Stephen Johnson

Pastor of Public Safety Chaplaincymobile: (203) 809-6928

I grew up in Milford, Connecticut and graduated from the University of New Haven with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.  During my time at the University of New Haven, I was the leader of the CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) ministry on campus.  It was during this time that I recognized my call to ministry.  I earned his Master of Arts of Theological Studies from Liberty University School of Divinity while working full time in public safety.

I continue to work in public safety, but also serve as chaplain to several public safety departments in both Fairfield and New Haven Counties.  As a chaplain, crisis interventionist, and fellow emergency services professional, I bring God’s love and comfort to those enduring sorrow, grief, and suffering.  I am also an advocate for first responder wellness and peer support and am a sought after speaker in the area of critical incident stress management, first responder wellness, and delivering high quality customer service in the emergency environment.

While I am enthusiastic about evangelism, apologetics, and systematic theology, I am most passionate about helping others find the fullness of life that Jesus offers (John 10:10).  It is my goal to integrate the culture of gospel into the fabric of my community, specifically by bridging the gap between the faith and public safety communities.  I enjoy reading, drinking coffee, watching movies, and practicing mixed martial arts.  I live in Fairfield with my gorgeous wife Lauren and my gentle-hearted stepdaughter, Aubrey.
