Johanna Duterte – Director

 

Johanna Duterte is a huge San Francisco Giants fan, but an even bigger fan of our beautiful Orthodox Faith! This will mark her 22nd year attending summer camp at St. Nicholas Ranch as a camper, counselor, camp management team member, and now the Director of camp. She has also been a camp counselor at Ascension Cathedral’s (Oakland, CA) Summer Camp as well as atHoly Trinity’s (Portland, CA) Camp Angelos. She was born and raised in the Bay Area and spent ten years in Southern California where she graduated from Long Beach State in 2006. During her professional career in Long Beach she worked in the wedding, corporate, marketing, sales, and restaurant industries and was a member of the FDF Management Team from 2005-2008 as the Hospitality and Judge’s Coordinator.

After moving back home to the Bay Area December 2011, Johanna began volunteering her time to assist the Metropolis Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries and as the GOYA Director at her home parish of St. Nicholas in San Jose.  While doing so Johanna felt a calling to work for the Church in youth ministry.  With prayer, patience, and trust in God, she eventually was led to an opportunity to serve the Metropolis of San Francisco. Johanna was honored when asked by His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco to take on the responsibilities of the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries for the Metropolis as the Youth Director beginning July 1, 2014. She humbly asks that you keep her in your prayers as she begins this new journey & ministry for the Church. Glory to God for all things! #LiveOrthodoxy
