Pastor Diana Linden Johnson

Pastor Diana began her ministry at Peace Lutheran  in June of 2016.  A native of Colorado, Pastor Diana’s faith and call to ministry were deeply shaped by ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), including participation in Sunday school and youth group, working at Sky Ranch Lutheran camp as a young adult, and service as as a full-time volunteer with the Border Servant Corps (BSC). Diana and her partner live in El Paso with their two children.  In their free time, they enjoy spending time with friends and family, gardening, hiking, biking and camping.  Pastor Diana loves being in ministry with God’s people, walking with other through life’s joys and struggles, and helping connect faith with daily life through worship, prayer, learning, service and play.
