About Our Pastor...

Pastor Melvin Johnson II

Pastor Melvin W. Johnson II was born and raised in Inglewood, California. When he was 7 years old, his father the late Dr. Melvin W. Johnson Sr. opened grounds to spiritual beginnings for him and his family and in July 1974 the doors were opened to the Church of the Living God, PGT in Inglewood, California.

Pastor Melvin Johnson worked within the music ministry of his father’s church for over 25 years and held many prestigious leadership positions within the youth and teen department. He has always been intrigued
by the word of God and loved a spiritual challenge whenever possible.

Pastor Melvin Johnson was taught and educated under his father’s leadership and in July 1995 God called him to preach his uncompromised word. After a year of official training, Pastor Melvin Johnson was licensed and ordained in July 1996.   

After the death of his father in November 2000, the church voted and decreed Pastor Melvin Johnson as the next pastor of his father’s church where he pastored for over 4 years. He loved ministering to God’s people in the city of Inglewood but God had another plan for his life and ministry. 

In July 2002 he and his family packed up and moved to Katy, Texas not knowing a single soul, BUT GOD.

On September 3, 2006 the doors of God’s Temple of Praise Community Church were opened where he serves as the Senior Pastor. To God be the Glory for all he has done!
