Grace Upon Grace Conference
Grace Upon Grace with grace pastors Jeremiah Johnson and Chris Barhorst. Below is a bio about each of these amazing speakers.
Jeremiah spent the first 19 years of his life as a drug addict, alcoholic, atheist, until a radical encounter with Jesus set him free, enjoying the beauty and freedom that a relationship with Jesus provides.He was then ushered into 14 years of legalistic Christianity that proved to be an even greater bondage than the drug addiction and alcoholism. Jeremiah then encountered the true gospel of grace which returned him back to his first love; Jesus!Now he enjoys the true freedom that amazing grace provides. With 15 years of full time ministry behind him, Jeremiah is in full stride to share the good news of Jesus and his unfailing love. Jeremiah is the senior pastor at Grace Point church in Georgetown, Kentucky, an author, and also has an active traveling ministry.
