Synopsis

Popularly known as the “Village Pastor”, the author shares his memoirs of travels around the world from the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He has been welcomed by Pygmies in Equatorial Africa; preaching to those who have never heard the name of Jesus and baptizing hundreds of converts in the River Congo. Rev Johnson has lived in thatched-roof mud huts and found snakes coiled up in his bed. He has traveled by donkeys; in sail boats guided by the stars and the moon of the Caribbean night; and driven across wooden bridges repaired by his own hands. He has planted olive trees on the slopes of Mt. Olive in Palestine as the region searches for peace and justice; and he has had his cars stolen by day and been robbed at gunpoint at night. In his memoirs, the author discusses Interfaith Relationship, Racial Diversity, Immigration Issues and African Culture and Spirituality. The author shares his involvement with the Jamaica Baptist Missionary Society and pastoral challenges in the inner-city of Newark, New Jersey, USA … as he served as “Christ’s Ambassador to the Global Village”. Alfred B. Johnson author, lecturer and missionary pastor was ordained by the Baptist church in Jamaica, WI. He gained his undergraduate degree from London University, England, a Master’s in New Testament Studies from Union Seminary, New York and a Doctor of Ministry from Drew University, New Jersey. Additionally, he earned a Diploma in French from the Alliance Francaise in Belgium. Prior to his retirement in 2010, Rev. Johnson served for 21 years as pastor of Clinton Avenue Presbyterian Church, in Newark, New Jersey and was the first Jamaican to be elected as moderator of a regional presbytery in the over two-hundred-year history of the Presbyterian Church, USA.
