination, and caring for those who may feel disenfranchised or voiceless. He has a long history of connecting with many communities to remind them of God's love and grace as they are, not as they ought to be (Brennan Manning's words).
He has been married to his partner Patty for over 20 years.
