Donna L. Johnson
Donna grew up surrounded by faith. Being a pastor’s kid, she recalls committed her life to Jesus at the age of five. As she grew, a sense that God had something more for her. This spurred her to pursue studying at a bible college. This spring boarded her into a life in ministry, primarily within the local church context. Recently, Donna and her husband, John, accepted an opportunity to lead the Tri-State Adult & Teen Challenge. They have three children and reside in Keyser, WV.
Mark Nathan Walter
Nathan first came to faith as a child during a church service. His parents were with him and shared in the joy of leading their son to Christ. Life did not go as planned, however, which led to a spirit of bitterness and anger. Eventually, through attending a service with friends, God grabbed ahold of him once again and released him from the anger and bitterness that had dominated his teenage years. From that moment, God has opened up doors to minister to others, especially young people, and share the hope that is found in Christ. After several years of touring with a Christian band, Nathan answered the call to be a youth pastor. Nathan and his wife, Daisy, have three children, and live in Rockledge, FL.

It was in 2001 that Ben placed his faith in Jesus. God began to reveal himself through the beauty of creation. Not long after, he began working closely with a Christian at work. As this relationship grew, Ben was challenged to receive Jesus. He said yes to Jesus and has not looked back since. As he grew in his faith, more ministry opportunities began to come his way. This led to an opportunity to serve with MN Adult and Teen Challenge for nearly ten years. Recently, he’s accepted the position of Senior Pastor at Remnant Ministry Center. Ben and his wife Dawn, have five children and make their home in Merrifield, MN.

Doug first accepted Jesus in his living room at the age of 22. It was not long after that he began do sense a desire to serve others.

Special Ministry License in Church Leadership and Administration
Michael first experienced God working in his heart when he attended VBS at a local church as a fourth grader. This was the first time he had been at a church and there was something that kept drawing him back. He began attending youth group and growing in his knowledge and understanding of Jesus. It was not, however, until he was 15 years old, that he understood the love of Christ and accepting Him as his savior. Michael was gifted with a business acumen that brought success shortly after college. A desire continued to grow in him to use this skillset to benefit the kingdom of Church. This led him into parachurch ministries where God has used his business skillset to further several different ministries, all the while serving in leadership opportunities in his local church. Michael and his wife, Davina, have three children and live in La Mirada, CA.
