About The Speaker - Johnny Shirey

Johnny Shirey is a native of Linden Pennsylvania, who loves the Lord, his family, and the church, His hobbies (obsessions?) include hunting, fishing, and blacksmithing. Johnny is married to the love of his life, Janette, and together they have four children, Corban (17), Caden (15), Caleb (11), and Eden (9).

He grew up in a Christian home, and during his childhood, his family were members of the Lycoming Christian Church. In the summers Johnny attended church camp at Sylvan Hills, and it was there at the age of 17 that he came to truly understand his need for Jesus Christ as Savior.

During his teenage years, Johnny took several mission trips through “Adventures In Missions or A.I.M.” to Mexico, Russia & Poland. After his graduation from Williamsport Area High School in 1992 he joined the staff of “A.I.M.” working to promote that ministry, and going on several more missions projects to Jamacia, and again to Mexico.

After his time with Adventures In Missions, Johnny joined the United States Marine Corps in December of 1994 and served as a Machine Gunner in an infantry unit until 1997. During his time in the Marine Corps Johnny’s relationship with the Lord was at best distant, and at worst non-existent. “I made a lot of bad choices and did a lot of damage to myself and others during that period of my life,” he says.

After the Marine Corps Johnny trained and worked as a welder, employed at High Steel Industries in Williamsport. It was in that time of his life while facing a period of personal and emotional crisis that Johnny repented and turned his life back to the Lord, committing to faithfully follow Christ for the rest of His life.

Because of his time of backsliding and through experiencing God’s amazing grace, healing, and restoration, Johnny eventually felt the Lord’s calling to enter the ministry, determined to spend his life sharing with others the grace and healing he had received from the Lord himself. So, in the fall semester of 1999, he enrolled in Kentucky Christian College and graduated in 2003 with honors, having earned a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and Preaching.

Johnny has served as pastor for three different congregations… four years in the Hillsboro Christian Church in Hillsboro Kentucky, eight years in the First Christian Church of Turtle Creek just east of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and for the last ten years in the Newberry Church of Christ in Williamsport Pennsylvania.
