Pastor Shawn Johnson Biography: Age, Net Worth, Family, Career and Achievements

Shawn Johnson is an American pastor and author. He leads Red Rocks Church and is really passionate about changing lives.


Shawn Johnson was born on February 26, 1972, but there isn’t much information available about his background and family. About fifteen years ago, Shawn Johnson faced serious challenges – he was struggling with thoughts of suicide and substance abuse while working in Hollywood.

Back then, Shawn wondered if God could be a part of his troubled life. Thankfully, finding God wasn’t too difficult for him, but getting closer to God proved to be a struggle.

Just three weeks after dedicating his life to God, Shawn faced a setback and almost overdosed. Although he wanted to draw closer to God, he didn’t know how to do it. As a result, his faith wavered, and he felt lost on the path to God. The idea of practicing spiritual disciplines like prayer, Bible study, healthy relationships, sharing his testimony, serving others, and giving seemed foreign to him and out of reach.


Pastor Shawn Johnson was born on the 26th of February, 1972. He is currently 51 years old as of 2023.

Family Life

Pastor Shawn Johnson is married to Jill Johnson, and they tied the knot on October 21, 1998. They have three energetic sons named Ethan, Austin, and Ashton. The Johnson family resides in Denver, Colorado.


Today, Shawn is the lead pastor of Red Rocks Church in Golden, Colorado. It’s one of the fastest-growing churches in the country, as noted by Leadership Network. Red Rocks Church has multiple sites in Colorado, Texas, and Belgium.

Shawn and his wife Jill played a key role in launching the church in 2005. Starting from a modest beginning in a theme park, Red Rocks Church has expanded to nine different campuses and has been recognized on Outreach magazine’s lists of Fastest Growing Churches and Largest Participating Churches many times.

In his role at Red Rocks, Shawn often meets people who, like him, had powerful experiences with God but struggled to stay close to Him. He’s observed that his journey after becoming a believer is a shared experience.

Despite appearances, Shawn faced his own battles, silently grappling with anxiety and depression, enduring debilitating panic attacks. He believed the pain would never end and feared a life of constant suffering.

His turning point came when he found himself sobbing and screaming on the side of the road. His wife and friends brought him home, removed potential weapons, and he sat, head in hands, praying for a miracle. After his healing, he was inspired to write his second book, offering encouragement to those facing similar struggles.


Pastor Johnson is the author of two best-selling books:

Transit: Taking You Closer To God, which was published on August 1, 2014. In Transit, Shawn shares his personal journey in growing closer to God, uncovering disciplines that were critical to that journey, and invites each of us to ignite (or re-ignite) an authentic relationship with God, one that actually changes our lives today.

The second book is Attacking Anxiety: From Panicked and Depressed to Alive and Free which was published on February 15, 2022. 

In the book Attacking Anxiety, Pastor Johnson;

  • exposed the lies that lead toward isolation and replaced them with the truths that are essential for survival;
  • revealed the things that most people don’t realize are adding more anxiety and depression to their lives and replacing them with the wisdom and support that lead to true freedom;
  • explains what to do when you, or someone you love is in the middle of a panic attack, and
  • guides you through what you need to know, what you need to do, what you need to stop doing, and what you need to remember in order to attack anxiety and depression.
