Pastor Quinn Johnston

Associate Pastor, Summit Youth & Young Adults

Experiencing God’s call into ministry after working in Insurance, Quinn’s heart is to see the youth and young adults of the Church encounter Jesus and share their faith with others. Quinn works with an incredible team of youth volunteers to create a space on Wednesday nights that is both fun and safe for students to share about their lives and faith. Quinn also runs our Young Adult Groups, which is a place to be fed both with food and the Word.
