Celebration of Life!

Episcopal Pastor and Mrs. John Cheery

At the age of 79, my most influential pastor, John A. Cherry, passed during a routine medical procedure, this month. On yesterday, I joined together with thousands in Suitland, Maryland to attend his funeral. What a joy!

You see, Pastor Cherry was the absolutely best pastor for me during the 1990’s and early 2000’s. His style of teaching God’s Word was very clear, concise, crisp, simple, understandable and easy to digest. He complemented his teaching through his Godly lifestyle. I grew tremendously as a man, husband, father, leader in the workplace at the mid-level and senior-level, leader in the church, including Senior Pastor, an author and a neighbor. I am truly grateful.

I celebrate the life of this man and the church that was built in 1981 with 24 members until 2006 (25 years later) to over 24,000 members. I was member #8313 after joining the church on May 2, 1993.

In many ways, my life mirrors his – thank you Pastor Cherry. I celebrate you!

Walk by Faith – Not by Sight!

Client list continues to grow & expand

Post-retirement is a wonderful time to cherish life’s accomplishments and to begin a phase of sole focus on helping others achieve their dreams. That’s where I am.

You see, I have discovered that our fulfillment in life is a direct link to how much we purposely help and assist others. That’s why I spend my days coaching, mentoring and training others. I can deposit into them what I did right and what I did wrong. It’s my sweet spot.

My pulpit reflects the work that I do in my business and ministry in the USA and abroad. In just one year (February 1, 2018 to February 1, 2019), many doors have been opened for me to utilize my God-given gifts – teaching, administration and leadership – to help churches, corporations, federal government agencies and non-profits, and their front-line, mid-level and senior-level workforce.

I would encourage you keep pressing forward and do not focus on what you “see,” but instead live out your dreams and aspirations that will, in turn, open doors beyond your ability to open for yourself. It’s about others, not ourselves.

Random Acts of Kindness Week

Governor Larry Hogan
Lt Governor Boyd Rutherford

As the new year continues to unfold, our distinguished Governor of the great state of Maryland signed a new Executive order to increase the term limits for his Commission on Suicide Prevention. He recognizes that continuity is needed to effect meaningful change for both victims and perpetrators of this increasingly devastating disease – taking out one’s frustration(s) by ending their life.

I am delighted to appointed to serve on this important Commission – for 4 years. I intend to initiate acts of kindness to demonstrate that God loves everyone and wants the best for everyone regardless of how one may feel about themselves.

As we reflect upon this week, please be kind to one another. You don’t know who really needs it!!

Why We Value Others

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

This week, I/we celebrate one full year of operating The Johnson Leadership Group – an organization that is dedicated to training, coaching and mentoring the current and next generation of leaders.

Good leadership is missing from our society at the present time It doesn’t help the situation by watching the actions and words of the 45th President of the USA. People glean from his lead…not good!

As my organization continues to partner with churches, corporations non-profits and corporations, we are especially careful to instill leadership principles and strategies so that others will grow and live out their dreams. This begins with valuing and caring for others and lifting their confidence in every area of their lives. When we do so, we make this world a much better place.

My challenge for you in 2019 is to value those under your leadership – watch them flourish and excel!
