Faithful to the call:
For 16 years, people's lives have become better due to the ministry of CeJay. Through his ministry, people have been healed, delivered, and set free but, most importantly, discovered their purpose in the will of God. His ministry has been featured in print publications and on television. He remains a charismatic yet humble man in ministry.
In 2018, a senior statesman within his community - Dr. Harry Blake, recognized Pastor CeJay at the City-Wide Revival as a "promising future for clergy." He has been fortunate to minister in over 100 churches throughout the city, parish, and beyond. Much of his success in ministry comes from his grandfather, Pastor M. L. Johnson, Sr. who's been in ministry for 50 plus years. In 2011, Pastor CeJay started Faith Chapel with minimum resources. It was his first church that bore many great lessons for his ministry. Being a novice at pastoring, he eventually closed the church. The closure of the church led to Pastor CeJay experiencing mental depression in 2016. By the grace of God and with help from his grandfather, he was able to recover. He realizes that all preachers' journeys and experiences are different, but he also realized he must remain faithful to the call.
Today, Charles Johnson Ministries has evolved into a nonprofit organization that uplifts the community through empowerment, employment, and community engagement while providing necessary resources to those in need. Pastor CeJay serves as chairman.
