Bishop Susan C. Johnson

In June 2007, the National Convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) elected Rev. Susan C. Johnson to serve as the first female National Bishop of the ELCIC. Delegates to the 2015 National Convention affirmed her leadership and reelected Bishop Johnson to a third four-year term as National Bishop. Bishop Johnson is active in the international Lutheran community. She is committed to the work of ecumenism, full communion, reconciliation, and passionate about engaging the church in a call to spiritual discipleship. She has led the church to speak out in several areas of justice and is actively involved in the work of KAIROS. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Bishop Johnson is the daughter of Rev. Donald and Lois Johnson, and comes from a long line of pastors on both sides of her family.
