Ashley Johnson grew up all over California and while her residency may have changed a lot over the years, her love and passion for ministry has not. Her parents, Mel and Kellye, brought her up surrounded by ministry and by the time she was in the third grade God had placed it on her heart to be a missionary.
Over the years it had become difficult to find opportunities to go overseas to do mission work, but Ashley came to recognize that mission work can happen anywhere and so she focused on ministry within her community, helping with various bible studies, Sunday school, and VBS. This passion only grew so that when it came time for college she chose to pursue a degree in Theology at Concordia University, Nebraska. It was during her years at CUNE that she came to know about the Deaconess position and started focusing her studies within the Pre-Deaconess Program.
Ashley graduated from Concordia Nebraska with a degree in Theology and after completing her two year experience in Cambodia hopes to continue to get her Masters in Theology and fulfill her Deaconess degree at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Ashley will be joining “Stronghold Cambodia”, a Christian Cambodian organization whose mission is to empower Cambodian communities for positive change through Christian care and learning by equipping Cambodian children and parents physically, intellectually and spiritually. Ashley will be sharing her faith while she teaches English. She invites you to join her in God’s mission through your financial and prayer support, as she shares the love and hope of Jesus to children in Cambodia.
Any funds raised that exceed Mission Partner’s agreed upon stipend amount will become the property of MCN. In the alternative, excess funds may be used to support Mission Partner in missional activities under a new MOU, or Mission Partner may assign, after consultation with the Executive Director, any excess funds to one or more Mission Partners who are in good standing with MCN. The purpose for this is that any funds raised are to support missional activities throughout the world, and not for the financial benefit of MCN.
