Our Story

How it all started...

It was July of 2007 when God first gave Bishop Christopher A. Johnson, Sr. the desire to plant a ministry in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Bishop Johnson had always envisioned a ministry that would operate in the flow and the anointing of the early church at Antioch revealed in the book of Acts chapter 11. This church would be a diverse, liberal and energetic church where people could worship and be led by the Holy Spirit regardless of their denominational upbringing, culture or race. Bishop Johnson, who had been in ministry for six years and pastoring for three, believed the Lord for this vision, so he held a meeting at a local restaurant. Approximately 30 people who believed in the vision and felt the anointing of the man of God to be their shepherd, showed up, prayed and believed that this would be a reality. They were ready to partner with Bishop Johnson and Lady Toya Johnson in this effort. After the plan had been communicated and prayer had been rendered, Zion Christian Ministries held its first service on August 5, 2007 In the KUC Theater on MTSU campus. On that day, Zion added 82 to its membership. After one month, Zion made yet another leap of faith and began holding services in the chapel of Hellum Funeral Home at 611 South Highland Avenue in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Expanding the vision...

In 2014 Zion Christian Ministries purchased our current campus that sits on 11 acres of land and a 6600 square foot facility. The address to this location is 4750 John Bragg Highway, Murfreesboro, TN.

401k Building Construction...

In 2019 we will begin the construction of our 401k building. This is the name of our "youth" ministry. This building will be a 4200 square foot building equipped with 6 classrooms and 162 seat multipurpose area.
