Rev. Dr. Lori Erwin-Johnson
Spiritual Leader at Unity of Tacoma
My name is Lori Erwin-Johnson. I am honored and blessed to be chosen by the Unity of Tacoma family as the new minister and Spiritual leader. Let me introduce myself.
Family is Important
I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA. My parents moved to a small house there and I was in that home until I was an adult. After I left high school, I attended college until I began working. Later, I married my husband Rick and we had three children: Our daughter Kate, son Richard, and youngest son Nicholas. All are adults now and remain in the Puget Sound area. I currently live in Spanaway, WA with my husband and our orange tabby, Georgia
Going Back to School
After our kids were in school full time, went back to college. When I returned, I received a BA in Behavioral Science, later receiving my MS in Psychology. After completing my Masters, I continued to work towards a PhD in psychology where I focused on interfaith education as a catalyst for inter-religious acceptance.
Working Towards My Dream
While I was in graduate school, I began working as an administrator at a local Congregational church. I was ordained as a minister in the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches in 2016. Since then, I have designed and taught classes for other ministers at the university level and received a Doctor of Divinity. Currently, I am attending Unity Urban Ministerial School.
