1-9-14 Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries Adds Assistant Director
William Johnson II  
Washington Johnson II has joined the North American Division Department of Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries (ACM-NAD) as an assistant director. “The broad experience in chaplaincy and pastoral ministry that Chaplain Johnson brings with him will be a strong asset to the department,” says Gary Councell, ACM director. “Chaplain Johnson’s primary responsibilities will be to interact with current and prospective chaplains, union and conference Adventist church leaders, and military service personnel. His territory includes the Columbia, Atlantic, and Lake Unions, as well as the eastern portion of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada.” Johnson, a United States Navy Reserve Chaplain (Commander), was recently deployed to Djibouti, Africa. During his deployment Johnson served as Deputy Command Chaplain and Senior Protestant Chaplain for approximately 3,500 service personnel at Camp Lemonnier, the only permanent U. S. military base on the African continent.

     Johnson formerly served as editor-in-chief of Message Magazine and pastor of multiple congregations in the South Central and Northern California Conferences. He is a graduate of Oakwood University, Andrews University Theological Seminary, and Reformed Theological Seminary, receiving Bachelor of Arts, Master of Divinity, and Doctor of Ministry degrees, respectively. Johnson and his wife, Joyce are parents to Washington III.
