Having been in Church ministry well over two decades, having built various ministries, within as well as outside the local Church, having planted & led a Church for 11 years, as well as traveled the globe building, encouraging & loving the larger Church, she is in a new season. Focused on Leadership, Mental Health & the training and planting of new Churches, rather than build the ministry of Wimber, Christy is focused on how to best serve the Church at large. Her main ministry has always been her children, Camie Rose, who is now married to Hobie Johnson, and John Richard II who is still in High School.
Its no secret, the Church is shifting yet again. What was available 20 years ago in the area of ministry, Church planting or other ways to connect within serving the local Church has grown exponentially. Christy travels around the world and loves encouraging leaders. Whether it be within the walls of the Church or ways of connecting the community with the Church, her desire is to be a bridge in connecting & building the Church globally. From doing small leadership gatherings or investing in leadership in various Movements, her desire is to be an encouragement. No matter the platform her hope and goal is to equip, encourage and build into the local Church.

New Book: Wholeness
Coming in April 2019. Along with Katharine Welby-Roberts. Taking a new look at what healing means with acknowledgement we are body, soul and spirit. This is a very personal book where Christy shares personally about her own struggles, but also addressing belief systems about healing, including the challenge to the Church to become places of safety where wholeness can take place.
It's no secret the world is seeking leadership & its needed more than ever. In order for the Church to be effective, we must be present. This is not about conquering or taking over cities and organizations, but learning how to serve effectively. Whether male or female, the Church needs people willing to lay down their lives for the sake of the Kingdom. This section will feature interviews, clips & articles encouraging all of us to grow in the area of leadership.
1 in 4. Thats the statistic with those struggling with mental health. With all thats happening around the world, this is growing. How do we bring healing & wholeness to the world around us? Christy has shared that she believes that if the Church forsakes the opportunity to get equipped in the area of mental health, learning new prayer models, we will be ineffective or sadly continue to damage in various ways. The world is groaning & with more & more tragic events, the aftermath where mental health is affected will become greater. Getting equipped is the first step to getting involved.
Christy's love for the whole Church takes her around the world serving in several different Denominations, Movements with friends around the world. There are so many Church planting movements who are building into future generations. Find out more of what's happening around the world. If you have desire to plant a Church, send us a note & stay connected. We'll be offering some forums & interactions with those who want to plant, with who have more experience in planting. The world is getting smaller & Church Planting is ever changing. Be encouraged as there are incredible places who are in need of those willing to serve!

Nothing is more important than hearing from people who have struggled, are struggling or who are caring for someone with mental health. Mental Illness is a major aspect of culture and we need to hear from experts, as well as people who have experience on how to engage.
