About Dr. Britni
The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life (John 6:63).
A native of Chester, PA, Rev. Dr. Britni Michelle Johnson now makes her home in a quiet suburban town in Anne Arundel County, MD. She is the daughter of Anita and Inocencio Amaro, Sr., who directed her Christian upbringing. Her gifts for ministry were first recognized in the United Methodist Church when she began serving as a layperson under the leadership of Reverend Herbert Coe, Sr. at St. Daniel’s United Methodist Church, in Chester, PA. In 2009, she relocated to Washington, DC where Reverend Khalfani B. Drummer acknowledged her call to ministry. She was licensed to preach in October 2013 and later ordained to the Gospel Ministry in September 2018 at the Gethsemane Baptist Church, in Washington, DC. Currently, Dr. Johnson ministers at Victory Grace Center under Dr. Jasmin "Jazz" Sculark where she oversees their discipleship ministries. In September 2019, she established the Being & Becoming Spiritual Retreat Center, an online sacred space where she provides growth workshops, social and biblical studies, and custom conferences to reach the real and relevant needs of people.
In May 2008, Dr. Johnson graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science degree and was recognized as a member of the National Political Science Honor Society. Passionate about her ministry preparation, she attended the John Leland Center for Theological Studies where she earned a Masters of Christian Leadership in June 2018. In June 2019, Villanova University awarded her a Certificate in Church Management. On March 6, 2023, she successfully defended her doctoral thesis on Church Leadership in the Digital Age: Cultivating Community and Spiritual Growth Online and the degree of Doctor of Educational Ministry was conferred upon her by the Virginia Theological Seminary in May 2023.
Dr. Johnson has a fervent heart to serve the Church, her community, and her country. For the past 14 years, she has worked for government agencies safeguarding national intelligence information systems and data. Whatever she puts her hands to, she aims to maintain the moto of what was spoken by Paul to the Church in Colossae: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23-24).
