Dr. Marcus Johnson

Marcus is a 20 year veteran of the US Army and a combat veteran of three wars. Born and raised in a godless family, he was angry and frustrated at life, and lived as an ardent agnostic for 40 years before having a dramatic experience with Christ and learning his true identity. Today Marcus is a transformed man thanks to the loving grace that is found in God and now has a passion to help others recognize who they are in Christ and find the FIRE that God placed in their hearts.

He holds a Doctorate in IT Leadership (ABD) from Capella University and a Doctorate in Ministry from Christian Leadership University.
