Margaret Johnson

Director of Activities Center and Recreation


I began volunteering at the Activities Center right after our family joined First Baptist Church. I volunteered for about eight years before accepting the offer to originally join the staff as Assistant to the Director, and later as the Director of Activities and Recreation. My husband, Chris and I have three adult children: girl/boy twins, Shelly and Shaun (married to Kayla and daughter Anna) and a daughter Laura and a little black dog named Scotty.

Fun Facts

A scripture that is meaningful to me: I find 2 Corinthians 12:9 to be particularly uplifting: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is: My favorite place to eat in Wilmington is PT’s, but my favorite restaurant if we are “going out” is The George on the Riverwalk. The view of the Cape Fear River from their deck is unbeatable and the shrimp and grits rival any in Charleston. Brunch after church is great there also!

My favorite vacation destination:  Florida for MLB Spring Training! You just can’t beat sitting in the March sun while seeing the players up close as they prepare for the regular season of baseball.
