Our Retired Clergy
St. Andrew is blessed by the presence and gifts of many experienced and retired clergy who are part of the congregation. Revs. Bill Aber, Dick Harrison, Frank Iske, Bill Renfro, Carl Soderberg, Richard Stoops, and Joyce Thompson are among the retired clergy who worship at St. Andrew.
Most of Dewey’s ministry has been in Albuquerque. He was the organizing pastor of Cristo del Valle, a congregation who a few years ago turned their facility over to Camino de Vida.He taught math and religion at The Menaul School and was once the Part-time Pre-Organizing Pastor of the Far Northeast Heights Presbyterian New Church Development - say that several times as fast as you can - which then became Sandia Presbyterian Church.
Dewey has been involved in the Albuquerque community for many years. As a pastor he brought medical services to the South Valley by convincing Lovelace to begin its Rio Bravo Clinic.
We welcome Reverend Dewey Johnson to St. Andrew as our Bridge Pastor. Rev. Dewey Johnson is a retired PCUSA pastor who resides here in Albuquerque. He grew up in Roswell unalienated by most every thing. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from what is now West Texas A&M. He received his Master of Divinity from Austin Theological Seminary.
