Bishop Peggy Johnson will be the guest speaker at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church, Narvon, Pa., on Sunday, March 23 during the 10:15 a.m. service of Worship.
Bishop Peggy A. Johnson is a native of Baltimore, Md., and serves as the episcopal leader of the Philadelphia Area of the United Methodist Church, which includes the Eastern Pennsylvania Annual Conference and the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from Lebanon Valley College, a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Wesley Theological Seminary. Prior to her election to the episcopacy in 2008 she served as a pastor in the Baltimore-Washington Conference since 1980. Her churches included a 4-point rural circuit in Frederick, Md., a suburban Baltimore congregation, a campus ministry at Galladuet University and for 20 years she was the pastor of the Christ UMC of the Deaf.
