Johnny moved to Huntersville NC in 2012 as a step of faith in response to a call to pursue full-time ministry. Since relocating to the area Johnny has served as a worship pastor and middle school pastor at local churches. He joined the GCC team at the start of 2016 as the High School Pastor.
Johnny holds a Bachelors of Worship and a Masters of Ministry.
After arriving in NC as a worship pastor God began shifting Johnny’s ministry focus to investing in young people. His desire is to see students who are confident in their identity in Christ and aware of their God ordained potential as life -long disciples of Jesus.
Johnny and Lauren were married in August of 2004 and have been active leaders within their churches throughout. They have 2 boys Jude and Eli who keep them both busy and humorously confused. Johnny enjoys songwriting, BBQ, and mixed martial arts.
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
