Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.
Pastor – The Rev. Douglas J. Johnson
I serve and am the pastor of the Florence Parish, which is a partnership in Christian ministry of the First Presbyterian Church, PCUSA and Bethlehem Lutheran Church, ELCA. Ordained in May of 1988; I am a graduate of Carthage College (B.A. 1975) and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (M.Div., 1988).
I was born in Elgin IL and grew up in Lombard, IL where I graduated from Glenbard East High School. After college I returned to Lombard and worked for three years as a Commercial Loan Auditor for the Lake Shore National Bank in Chicago, and then for six years in an accounting capacity for the Metropolitan Lumber Company of Oak Brook, IL before entering seminary in the fall of 1984. During my years between college and seminary I was very active in almost all facets of my home congregation, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Lombard, IL. I am married to Elaine and we have one grown son, Sam.
