Rev. Maddie Johnson

I was appointed to Grace UMC in July of 2019 as my first appointment in the Great Plains Conference, currently as a provisional elder. I graduated from seminary at Garrett-Evangelical just outside of Chicago in May of 2019, where I earned my Master of Divinity and served as a youth pastor at Barrington UMC and First UMC of West Dundee. My background is in youth ministry where I have been in both hired and volunteer positions serving youth and advocating for their mental wellness for the last 10 years. I graduated from college at Kansas State University with degrees in Psychology and Spanish. I feel very called to the work of inclusion and justice by means of education and community organizing, biblical interpretation particularly of the Hebrew Bible, and youth and young adult ministries. I have been so grateful for the GUMC staff and members for their support, passion for justice and service, and heart for God’s work in the community. I grew up outside of Kansas City where my dad, mom, and sister still live, and I enjoy running, watching movies, and traveling in my free time.
