Born and raised in Rockledge, Florida (near Cocoa Beach/Kennedy Space Center), Karolyn Johnson is the oldest of 4 girls to Larry Johnson and Mary Ann Beauford. She grew up as a Jehovah’s Witness where she was trained and groomed for witnessing to others about Jehovah. At the age of 19, she had a head on collision with God Himself but didn’t accept Him as her personal Lord and Savior until January 1996 through the anointed ministry of New England Pentecostal in Pembroke, New Hampshire under Bishop Stanley and Pastor Ruth Choate.
Without really knowing what God had planned for her life, Karolyn relocated from New Hampshire to Kankakee, Illinois in June of 1999. She joined New Jackson Tabernacle Church of God in Christ, under the tutelage of Pastor Tommie L. Wright, and was afforded the opportunity to teach Adult Sunday School where she passionately taught the uncompromising Word of God in a simple, scriptural manner, inspiring and challenging the hearer to do the Word of God.
As life would have it, Karolyn relocated to Tampa, Florida where she FINALLY accepted her call to preach and teach God’s Word in November 2004 under the tutelage of Reverend Dr. Earl B. Mason, Sr., pastor of Bible-Based Fellowship Church of Temple Terrace. There, being a student in the School of the Prophets, Dr. Earl B. Mason extensively taught and groomed ministers on how to do word study and preach God’s Word. She has a servant’s heart and an unconditional love for God’s people and intends on reaching those who are lost and in need of a personal relationship with Christ.
While she has served in ministry in various capacities, her primary focus is that of Christian Education. Her passion is for teaching people how to study and apply the Word of God in their everyday lives and aiding them on how to live their lives to the fullest. Her transparency has drawn innumerable souls to have a relationship with Christ and can be witnessed in her daily interactions with people of all walks of life.
When asked, Minister KJ will tell you that her desire is nothing less than to bring a message of love and hope to the world. In order to do that we must incorporate the Love deep within us and then learn how to express it in our day-to-day living. For when we walk, talk, and breathe our deepest beliefs, we are kind, compassionate and inspiring activists. Moreover, when we stay aligned with our spiritual aspirations, we learn the practice of humility and solidarity–knowing that we are always strongest when we work together. It is from this place that we receive our strength.
Minister KJ is also a multi-disciplined Executive Administrator who uses her ministry and work skills interchangeably as it pertains to client relations, management operations and creative problem solving techniques. She’s an entrepreneur owning several businesses that touches the lives of people globally. God has called her to also minister and serve the needs of His people in the marketplace.
Minister Karolyn Johnson is a licensed minister and resides in Sanford, North Carolina.
