Pastors Lonnie & Tammie Johns

Founding & Lead Pastors

Pastor Lonnie Johns has been in ministry for 25+ years and currently serves as the Lead Pastor of Christ Central, located in Lake City, Florida. 


Through his leadership, Christ Central has grown since it’s inception to a body of over 2000 members with an over 70,000 square feet of ministry space sitting on a beautiful 50-acre campus. Christ Central’s campus not only includes an 825 seat sanctuary, but also a coffee bar, a children’s sanctuary, a separate youth sanctuary/facility and a newly added 100 seat multipurpose sanctuary. 


Pastor Lonnie is passionate about developing the next generation of kingdom leaders which is why he created the “Young Bloods/ Core Leadership” program, a two-year training program designed to shape and mold the next generation of church leaders. 


However, Pastor Lonnie’s involvement in kingdom building doesn’t stop there. He is the founder (President-CEO) of Still Waters West, a 72 bed Assisted Living facility for the elderly located in Lake City, Florida and is also the President-CEO of Partners of Hope International, which does medical missions and leadership training in over 40 countries. It is worth noting that under the direction of Pastor Lonnie, Partners of Hope International is currently in the process of building a 70 bed recovery home for the homeless in Lake City Fl. 


Along with founding Christ Central Lake City, Pastor Lonnie also serves as the Lead Pastor in a fellowship of 14 churches Christ Central assisted with planting in the Southeast and he also serves on the Apostolic oversight board for Destiny Network International and numerous other churches.


When he isn’t busy building the kingdom, Pastor Lonnie enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time with his wife Tammie who he has been happily married to his for 32 amazing years. They have four children (Casey, Angel, Tre’, and Shaina) and nine beautiful grandchildren.
