Biography of Reverend Dr. L. Chris Johnson
The Reverend Dr. L. Chris Johnson, son of the late Reverend J.D. and late Mrs. Mary Ann Johnson, is a native of Starkville, MS. Accepting Christ as Lord and Savior at an early age afforded him the opportunity to be led by God in Sunday School, Baptist Training Union, Young Usher, and various choirs. After graduating from high school, he attended Jackson State University where he received a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the US Army and later retiring in January 2014 after a successful career.
In 1996, he received his calling in the ministry under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Shawn L. Moton, Marlboro Heights Baptist Church in Killeen, TX. He was licensed by Marlboro Heights Baptist Church and ordained while serving at Holman Street Baptist Church in Houston, TX under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Manson B. Johnson. Laboring in the vineyard includes Biblical Facilitator, Sunday School Teacher, and Men's Ministry Spiritual Leader. The degree of Master of Divinity was conferred on August 2013 and the Doctor of Divinity conferred on September 2016 from the Frederick L. Ray Biblical Institute. One of his favorite scripture references is recorded in John 3:16 and out of that passage, he often states that God loved us enough to give the best -- heaven had to offer.
Reverend Johnson is married to Arnitta and they have three children, Lydia, Lexia and CJ.
