As years passed in school, Pastor Johnson was saved and sold out for Christ in the fall of 1992. He diligently strived for excellence and graduated from Morehouse in spring of 1993 with a B.S. in Biology Pre-Med. He received many awards and achievements while attending. However, on the summer of 1993 God returned to Pastor and said “Are you ready to save lives’?” Pastor thought that this meant that he was about to go to one of the many medical schools he had applied, but God said to Pastor that medical school is not in your future but “saving lives” is in your destiny. After the shock and sorrow, Pastor Johnson began to get heavily involved in his new church home, Wings of Faith, Atlanta, GA., not really knowing what was next. While working as the Director of Recruitment at Morehouse College where he recruited and mentored hundreds of young men, he began to grow strong in the Lord and developed strong humility and an even stronger thirst for God and His Word. He was ordained as a Deacon at the age of 23, and God elevated him and told him that it was now time for him to preach that he may “save lives” by bringing people to the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor was licensed in 1997 and after going before the Presby was ordained in 1998 as a minister of the gospel. God also confirmed that he would Pastor and plant a church.
After taking heed to the call to become a Pastor in the year of 1997, God revealed to him that Charleston, SC would be where he would plant the church. He answered the call. In July of 2000 Pastor Johnson and his wife First Lady “J” moved here to Charleston, SC to plant the church that we now know as The Revelation Of Christ Church, The R.O.C. Church. On September 17, 2000 the church was birthed. In ten years the ministry has grown to over 300 members. In 2002 the church purchased 2 of the 5 acres it sits on which includes the church building and a 1700 square ft. building, which is now the newly renovated Children’s Development Center. Pastor Johnson truly has the heart of God, and God is not finished with him yet.
In 2003, he and First Lady J were blessed with a beautiful daughter named Christian and then blessed again with the birth of their promised son “LJ” in 2006. And in between, he also became the entrepreneur of a program called “Partnership for a Better Community” on October 31, 2004 which brings together businesses, organizations, and the church to do what they do best by offering services for the betterment of the community. Furthermore, he has always been a proponent for education. He has plans to pursue a Master of Divinity degree while continuing to be very dedicated to his ministry, the church, his family and most of all the Word of God, for he is very determined to reach this community, city, state, and ultimately the world by “Unveiling Christ to the World”
through evangelism, education, and empowerment.
In 2007, the church went to two spirit-filled services that are rapidly growing and experiencing the transforming power of God through praise, worship, and His Word in every service.
In 2009, The P.B.C. was officially established as a 501C3 company and continue to do community outreach like the Fill the Truck Campaign where we, with the help of our Partners, donate gifts, shoes, and clothing to families in need during the Christmas Holiday. We also have yearly our Health Day Fair and Screenings along with the Walk for a Better Community, & ABF Camp (Academic Bible and Fun Camp).
In 2010, Pastor Johnson was commissioned by Bishop Eddie L. Long as an Ambassador to the Father’s House Ministry. Furthermore, in 2011, God placed in his heart to start the EWJ Scholarship Fund, and in 2012, the PBC sponsored the first Scholarship Gala where students received financial awards for their college education.
All in all, with the R.O.C. Church growing and thriving by reaching souls for Christ and transforming lives, Pastor Johnson still believes that there are more of “Them,” the world, than there are of “Us” the saints, and he believes God that by “Unveiling Christ to the World” that “Them” will become one of “Us.” And we know and believe that eyes haven’t seen, ears haven’t heard, neither has it entered into the hearts of men what God has in store for as Pastor says, “This little preacher boy”. For he still thirsts for God to use Him even more!
