Maurice Johnson

Senior Pastor

My name is Maurice Johnson and I am the Founder & Senior Pastor of Winners Church. I am the visionary of this awesome local church! It is my honor to pastor such a wonderful congregation.

I am a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center, a member of the Rhema Ministerial Association International and the Fellowship of Inner City of Word of Faith Ministries. I am passionate about seeing lives changed through the teaching of God's Word and the demonstration of His Spirit.

I like Urban Praise and Worship, Christian Contemporary and R & B Music. I'm really into Israel Houghton and the New Breed. I think they are an excellent music ministry group.

I love going to libraries and book stores. I have an insatiable desire for books and the knowledge, wisdom and understanding they contain.

ASSOCIATE PASTOR

Boring and irrelevant were the two perceptions I had growing up when considering a life with Christ. I soon found out that being a believer and walking by faith and not by sight is an adventure that everyone should experience. Once I stepped through the doors of Winners Church I felt at home and inspired to live on purpose and to glorify God through serving Him and those around me. After being born again, I was never "bored again" and now I enjoy introducing this life to others.

Patrick Keller

EXECUTIVE PASTOR

As a child, as long as I can remember, I thought about my future and destiny. I would ask questions like: What is my legacy? What will I be known for? All that changed when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and gave Him my life. Then He led me to Winners Church and one of the greatest chapters of my life, filled with adventure and challenges, began to be written about me. Winners Church helped me to discover who I am and what I have been designed for. With teaching from Pastor Maurice like "Destiny Now" and "Understanding Your Destiny" I began to comprehend and acknowledge that God created me and my destiny is hidden in Christ. I love Winners Church and I am thrilled to be apart what God is doing in Winners Church.

YOUTH PASTOR

Growing up I can remember learning a lot about God. My grandmother used to sit with me and read the Bible. She taught me the model prayer "Our Father" and I continue to pray that prayer even today. That's where it all started for me. As a youth, the foundation of who Christ is was poured into me. As I was growing up I always knew there was a higher power to obey. As I grew older the time came for me to make a decision in my life. There was a tugging on my heart and I wanted something more because of the emptiness I was feeling. Jesus quickly filled that void when I made the choice to become saved. A close friend, Patrick, who is now an associate Pastors of Winners Church, introduced me to Pastor Maurice. He led me into the sinner's prayer and that's when a new life with Jesus Christ began. From listening to the teachings and preaching of Pastor Maurice, I have learned a great deal about the things of God. I learned that I can live out my dreams because with Christ all things are possible. It's only right for me to tell others about the good news I have received, and so that's what I do. I love the people of Winners Church and I am excited to be involved in ministry as well as being a member. This is only the beginning of my destiny--THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!!!!!!!
