Meet The Pastoral Team

Bishop Lance Johnson
Senior Pastor

Pastor Lance has been married to his loving wife Lisa since 1987, and they have two wonderful children and one very grand granddaughter.

Pastor Lance Johnson has spent the last twenty years of his life committed to evangelism and church planting. In 1993 he founded and oversaw an International Organization for over fifteen years. While leading this organization he founded six churches, two resident drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and an accredited bible college and served as the Bishop (Overseer) for all of these churches and ministries as well as those he planted oversees.

Pastor Johnson’s passion for reaching the lost and church planting has taken him beyond the boarders of the USA and into numerous nations where he has held large crusades, organized and held many medical outreaches, planted numerous churches and bible colleges. His proven track record for winning the lost and building churches has opened the door for him to speak at conferences and churches nationally and internationally. He has been seen through his television ministry on networks such as TBN, Daystar, The Inspirational Network and many more nationally and internationally. 

Pastor Johnson is an accomplished author and his passionate ministry has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. His most recent works are the planting of Relevate Church Woodstock, Relevate Church Calhoun, Relevate Church Tamale Ghana West Africa, and Lions Gate Ministry Training Academy. Pastor Lance currently serves as Senior Pastor at the Woodstock and Calhoun locations and is president of Lions Gate Ministry Training Academy. 
Pastor Jason Bryant has been married Stephanie Bryant since 2012 and has four beautiful children. Pastor Bryant has been teaching in the Cherokee Country School District since 2004 and is currently a full time Physical Education Teacher at Carmel Elementary in Woodstock, GA. He has had the pleasure of coaching both boys’ and girls’ basketball at both the middle and high school levels. However, he states that nothing done has been comparable to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Jason Bryant has been actively involved in church for over ten years; fulfilling offices of youth leader and usher. In 2011, he met Bishop Lance Johnson while attending a Bible Study class and joined the church shortly after. Since then, Pastor Bryant has been involved in urban outreach; and in 2016 he joined the Associate Pastor Team. With his passion for the lost, Pastor Bryant considers it an honor and privilege to be under the mentorship of Bishop Lance Johnson.

Pastor Matt Milner has been married since 2006 and has two beautiful children. For the past five years, Pastor Milner has worked with children and adults in the community by coaching youth sports. His passion is youth, and seeing them commit their lives to Christ. It’s his crazy and out of box ideas that are the reason the youth can relate to him so well. 

In 2016, Pastor Milner joined the associate pastor team under the mentorship of Bishop Lance Johnson; operating as both youth pastor and pastoring on various Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

At the age of fourteen, Pastor Jennifer Davis begged the Children’s Director of her church to allow her to help. That lead into a more than twenty year ministry in the Children's department. While there, Pastor Davis served in several different areas from a teachers helper up to the Children's Department Pastor. 

With a heart for the hurting and broken, in 2016 Pastor Jennifer Davis took up the call to serve on the Pastoral Care Team; where she’s fulfilling the desire to see people healed and whole, and find the hope only Jesus can bring.
