Pastors Lonnie & Tammie Johns have been in ministry for 31 years and currently serve in Lake City, Florida.
Christ Central has grown through his leadership since its inception to a body of over 2000 members and over 70,000 square feet of ministry space sitting on a beautiful 102-acre campus. Christ Central’s campus not only includes an 825 seat sanctuary but a children’s sanctuary, a separate youth sanctuary with a gym facility, and a newly added 100 seat multipurpose sanctuary, coffee bar, and clothing shop.
They have built 3 children’s homes. 1 in the Philippines and 2 in Honduras caring for over 150 children. It is worth noting that under the direction of Pastor Lonnie, Partners of Hope International is currently in the process of building a 70-bed recovery home for the homeless in Lake City, Florida called Renewed Outreach Center, which exists to bring hope through feeding the homeless, providing clothing, education, training, job placement, counseling, addiction support groups, shelter for veterans, and transitional housing for unwed mothers. Our thrift shop is staffed by mostly volunteers and funds the ministry.
