Eugene Johnson

Bishop Eugene S. Johnson prefers to be appreciated as a holiness preacher and pastor who was reared in the firmness and fevor of “the old time way.” He is a progressive minister, who maintains a godly compassion for souls and holds fast to the precepts of the apostolic faith and cherishes the dynamic power of the gospel. In 1983, Bishop Johnson and his wife, Executive Pastor Carolyn Johnson, co-founded Madison Pentecostal Assembly of Madison, Wisconsin.


He shares that his relationship with his wife and companion of over 40 years has had the most profound impact upon him. He rejoices in the Lord for his family which also consists of a daughter and three sons. Bishop Johnson was saved at the age of 14 and credits his faithfully under the late Bishop Gary Hunt of Greater Apostolic Faith Temple of Memphis, TN (1961-1969 and 1976-1983), Bishop Leroy Chappelle of the Church of Jesus Christ in Los Angeles, CA (1969-1974), and the Late District elder Clem Humphrey of Grace Apostolic Church in Washington, D.C., (1974-1976).

 Bishop Johnson has been very active within the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW), working at the local, state, regional and national levels for the International Pentecostal Young People’s Union, the International Christian Education Association, and the International Missions Board.

 By God’s grace, Madison Pentecostal Assembly has become well-known locally as one of the City of Madison’s most vibrant, culturally diverse, and spirited churches; and yet the city itself is not regarded as being a ferile and nurturing environment for successfully planting an apostolic church.

 Buttressed by an energetic and enthusiastic staff of ministers and a solid church administration. Bishop Johnson was enabled for 27 years to maintain full-time employment in state government and retired as Director of the Bureau of Equity and Environmental Services with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

 Bishop Johnson was called into the ministry in 1976, while in Washington D.C. and in 1983 he was ordained an Elder in the PAW. While serving in the Minnesota, Wisconsin, Dakota District Council of the PAW, he was elevated to the position of District Elder in 1996 and Suffragan Bishop in 2005.

 He graduated from LeMoyen-Owen College in Memphis with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Economics and UCLA Graduate School of Management with a Masters of Science Degree in Urban Land Economics.
