November 20th: Michael Johnson, Moxee Washington
Michael Johnson learned a million little things in the U.S. Army. But maybe the most important lessons he learned as a soldier had nothing to do with combat. He learned how to be a leader and how to look at everyday life as a mission field. And those lessons continue to serve him well as a church planter in Moxee, Washington, near Yakima.
God used Michael’s time in the Army to re-awaken his desire for teaching the Bible. And so, The River Church was planted. Though the church has yet to officially launch, the church’s core group has been meeting together at a local community center on Sundays. They’ve reached out together through a community block party.
Michael has seen firsthand how the Cooperative Program can aid new churches. And our church is able to help church planters just like Michael by our support through the Cooperative Program. We also need to pray that Michael’s ministry will be blessed and continue to grow.
