Meet Pastor


Pastor Danny Johnson, along with his wife Co-Pastor Teresa Johnson of 24 years, is both founder and senior pastor of Zion Christian Center located in Roxboro, North Carolina.

In 1994, God called Pastor Johnson to build an ark for lost and hurting people. Consequently, in obedience he answered the call and shortly thereafter Zion Christian Center was birthed. He is esteemed and revered as a man who has a genuine heart of a shepherd in addition to a fervent love for the people of God. He teaches principles of successful living for Christians so that they may transform their lives through daily application of the Word of God. Pastor Johnson’s message is one of hope, faith, love, victory and encouragement – sometimes humorous – yet always profound – but never compromising.

Pastor Johnson believes that learning is a lifelong process; therefore, he has attended various Bible training schools and is currently enrolled in the Christian Life School of Theology where he is increasing in wisdom and knowledge of the Word of God. He is a member of the International Covenant Connections Fellowship and The Ministry Institute which coaches, teaches, as well as mentors pastors and ministry leaders to accomplish all of their God-directed mandates through leadership principles, methods, systems and processes.

In keeping with God’s vision for Zion Christian Center, the Johnsons answered the plea from within and without Zion Christian Center to start a Christian school that would preserve a remnant for God known as Zion Christian Academy (ZCA). ZCA ran for nine years and although it presented many challenges, it yielded much success that is still being seen today.

Currently, they have embarked upon another endeavor to equip the saints of God known as the Higher Call School of Ministry.  At Higher Call  classes are available to those desirous to be essentially prepared to fulfill their higher call in God.

Yet, they would both esteem their greatest reward from God is their three lovely children: Darius, Candace and Danny Khari.
