Pastor Garrett Johnston was born in Newtown, CT and raised in Westbrook, Maine where he graduated as valedictorian from Grace Baptist Christian Academy. He went to Liberty University intending to pursue a career in Business. It was at LU that Pastor Garrett felt the Lord calling him to full time ministry. After finishing the year at LU, Pastor Garrett transferred to Baptist Bible East and graduated in 1989.
He married DeAnna Bimpson in 1987, and a month later God led them to accept the Youth Pastor / Associate Pastor Position at First Baptist Church in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts After 24 years of ministry at First Baptist Church, and with much prayer and the Lords leading, Garrett and His family have made the transition to LBC in April of 2011.
We praise the Lord for leading him and his family to our church!
