After accepting the call of salvation on June of 1965 in the Paisley Pen, Clarendon Jamaica, Pastor Johnson surrendered and dedicated his life to serving the body of Christ in many different ministries. Beginning in 1970 when he became the young president of Pentecostal C.O.G in Jamaica, and served as the Pastor for the parish of Clarendon. Pastor Johnson pastored many churches in Jamaica namely Sandy Bay, Pennantwood PCG and Effortville PCG. He migrated to Toronto Canada in the early 70’s and in 1973 he was one of the first persons with others to establish the church in Toronto Canada, which is still active today. In 1980 he relocated to the United States and after a short time he was at it again with the vision of planning a church in Paterson, NJ. Along with eight other people, he started a church in the home of Rev. and Sister Lipton Robertson. On May 29, 1983 the church was officially chartered as Trinity Pentecostal Church of God located at 550 East 23rd Street, Paterson, NJ. He also was instrumental in establishing a church in Chennai, India and another church called Light House Ministry in Paterson, NJ. The late Rev.
