Rev. Don is married to Corinne (nee Mannikko) and together they have been blessed with 9 children. Before moving to Fort Wayne the Johnson’s called Reed City, MI home and are very excited about returning to a small town where everybody knows you and everything is within walking distance. In Reed City Rev. Don was the store manager for the McDonald’s located there.

Rev. Don’s aspirations are to get to know everybody here in Amherst and learn as much as he can about central Wisconsin. He hopes to stay here for a good long while and put down roots in this wonderful town. He is thankful to God for the chance to be His shepherd here in Amherst.
