who we are


Youth Ministries Coordinator

Amy Johnson, MSW
Amy has served as Youth Director at Wayside since 2001.  She is passionate about creating a community of youth who accept each other for who they are, support and challenge each other to grow, and are valued members of our congregation and community.  Amy strives to achieve this through fun, service, and social justice activities, many of which are suggested by our youth.
Amy and her husband, Eric, are trained facilitators of the Our Whole Lives/Sexuality and Our Faith program and regularly offer this ministry to Wayside youth and community members.
A member of Wayside since 1988, Amy strongly believes in speaking with a voice for progressive Christianity in today's world.  In addition to her youth work, she is a Personal Life and Parent Coach and author.
