Over the next few years, with the Holy Spirit’s guidance, Mark helped Life of Faith Church transition to the freedom-producing, rest-inducing grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Mark’s passion is to teach people about living the in Kingdom of God and how they can experience the fruit of grace in their relationship with God; how they can experience the power of the Holy Spirit in daily living; and how they can walk in rest concerning their finances.

Jeremiah Johnson

Jeremiah Johnson

We're thrilled to announce that Jeremiah Johnson will be speaking on Friday night, May 20 at our new location: 5101 Cyrus Circle, Ground Floor, Birmingham, AL 35242.

About Jeremiah Johnson:

Jeremiah spent the first nineteen years of his life as a drug addict, alcoholic, atheist, until a radical encounter with Jesus set him free. He was then ushered into fourteen years of legalistic Christianity that proved to be an even greater bondage than the drug addiction and alcoholism. Jeremiah then encountered the true gospel of grace which returned him back to his first love; JESUS! Now he enjoys the true freedom that amazing grace provides. With thirteen years of full time ministry behind him Jeremiah is in full stride to share the good news of Jesus and his unfailing love. Jeremiah is the senior pastor at Grace Point Church in Georgetown Kentucky, an author and also has an active traveling ministry.

Jeremiah's book, Staying Connected can be ordered here from Amazon.
