Pastor Kathi Johnson was called to preach about God’s grace and to minister with the love of Christ as a pastor, so following a career in teaching, she began seminary. Since 2018, Pastor Kathi’s primary ministry has been curating Zion’s worship life – both in person and online. Her artistic and detailed approach helps the local and national community that is Zion find beauty and meaning in worship. She also guides Zion’s social media presence and works with the leaders of our Stephen Ministry.

Pastor Kathi completed her undergraduate degree in Church Music with an emphasis in choral conducting and a Certificate of Secondary Education at Concordia University in Austin. She studied at the Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest in Austin, finishing her Master of Divinity Degree at the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest in 2010. Her first call was to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Grand Prairie, Texas. In 2020, Pastor Kathi finished her Doctor of Ministry in Preaching through the ACTS program in Chicago.  Pastor Kathi enjoys baking, writing, walking, and yoga. She and her husband, Steve, enjoy traveling and spending time with friends, family, and their two schnauzers. You can contact Pastor Kathi at kjohnson@zionsa.org.
