Rev. Erinna McKissick-Johnson is a Saginaw native and a product of Saginaw public schools who preached her first public sermon when she was 11-years-old. She later became a licensed minister in 2005, an ordained minister in 2007, and an ordained youth pastor in 2009. She graduated magna cum laude from Howard University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism among the top 15% of her class. In May of 2014, she graduated magna cum laude from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI with a Masters of Arts in Ministry Leadership. With over 11 years of full-time ministry experience, she has been blessed to preach and teach in numerous cities and states across the country.
Prior to joining the administrative staff at Victorious Believers Ministries, Rev. Johnson served for several years as a former youth pastor and college campus Chaplain. Rev. Johnson is a business owner, accomplished poet, playwright, freelance writer, and is in the process of writing her first book. Her favorite scripture and life’s inspiration is Jeremiah 29:11. A true psalmist at heart she enjoys composing impromptu songs about mundane things. She relishes tranquility and is known amongst her family as a “master nap-taker,” which is most noticeable on car rides of longer than 30 min during which she always dozes off. Though God has favored her to accomplish many things over her short life time, Rev. Johnson says that her greatest achievement and ministry has been her unwavering commitment to her family life and being the mother of two amazing children, Mayah Grayce and Joshua Earl.
