Director of Youth and Family Ministries
Doug Johnson joined Saint Andrew’s as our Director of Youth and Family Ministries on August 1, 2020.
Hello! I am excited to share my love and passion for church and ministry with the youth and family of Saint Andrew’s. I grew up in California, where church was a big part of my life. As a lifelong Lutheran, the church as always been a place of comfort, a place to call home, and a place for me to be challenged and grow. I have been lucky enough to be a part of churches in California, Minnesota, Washington, Michigan, and Florida. I am thrilled to be joining you all after two years of living in Vero Beach, Florida.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in religious studies from California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. I then went on to Luther Seminary to receive my Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees. I have been on youth and mission trips to Milwaukee, Louisville, the Jersey shore, and more. I love engaging in service through the church and I am excited to see where God will call the youth of Saint Andrew’s next.
I have had a passion for youth and family ministry since I was a youth myself. I started serving my home church by helping with Vacation Bible School and it has just grown from there! I have been so blessed to work with so many youth across the country and I continue to be blessed by the youth and families here at Saint Andrew’s. I truly believe that my call and passion is for youth ministry and I am excited to share that with you all.
If you want to know more about our Youth and Family Ministries here at Saint Andrew’s please feel free to call or email me. I would love to talk with YOU!
