Pastor James Johnson grew up in a rural, small town setting near Rocky Mount, Virginia. He married his high school sweetheart, Patricia Quinn, in 1971. They have two daughters and 4 grandchildren.
Pastor Johnson surrendered to the Lord’s call to full-time pastoral ministry at the age of 17 and has now been preaching the Word for over fifty-three years. He received a Bachelor’s degree from Piedmont Bible College (now Piedmont International University) as well as a Master’s degree and some doctoral studies from Bob Jones University. He currently serves as Pastor at Harper Heights Missionary Baptist Church in Beckley, WV. Pastor Johnson views his opportunity to speak at the Senior Saints Retreat as a distinct honor and looks forward to ministering the Word. He and Patricia have always felt a close affinity to the seniors that they have ministered to and were privileged to serve as the director of a Senior Citizens ministry called Jolly 60’s early in their pastoral ministry.
