Pastor Ryan Johnson was born and raised in Huntsville, AL. While at a summer retreat with his church youth group in 1997, Ryan trusted Christ & soon after was called into full-time vocational ministry. In God’s gracious providence, as he was pursuing a degree at Auburn University, he met his wife, Mandy, as they both served in the college ministry at Lakeview Baptist Church. Over the years, God blessed Ryan and Mandy with four beautiful daughters.  Ryan and his family have served at churches throughout Alabama and came to Agape Baptist Church in 2019.

Ryan’s life verse is 1 Corinthians 10:31, which says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Accordingly, whether communicating in the pulpit, the classroom, or in encouraging members in their homes, Ryan’s desire is to exalt Jesus Christ in all things & call others to find life & purpose in fellowship with God through His Spirit & His Word.
