OUR PASTOR

Detrick T. Johnson, Sr. Pastor of Abundance of Grace Christian Church.  Pastor
Johnson was formerly Associate Pastor at Anderson United Methodist Church in
Jackson, MS.  He worked very hard and was dedicated to the members at Anderson.
Pastor Johnson is a spirit filled man of God who has always had a deep love and sense
of compassion for people. He is a humble man who often says “when it’s all said and
done, the one thing that I want people to remember or know about me is that I am a
humble man”. Pastor Johnson greets as many people as possible with a warm hug and
a kind word. He visits the sick and privately counsels members of his church family.

Pastor Johnson accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at a very early age. He
loves God and often states, no one or nothing comes before the Lord. He was raised by
his dad and mom (the late Joe Johnson, Sr. and Margaret Johnson) growing up in a
home on Marion Dunbar Street in Jackson, MS with 9 older brothers and sisters.

Pastor Johnson started preaching eight years ago. He was licensed and ordained to
preach as a United Methodist minister in 2005 and received his license and ordained as
a Baptist minister in 2013. "Before I formed thee, in the belly I knew thee; and before thou
camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nation." Jeremiah 1:5

For 20 years, Pastor Johnson has been married to Karen B Johnson. The wonderful marriage of Pastor Johnson and Karen produced three beautiful children, Detrick Jr., Kaylan and Isaiah.
