The Office of the Pastor

Shawn L. Johnson, Ed. D.

Rev. Johnson is a proud native of Gresham, SC in Marion County. He the son Nathaniel

and the late Linda Johnson Williams. He has 1 daughter, Jaqairia Rogers. His siblings

are Tremayne and Yolanda Johnson.

He recognized the call on his life at an early age. At the age of 18, he accepted the call

to preach at White Hill Missionary Baptist Church and began his journey to deliver the

Word of God. He preached his initial sermon in August 1997.

Shortly thereafter, in March 1999, Rev. Johnson became the pastor of Hill Chapel

Missionary Baptist Church, Duford, SC. In November 2009, he also became the pastor

of New Providence Missionary Baptist Church, Darlington, SC.

An effective communicator of God’s Word, Pastor Johnson is known for his practical

teaching and preaching. His style plainly lays out the scripture so that those who hear

him are able to apply the timeless truths of Scripture to their everyday lives. He has a

passion for serving and helping others. He is devoted to reclaiming those who are lost

and planting the seed for those who have yet to confess the Lord Jesus Christ. In doing

so, he doesn’t focus on getting those who are lost to join a church, but rather confess

their sins, acknowledge that Jesus is indeed the Son of God who came and died, and to

devote their lives to the Kingdom of God.

Dr. Shawn Johnson currently serves as Superintendent of Clarendon County School

District Two. Formerly, he served as Superintendent of Barnwell School District 19 in

Blackville, SC. Prior to becoming a superintendent, Dr. Johnson served as a classroom

teacher, assistant principal, school board member, and principal, for various school

districts in SC. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Coastal Carolina University,

Master of Education in Divergent Learning from Columbia College, Master of Education

in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Winthrop University, Educational

Specialist in Educational Administration from South Carolina State University, and his

Doctor of Education degree from South Carolina State University. He also received his

Master of Divinity degree from Payne Theological Seminary.

Rev. Johnson is grateful for all that God has blessed him to be able to accomplish in his

life; however, no earthly accomplishment can compare to the joy he feels when

preaching and teaching the Word of God.
