Lorraine Johnson resumed her position as director in June of 2014 originally serving the Grace Place preschool as director from 2001-2011. She has been with the church for over 20 years and feels “blessed to be back.” She is indispensable part of our team overseeing and planning the care of the little ones. She has an Advanced Level Director’s Credential and has been in the Early Childhood Education field for more than 15 years.  Lorraine also is married and has five grown children of her own.

God’s ways are not our ways and  initially Lorraine never planned for a career in Early Childhood Education. However,  she is forever grateful that God knew the desire of heart before she  even realized it. He placed her in this wonderful position, gave her a love for children and filled her with a passion for sharing the love of Jesus to little children.
