Julia Johnson

Hi there, welcome! My name is Julia- I’m a missionary at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln GO BIG RED!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the college students at University of Nebraska in Lincoln, NE! I am overjoyed at the opportunity to encounter the young men and women that the Father brings to me during this adventure. Team UNL really is one, big, happy family! I have a pretty cool story about how the Lord has been transforming my little heart and my entire life– I would love to chat and share stories sometime!

I am a big fan of this team!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.

I have been blessed to grow-up in a Catholic home and was able to attend Catholic school up until I attended Kansas State University. With that being said, it wasn’t until my years in college that I came to realize that relationship with Jesus is overfilled with mercy, freedom, beauty, and the joy of a intimacy with Him. It was in encountering deep friendships with our missionaries that I began to walk away from a life of people pleasing and being swept up by the culture of society, to then allow my heart to truly be pursued and won over by Jesus- Praise the Lamb!

In friendship with our missionaries, I was able to experience sacrificial love and witness the lives of people who were living freely in our culture. I wanted what they had and they invited me into it– because of their intentionality and the grace of God I accepted the invitation. I have become aware of the deep love the Father has for His children and I hope to love on college students in a way that their lives may also be touched by the invitation to His gaze!
