Randy Johnson

   Dr. Randy Johnson is the Senior Pastor at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Decatur since January 2015. The Johnsons, Randy, his wife Leigh, and three children, Nathan, Anna and Caleb, moved to Decatur from Louisiana. 

  My desire for our association is to see every one of our churches become healthy and strong, and share a focus on missions and church planting, but also develop a network between churches to share resources and ideas so that we can be an encouragement to one another. I want to see our churches focused on "Rebirthing congregations" that have faced a serious decline and see little hope for the future, on "Renewing congregations" that need to be strengthened in certain key areas like children, youth, music or discipleship, and on "Reaching communities" around us that have no strong gospel presence.  If our association can come together and have a commitment to do more together than we can do apart, I know God will bless our efforts in seeing His Kingdom advanced, His Church healthy and vibrant, and His people out in the fields that are white for harvest!
