Bishop Flynn A. Johnson
Bishop Johnson also founded AMC out of a necessity to take believers beyond their normal church patterns and into the Vision of God which is to win souls and make disciples.
A third generation pastor, Johnson started ministering in 1971 while stationed with the United States Army at McGraw Kaserne Army Base in Munich, Germany. Johnson holds a degree in Biblical studies from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. and a Masters in Leadership and Church Development from` Southwestern University in Oklahoma City, Okla. and the University of South Africa in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also a member of a variety of associations including: the Board of the Physiological Science Institute, International Coalition of Apostles and Kingdom Ministry International.
Together, Bishop and Lady Carolyn help run the Cathedral School of Arts at AMC. They have also spun off organizations to help spread their ministry including: Metropolitan Ministries, Inc., Flynn and Lady Carolyn Johnson Ministries (marriage counseling), Urban Hope Publishing and the Prophetic Music and Arts Conference.
Bishop and Lady Carolyn were married in 1970 and have ministered together since 1971. The ministry is their life and their life is ministry. They have instilled the same qualities in their three children, Tifiny, Christopher and Matthew, who are also actively involved in the ministry at AMC. Although natives of California, the Johnsons reside in Atlanta, Ga. where they enjoy a variety of activities including golf, shopping, traveling, whitewater rafting, skiing, music and doting over their grandchildren.
“We do what we do not to benefit ourselves, but to benefit every person that walks through the doors at AMC and empower them to lead their families, jobs and communities to Christ,” said
Bishop Johnson. “That’s our job and we’re happy to do it.”
