Lori Johnston
Office Manager 

One of my greatest passions is to work with women and to see them grow in their walk with God.  As well as encouraging them to keep their cups spiritually filled through Countryside’s Women of Purpose Events.

I was born in Belle Fourche, South Dakota and raised on a ranch at Colony, Wyoming until I was seven years old at which time the family moved to our other ranch west of Belle Fourche on the Belle Fourche River.  I graduated from Belle Fourche High School and Black Hills State University and in 1982 ventured off to the west coast.  Returning to South Dakota in 1992 and I made the most important decision of my life; I became a follower of Jesus Christ.  I began working for Countryside Church in 1998 and have thanked God regularly for the opportunity to serve Him through the Countryside Family.  I had never planned on doing ministry and even with all the trials it is the most rewarding job I have ever had.

I married Randy Johnston on July 9, 2011, and we make our home here in Spearfish; along with our yellow lab Duck.  Our free time is spent outdoors and with our families that live in the surrounding towns.  One of my favorite things to do is travel, and I have been lucky enough to enjoy that hobby with my two sisters.  We have been taking the “Bean Girl Trips” for several years now and have been on some wonderful adventures to some amazing places.
