Pastor Erik Johnson was born in December, 1966, at Camp Kue, Okinawa, while his father was serving in the Army and his mother was an educator. He was baptized at St. John’s Episcopal church in Keokuk, Iowa. However, he was not raised in the faith, and was not given the assurance of his salvation in Christ until his late 30’s.

After high school, which he attended in the San Francisco East Bay area, Erik spent several years attempting a career as a bass player while supporting himself with various jobs ranging from freight clerk to roofer to maintenance. However, eventually, he came to the realization that he was not the next Jaco or Geddy, and returned to school to pursue a degree in Computer Science, which he received in 1998. After graduating, he took a position in Baltimore, MD, and in 2004, after a short stint in Portland, OR, moved to Seattle, WA. It was at this point that he met his beloved bride, Erin. They were married in October, 2006.

Soon after, he began to become aware of the work of the Holy Spirit, and entered into several years of bible reading and the study of theology, apologetics, history, and doctrine. This in turn led to a public confession of faith at Denny Park Lutheran Church in Seattle, WA, where he was soon put to work as the outreach coordinator and chair of evangelism.

In 2014, Erik and Erin moved to New York, NY, for what they believed was the purpose of continuing his technical career advancement. However, it soon became apparent that God had purpose for them in New York, as they served in various roles at of Our Saviour, New York (OSNY), Trinity in the Bronx, and True Light Lutheran Church. In 2018, Erik entered the SMP program at Concordia St. Louis, and was ordained in January, 2021, and thereafter continued his service as pastor to True Light Lutheran Church. In March 2022, he was called to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, in Yonkers.

In addition to his love of Jesus, God’s people, and all things theological and historical, Pastor Erik is a dedicated coffee drinker and is always more than happy to take the time to have a cup with anyone. He and Erin are known to host board game nights.
