The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Louise Johnson as Vice President for Mission Advancement, effective October 1, 2012.
This new position brings together the responsibilities of Alumni Relations and Church Relations, and adds the important new area of Institutional Assessment. In this function, Pr. Johnson will be responsible for assessing progress toward the seminary’s strategic goals, and reporting that information to the seminary’s faculty, staff, Boards, and other LTSP stakeholders. Pr. Johnson will work together with Pr. John Puotinen, Executive Director, and the Foundation staff in planning and carrying out strategies to meet the goals of the three areas of responsibility.
Pr. Johnson has served LTSP since June, 2004, first as Associate Director, and then as Director of Admissions. Under her leadership the Admissions Department has been recognized for exceptional achievement among its peers, and demonstrates a passion for helping women and men as they discern their call to public ministry.
Previous to her work at LTSP, Louise served as a parish pastor, and then on the staff at Wartburg Seminary in the areas of admissions, pastoral care, community life, and continuing education.
Pr. Johnson’s new office will be in the Hagan Building, Room 121. Her new phone extension and email address will be publicized as those transitions are completed.
Please join us in welcoming Pr. Johnson to her new role in service to the seminary and in a new opportunity in ministry.
