Ken Johnson | Interim Pastor

Pastor Ken is fourth-generation Covenanter, the youngest in a family of seven. He grew up in Lincolnwood, attending our own Edgebrook Covenant Church as a child. Pastor Ken’s high school years were spent in Kinshasa, DR Congo, as his father was a physician at the Organization of African Unity. He attended Bethel College in St. Paul, MN before transferring to North Park University and earning his bachelor’s degree in Philosophy. He worked for many years in sales and reservations for Air Canada and British Airways before returning to North Park, this time to earn his MDiv from the seminary. He received his Doctor of Ministry from the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (matriculating through NPTS), as well as a certificate in Spiritual Direction. Pastor Ken retired in 2022 from Christ Covenant Church in Villa Park. He is excited to be returning to his childhood church for his second call as an interim pastor.

Desiree Robertson | Worship & Music Director, Office Manager

Desiree and her husband, Zach, have enjoyed living in the Edgebrook neighborhood and serving at Edgebrook Covenant since fall 2017. Prior to her arrival on staff, however, Desiree was already known by many Edgebrook Covenanters as a child of the church! In addition to working at Edgebrook Covenant, Desiree is also a student at North Park Theological Seminary where she is working to earn her Masters of Christian Formation. In her spare time, Desiree loves to craft home décor and refurbish old furniture. Home organization is Desiree’s therapy, and everything she does is done with a cup of coffee in one hand and some chocolate in the other.
