Pastor Tim Johnson is an ordained minister of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) and has a graduate of theology degree from the Association Free Lutheran Theological Seminary as well as B.A. degrees in Psychology and the Liberal Arts for the Human Services from the University of Minnesota, Morris.
Tim surrendered his life to Jesus Christ during his junior year of high school and first sensed God calling him into the parish ministry immediately after delivering his first sermon as a high school senior during his church’s annual youth-led service. Upon graduating from college, he held several positions (mostly in the psychology and management field) before answering God’s call to full time ministry.
Since ordination, he has served Free Lutheran congregations in Minnesota and North Dakota. He has also preached and taught as a guest in a number of congregations, conferences, camps and other settings across the United States. He has been married to his wife, Cindy, since 1987 and they have three sons.
Tim believes that the Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God and that it is the authority in all areas of life. He also believes that salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and that a personal relationship with Christ should have first place in everything.
Tim is currently serving as senior pastor at Christ the King Free Lutheran Church (AFLC) in Pipestone, MN.
