Tricia Johnson - Executive director

Tricia was born and raised here in Grass Valley. She graduated from Nevada Union High School then went on to Sierra College and Point Loma Nazarene University, majoring in Child Development. In 1993 Tricia married Steve Johnson, also from Grass Valley. Together they have 3 wonderful sons, Calvin, Trevor and Sam. 


Supported by Steve, Tricia lived her dream of being a stay-at-home mom, while spending extra time serving in Church and other Christian ministries. Prior to becoming the Executive Director of Anew Day, Tricia served as a Teaching Leader for Bible Study Fellowship International (BSF), a global organization of in-depth Bible Classes. For 10 years Tricia taught and directed the Grass Valley BSF women’s class, which grew to 220 women and 115 children under her leadership. 

Christian ministry and community service have always characterized Tricia’s family. Her parents Jim and Anita Mills worked in the school system and were prominent youth ministers in Nevada County.  Both her brothers, Scott and Ben Mills are teachers, coaches and youth ministers here as well.  Her husband Steve Johnson is Captain of the Grass Valley Police department and their two oldest sons serve as staff members of local youth ministries. Tricia also has a heart for her community and feels called by God to reflect His love and to help people find hope and healing in the midst of their circumstances.
