Missions Conference 2015
Dave & Kathy Johnson
Dave and Kathy were married in 1979. After graduating in 1981, they moved to North Carolina to begin serving under Children’s Bible Ministries. From the beginning of their missionary work, Dave and Kathy have been ministering to children. For the first eight years Dave conducted monthly Bible assembly programs in public schools in rural southeastern North Carolina. To avoid legal challenges, a Released Time program was formed in 1990 to continue reaching students during school off school property. Today, nearly 10,000 children in three states attend Released Time programs that God graciously used Dave to help organize. Many of the children have no church background and often make decisions to trust Christ after learning of God’s love for them for the first time. Dave and Kathy now serve in leadership roles at CBM’s Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go in northeast Tennessee. Dave was named director in 2007 and Kathy serves in a number of support roles including bookkeeping.
