Joan Johnson has been a member of New Salem Baptist Church since coming to Kennesaw as a blushing bride some 45 years ago. She is married to Charlie Johnson and they have been blessed by two beautiful daughters,  as well as four precious grandchildren. Joan has served as the Director of Preschool Ministries for the past 6 ½ years.

Joan’s love for preschoolers and children is evidenced by the 35 years she worked in the Cobb County School System. Joan holds a Bachelor of Elementary Education from UGA, a Masters of Elementary Education from West Georgia University, and a Specialist in Media Education from Georgia State University. 
Joan bases preschool ministry on what Jesus said,” . . . Let the little children come to me, and don’t hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”Luke 18:16
