Greetings From Pastor Paul:
The Monona United Methodist Church is an amazing place to grow closer to God and to our neighbors. We are an Open, Affirming, Empowering, and Reconciling congregation.
We welcome all who come. When we walk out our doors, we serve this community. The more I learn of the various ways our members and friends take the Good News to the world, the more convinced I am of God’s presence in our midst.
After earning a Master of Divinity from the Divinity School at Duke University in 1983, I started serving United Methodist Churches in Wisconsin. In 2016, I finished a Doctor of Ministry degree in Biblical Preaching from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. My thesis was titled, “Exploring the Effectiveness of Field-Preaching Evangelism in the United Methodist Church.” Read Paul’s Theses
I am thrilled to pastor this congregation.
Come and share in our mission!
Paul Johnsen, Pastor
