Pastors Jonathan & Carri Johnson

Rev. Jonathan H. Johnson currently serves as an Elder in Pastoral Ministry at Our Father’s House Christian Community Church in Chili WI. In 2015 he received his Certificate of License and Ordination from Our Father’s House. In 2014 he received a Certificate in Christian Apologetics through Biola University in La Mirada California. In 2012 he received his Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Christian liberal arts school, Asbury University, in Wilmore Kentucky. He serves as a studio artist for Furocious Studios. He was raised and was a full member in the United Methodist Church; in later years he joined the Wesleyan Church and served there for 12 years. He is a lifetime aficionado of John and Charles Wesley and took course credit in Wesleyan doctrine. In college he found inspiration from early revivals and the Holiness Movement sparked by the Wesleys and Sir Francis Asbury. In his time of service in the ministry he has rekindled his appreciation for John Wesley in his study of Wesleyan sermons, liturgy and hymnology.

 

Both Jonathan and Carri are experienced public speakers. Most of Jonathan’s experience comes from service to the community: when he held the position as Volunteer Coordinator for the Salvation Army Corps of Battle Creek Michigan, and also his speaking engagements when his family was an Ambassador Family for the March of Dimes.

They both regularly teach a Bible study and on occasion have preached from a church pulpit. Below are examples from when messages were recorded.

Personal Statement:

han-me-preaching

Bilingual Service at Han Mee Korean American Church

Our living savior has granted me the privilege to serve as His hands and feet to the lost, and broken, in whatever community He has rooted me.

My number one concern is to personally know Jesus Christ and develop my relationship with Him as the source of all my life’s ambition. Without Him, none of us are of any use, and are in desperate circumstances. God desires holiness, without which none will see Him.

I surrender each day, I walk on to maturity only by the power of the Holy Spirit. This is my purpose and hope for all those I encounter. If you are to walk with me then you must face this challenge.

I am convinced that the only hope for us and our country is that we fall on our faces before Almighty God, fast, pray, repent, and intercede for our world. God’s revival is our legacy and we will live it out at the cost of our own blood in His service.

Youth and Young Adults:

I have a burden for our Youth and Young Adults because they are the church of today, as with the rest of the church body, they need to be discipled as followers of Christ and brought up as leaders in the community. My challenge is to equip every believer to meet the challenge of 1 Peter 3:15 and prepare them to give an answer of the hope God has placed in them…not to be satisfied in blind faith, but to also understand the substance and reason of our faith.
