The book Give God the Glory! is a how-to book. It takes the words of the Bible and applies them to life. This book will open the word to your day-to-day life.

I am grateful Deacon Kevin W.

Kevin Johnson’s book, “Give God the Glory!” sets out to help the reader discover that revelation. His timely message is both practical and penetrating providing a comprehensible plan of action well worth implementation.” - Lawrence Powell, Pastor, Agape Family Worship Center, Rahway, New Jersey ““Give God the Glory!” is full of in-depth information for the Christian and non-Christian alike.

Meet the Author

With the fundamental belief that God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things Pastor Kevin Wayne Johnson lives to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. His passion is reflected through his national best-selling book series (Give God the Glory!), that earned 17 literary awards from 2001 to 2012, all published through his Christian-based publishing company – Writing for the Lord Ministries, as a former radio and television host, and in several leadership positions within the local church, the Christian publishing industry, and the National Association of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana). A native of Richmond, Virginia, Johnson was introduced to the Bible and the Christian doctrine as a child and active member of Ebenezer Baptist Church. At the age of eight, his maternal grandmother (Granny), a devout Seventh Day Adventist, prophesied that he would preach the gospel in due season. From these planted seeds, Johnson, alongside his wife, Gail, confessed Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior on May 2, 1993. This spiritual transformation occurred slightly less than two months after their marriage on March 6, 1993. An active member of the Purpose Management Team and Pastor of Discipleship at Celebration Church, Columbia, Maryland, Pastor Johnson oversees the following ministries: Prayer, prison (men and women), Christian education (Bible Institute), Christian guidance, and the Good 4 U Health and Wellness. He also serves as Secretary, National Association of the Church of God Men’s Ministry (2009 to present). Johnson was initially ordained into the Christian ministry as a deacon while at Shiloh Pentecostal Church, Incorporated, Christian Love Center, Somerville, New Jersey, with his wife, in 2000. He is an Evangelical Training Association (ETA) certified instructor (2000 to present). Johnson is a professional in government as well as private industry. For 27 years, he has performed successfully in numerous middle and senior-level positions in the areas of workforce development, training, organizational change, acquisition/procurement, customer service, client relationships, and program management, to include the Department of Defense, Department of the Treasury, the Government of the District of Columbia, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, Department of the Army, Defense Logistics Agency, and in the private sector at Vivendi Universal and Reuters America. He has testified before the United States House of Representatives Committee on Small Business, and has prepared testimony that was presented before the District of Columbia Committee on Government Operations. Johnson is a graduate of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Graduate School’s Executive Potential Program (1996). During this program, he assisted the Office of Federal Procurement Policy with several procurement reform initiatives that were tied to the National Performance Review under the Clinton Administration. In 1999, he was awarded the distinction of “Fellow” by the National Contract Management Association Board of Directors. Johnson maintains an active involvement in community service and retains membership in several professional and civic organizations to include Virginia Commonwealth University Alumni Association and African-American Alumni Council, serving on the School of Business Board of Directors from 1994 to 1996, the African-American Federal Executives Association, the Christian Small Publishers Association, and the Autism Society of America, Howard County, Maryland Chapter. Pastor Johnson is the eldest son of Ernest and the late Adele Johnson.
