Sarah Johnson has been our Director of Worship at NewLife Church from its conception. Sarah and the worship team lead our congregation with intentional, Spirit-led worship; her leadership brings compassion and energy to our staff and church family. NewLife Church is a welcoming place to connect with God in song and in His Word; Sarah’s creativity and work behind the scenes directs the vocal and instrumental worship teams, sound ministry, video ministry, stage design team, children’s ministry worship team, and Friday Night Flood. 

Sarah and her husband, Craig, have been married since 1994 and have four awesome children: Hannah, Noah, Jonah, and Micah. With family, Sarah enjoys attending her children’s college and school activities, reading books, attending family reunions, camping, watching Cyclone sports, and hosting backyard movies and picnics.  Together, Sarah and Craig have served the Lord through camping ministry, youth and family ministries, outreach and mission trips, leading worship at various area churches, mentoring area youth bands, and leading weekend retreats. Sarah also mentors students in worship and music through private instruction on guitar, piano, and drums. Many of her students use their talents and skill to serve in youth bands at NewLife Church.

Although Sarah’s degree is in education, God has used her heart and passion for Him in a lifetime of leading worship. She believes it is important to know who God is, declare who you are in Jesus Christ, and live each day in the fullness of the Holy Spirit! Declaring, “I am a Child of God” is what you will hear from Sarah’s heart as she fellowships with you and encourages you in the Word of God.
