Social justice grounded in faith. As senior pastor of Higher Hope Christian Church and an activist in the wider community, Rev. Dr. Joy Johnson has dedicated her life to seeing prayer put into action.
She is founder and president of Dr. Joy Johnson Ministries and Life Matters, Inc. and also directs trauma healing and restoration programs for families and survivors of neighborhood violence and tragedy.
“That is the work I do now, much more than say your ‘traditional church work’ and though I consider this emerging church, we have to change our methods because of a changing society, and changing demand,” Dr. Johnson shared.
