Pastor Johnson was a member of Greater Mt Zion Pentecostal Church for 10 years under the leadership of Bishop Chester Friend. During that time he served as an usher, deacon, Christian Education teacher, and minister. Under this ministry is where the foundation of Holiness and the Apostolic Doctrine was instilled. In 2002, he heard the call from God to the capacity of Pastor, yet God also said, “now is not the time; your gift will make room for you”.
He then was a member of the Whole Counsel of God Ministries for 7 years under the leadership of District Elder Marvin Jenkins. During that time Pastor Johnson served as Choir director, Men’s ministry leader, Christian Education Superintendent, Assistant Pastor, and Executive Pastor. The time spent at WCGM was both rewarding and challenging. We knocked on doors, witnessed in the streets, and held services outside, all in an effort to win souls. From those efforts Pastor Johnson
Baptized souls in Jesus Name, and witnessed the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
November 2009, Pastor Johnson answered the call and began teaching weekly bible study at the Holiday Inn Express in Seaford Delaware believing God would provide a sanctuary for Sunday services. While on a 21 day fast God spoke and said; “stop looking for a building, and I will send a sign when provisions have been made”. Shortly their after God provided as He promised and we began Sunday services at the Comfort Inn and Suites.
In March of 2010 Jesus the Christ Apostolic Ministries became affiliated under the umbrella of the Faith Assemblies of Christ World Wide Inc, (FACWW) where the presiding Bishop is Mitchell Way. On March 27, 2010, Pastor Johnson was ordained as an Elder by the FACWW organization.
