FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN:

 

ELDER GEORGE JOHNSON 

SUBMITTED IN LOVE BY HIS SISTER, LINDA DENTON:Elder George Holton Johnson was born January 27, 1945 inLubbock, Texas. His parents were Fay Isom and Ollie FayeHolton Johnson. He was the youngest of four children. At agenine, George joined the Lubbock Church and was baptized byElder Willie Fox. He was married to Jamie Jones on Aug. 30, 1963 in Idalou,Texas by Elder E.J. Norman. He and Jamie had four children: two sons-Wade and Rex, and two daughters-Shelley and Amy. George was a farmer. He served his Idalou Community as a Board Member and President of the Coop Gin; the School Board; and the Stock Show.

 

George was ordained as a Deacon in 1972 and as a Minister on May 19, 1979 in the Lubbock Church. He has served as Pastor of the Lubbock, Crosbyton, and Muleshoe Churches.

 

One of the greatest influences in his life was his maternal Grandfather, Homer Holton, a deacon in the Wellington Church. George has a special gift to minister to young people and to those who have problems, especially those who have lost loved ones.

THE FOLLOWING IMFORMATION IS FROM THE PUBLICATION, ‘BANNER OF LOVE’, VOLUME 77-NUMBER 5, MAY 2009, LUBBUCK, TEXAS:

Funeral services for Elder George Holton Johnson, 64, pastor for the past 25 years of the Lubbock Primitive Baptist Church, of Lubbock, Texas, were held on Saturday, April 25, 2009 at the Lubbock church.

Officiating was Elder Steven Bloyd, formerly of Lubbock, and currently pastor of the Mt. Carmel Primitive Baptist Church, Bel Air, Maryland.

The entirety of the  church building was overflowing for the funeral. The church had additional chairs set up in the dinning area and church foyer as more than 700 attended his funeral service, including family, church members, friends, and visitors from across the state. Also in attendance were 30 Primitive Baptist ministers from across the state, including four from out of state. A number of attendees stood outside, listening to the service over speakers.

The Funeral services was followed by a brief service at the grave site, attended by approximately 250 people.

Elder Johnson’s first love was the lord and being a pastor. He knew the true meaning of being a Pastor and not just a preacher. He had a deep love for his family and instilled in them his love and work ethic. He farmed in the Idalou community for 46 years with the help of his wife and children.

Elder Johnson steadfastly refused to take personal credit for the growth in the Lubbock church while he served as pastor, always rebuking such suggestions and insisting the church was the Lord’s church and all the glory was due the Lord.

He was well know and loved for his pastoral and shepherd duties, always sacrificing his own personal needs and health for the welfare of the flock of church members, as well as innumerable individuals in the Lubbock community and across West Texas. He was known for the numerous times in the middle of the night that he left the warm confines of his home and went out into the storms of the world to provide care and comfort for that one lost lamb that needed his help (Luke 15:4-7).
