THE REV. DARIN JOHNSON

Campus Pastor

Pastor Darin has served as a Minister of Word and Sacrament of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America since 1996 — serving congregations in Colorado for 8 years, full-time in campus ministry since 2004, and here at Agape House since 2009. He is passionate about the spiritual and vocational formation, including leadership development, community organizing, and supporting the southwestern region of the Lutheran Campus Ministry Network, which he helped found. He is a former structural engineer and first responder, and he also enjoys cooking for the Agape community as well as neighborhood potlucks and hiking and camping with family and friends.

Engagement Coordinator

Antoine hails from the island of Barbados by way of Brooklyn, NY. He has spent time as an Adjunct Math Professor, Licensed tax professional and High School Math teacher. Curious about God, leading retreats and planning service learning trips, Antoine also spent 5 years as the Director of Campus Ministry at Waldorf University before moving to San Diego. He is currently 28, and although his journey has been uncharted and filled with many life giving opportunities, the one recurring thing that keeps him inspired is how much healing can be found in community; when we approach each other with a posture of humility and walk away from our interactions with a sense of awe and wonder.
