About the Author

William (Bill) Johnson and his wife Rita live in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and have been happily married for over fifty years. They have been in ministry together since 1980 and have taught classes and workshops throughout the US and overseas. During the past years of ministry, Bill often ministered to pastors and church leaders. 

In 2001, Bill & Rita - along with some sympathetic friends - established Aslan Ministries, Inc. a non-profit corporation with the purpose of encouraging and equipping the church and its leaders. Aslan Ministries Inc. provides counseling, coaching and in-person workshops on discipleship, ministry, prayer, leadership, and spiritual development.

Bill began writing in elementary school and has continued throughout his career in industry before entering the ministry. As an electronics engineer and executive, he was responsible for the curricula development, technical writing, and teaching for the military and aerospace fields. 

After many years of climbing the corporate ladder and getting near the top in his field, Bill realized he had been climbing the wrong ladder. He then walked away from corporate life and entered ministry.

Bill's undergraduate studies were in Electrical engineering, Mathematics, (Georgia Tech) and economics (University of South Alabama) and he has a Master's degree in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Bill's writing combines personal story and unique insight with an orthodox Christian theology in a style that explains life issues in an easy-to-read form.
He is working on a series of books on the ministry of Jesus to encourage and equip the church to continue Jesus' ministry. The first two books, "Pray Like Jesus" and "Heal Like Jesus" are now available. The third book in the series will be out his year with the working title of "Love Like Jesus."

In addition, Bill has eight other books available on Amazon.

After years of being active in individual and team sports, he now has to be content with being a spectator.
