About Pastor


Called to minister to God's people, anointed to preach God's Word, and fully under God's control, Reverend Kim Johnson is a woman who is dedicated and determined to fulfill the will of God in her life. Although she received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1987, her journey in the Gospel ministry began in the 1990’s, when she delivered her trial sermon at the Pentecostal Deliverance Church of Christ, Inc., under the leadership of the late Reverend Robert Covington.  Consequently, she was officially licensed to preach  and minister the Word of the Lord, shortly thereafter.


Reverend Johnson’s true gift of preaching presents many opportunities for her to serve in the Tri-State area and beyond.  Reverend Johnson gained immeasurable experience during her professional tenure career in childcare management. Both her spiritual calling and her profession allowed her to come in contact with a diverse group of people in a variety of ways, and she utilized her gifts by being a great source of encouragement, support and wise counsel.

She accepted the Call to Shepherd the Pentecostal Deliverance Church, Inc., and was installed as Pastor on Saturday, January 15, 2011.  It was a glorious celebration and worship service that generously demonstrated love and abundantly honored God.
  Pastor Johnson articulates the Word of God with power and authority.  Her animated, yet intense preaching style captivates the listener, encourages the downhearted and lifts the weary.  Her visionary pastoral leadership is firmly focused on biblical principles and a solid biblical foundation.  She continuously strives for the heart of God.  She has a wonderful sense of humor and a love for people that makes the Word that God delivers through her, both practical and life changing.

Kim Covington-Johnson
is proud to be the fourth child of our late founder, Pastor, Reverend Robert and Mother Sylvia Covington.  She is the recipient of an Associate of Applied Science Degree from the Borough of Manhattan Community College, Bachelor of Arts Degree from The College of New Rochelle and she is a 2-time graduate of Iona College in New Rochelle, New York, with a Master of Science in Teaching and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy.   Although she has previous taught in both the public and parochial school systems, as well as at the collegiate level, she has also served in managerial capacities within Corporate Childcare overseeing multiple childcare centers in Fairfield County, Connecticut.  Currently, she remains an approved Education Consultant in the state of Connecticut and a Marriage and Family Therapist.

Although Reverend Johnson enjoys the office of Pastor, she also takes pleasure in her ministry of matrimony and motherhood.  She is the wife to Deacon Anthony Johnson and the mother of two sons.   While she endeavors to encompass every facet of the bible in her life, one of her favorite scriptures can be found in 1 Corinthians 9:16, which states, For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

Pastor Kim Johnson is greatly venerated for her commitment to the furtherance of Kingdom Work.
