Fitzgerald Johnson, or better known as “Fitz”, was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated from Germantown High School in 1982. He was an intricate part of the Fellowship Tabernacle Church for approximately 17 years in which during this time he acknowledged a call to the Gospel ministry. In September of 1990, Pennsylvania’s Jurisdictional Bishop of the Churches of God in Christ, Bishop O.T. Jones, Jr, ordained Fitzgerald. He later served as the Youth Pastor of the New Beginnings Worship Center, Pennsauken, New Jersey.
In 1998, Fitzgerald was asked if he would consider taking the leadership of the Evangelical Fellowship Baptist Church, which was founded by his grandfather, the late Rev. Christopher C. Sharpe in 1967. It was a challenge that Fitzgerald viewed as the will of God, and eagerly accepted. In December of 1998, Fitzgerald was appointed as Pastor and later in 2001 Evangelical Fellowship Baptist Church became “Transformation Christian Assembly, Inc.”, which he based upon Romans 12:2.
After a brief visit to the Valley of the Sun, he felt led to come to the Phoenix area and in 2004 began laying the foundation for a new ministry. He began the “Transforming Truth Community Bible Study” in Maricopa. He also founded and hosted the “Voice of One” radio broadcast on KXXT in Phoenix for 2 years.
Pastor Fitzgerald’s prime objective is to share and defend the whole truth of Basic Christian Doctrine and teach others to do the same. Always teaching that transformation happens from the inside out. He strongly believes that you will never change the way you act until you change the way you think. As Jesus often did, Fitzgerald also believes in reaching souls right where they are and not necessarily trying to usher them into a building. Fitzgerald envisions a network of self-governing small groups knit together with the same core focus. This is the focus of “Hybrid Christian Ministries”. Fitzgerald is an ardent student and preacher of God’s Holy Word. He loves to study Bible doctrine and theology, a fact that is attested to by his extensive library of books at home as well as his current enrollment in a degree program at Andersonville Theological Seminary.
Fitzgerald is married to his lovely wife Kendra, also a native of “Philly” and has 3 children.
