Johnny and Kerry grew up in the New Orleans area of Louisiana. Johnny received his BA from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and his Masters in preaching from Master’s Divinity School. He was a “late in life” minister, beginning his ministry as a Biblical Counselor at age 37. He has served as a youth pastor, associate pastor and then as a senior pastor. He has served as a regional mentor for the International Association of Biblical Counselors and is currently serving as a trustee at Southern Seminary in Louisville. His secular background is in grocery store management. He is in his 14th year of pastoring Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. His dual passions are evangelism and Biblical counseling. Training pastors lends itself to exponential influence!
Johnny has had the opportunity to go on mission to Ecuador, Costa Rica, Russia, Romania, Trinidad, and Uganda. The first day he set foot in Uganda, he knew he was called to be there.
As a young adult, Kerry worked as an office administrator, including bookkeeping and tax preparation. She has spent the last 25 years home educating their 6 children and has spent the last few years training to be a midwife and birth doula. She self published a book to share with her fellow wives in ministry, The Minister’s Wife: From Surviving to Thriving.
They are pleased that 4 (3 being adults) of their 6 children will be going with them to serve the LORD and the people of Uganda. Johnny, Kerry, Rachel (27), Savannah (22), Hannah (19), and Jonathan (15) expect to fly out August 1, 2017.

Most pastors are lacking solid theological teaching and Gospel understanding. They are often not truly saved and follow a works based methodology. Many do not have a Bible and follow whatever teaching they may hear on the radio. Although often quite sincere, they are sincerely wrong.
The average age of a Ugandan is 15 years old. Children have raised themselves and are lacking parenting skills. Adequate education and employment are not easily obtained. Fertility awareness and care in pregnancy & delivery are minimal. 62% go w/o adequate pregnancy/birth care.
They are committed to share the Gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ through:
Work with orphans and displaced peoples at Children Safe Uganda.
Supporting Africans Teaching Africans (ATA) & founders, Bob & Mary Bolitho.
Conducting marriage, parenting & Biblical Counseling seminars throughout the country.
Supporting the churches of Kiryandongo refugee camp w/humanitarian & education helps.
