Edward Johnson
Senior Visitation Ministries
Edward came on board at St. Stephen’s in January, 2010. He is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, recognized for 50 years of service at the Wisconsin Annual Conference. Upon retiring, he and his wife, Lorraine, moved to Madison. Their interests center around art, antiques, travel, sewing, entertaining and enjoying nature at their cabin. They have two sons, both married, Kenton living in Auckland, New Zealand, and Erik living in Bellevue, WA; and one grandson in Auckland, New Zealand. Edward is grateful for the opportunity to be in ministry at St. Stephen’s, which he finds to be most receptive and hospitable. Since both of our denominations are now in full communion, St. Stephen’s is not only “talking the talk” but “walking the walk.” Click here to email Edward Johnson
