Alonzo Johnson is the Presbyterian Mission Agency Coordinator for the Self Development of People. A minister and educator ordained in the Presbyterian Church USA, with over 20 years’ experience working in congregational, urban ministry, youth ministry and academic settings. He is skilled in research, teaching, written and oral communication. In him you will discover a strong interest in existential, Neo-Orthodox, liberation, and postmodern theologies, Christian education and pastoral care. Creating, designing, planning and implementing workshops and events centered around spirituality, education, leadership development, sociocultural issues and pastoral care make him a key source for constructing the tents, big and small, to fulfill the Big Mission. His passion for creating, engaging and challenging arts-education ministries for youth and adults makes him an engaging presenter and facilitator.

The Association of Smaller Congregations (ASC) was organized in 1987 to serve congregations in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina having fewer than 200 members.  The group seeks in their conferences to lift up these smaller congregations, offering tools and support, promoting their unique strengths and needs, and providing opportunities for fellowship, education, creative thinking and sharing.  For more information and registration find us online and join the conversation on Facebook.
