Elaine Johnson wanted to reconnect with the church at the same time she was searching for a job. Her mother, who is a retired Deacon, saw Rev. Phyllis McDougal at a church conference, and she told her the church needed some help. “The job fell in my lap, and the rest is history,” says Elaine.
Elaine loves the people she works with and the family atmosphere at FUMC. She also enjoys connecting with other members of the congregation.
Outside of her work at church, Elaine is very involved in her children’s activities, including the PTA. She likes to camp, hike, scrapbook, knit, crochet and read.
Born and raised in Arlington Texas, Elaine married her Arlington High School sweetheart, Rod, in December 1991. They have two children, Jenny and Michael. Her family also includes Bud, a 120-pound bloodhound that thinks he is a lap dog. An animal lover, she also has a rabbit, and a small pond with 20 goldfish.
Elaine holds a B.B.A. in Business Education and a B.A. in Dance Education from Texas Woman’s University.
