Bishop Johnson, founder of Rush Crusades International and pastor of Jita Church in Harbor City, organized the gathering to “motivate the church to return to its roots of praise, worship and the non-compromising message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” His goal is to spur church growth and church relevancy among all generations.

“This event is open to the public to help people live a more victorious Christian life,” said Johnson. “We are focused on reaching troubled youth, sharing better financial strategies, overcoming depression, aiding others in finding their purpose. We will also outline how using social media tools
can revive church growth and recover the lost and backslidden to Christ.”


Also, Johnson will share his decades-long experiences as a ministry leader, author, Christian broadcaster and co-founder of the Todd Bridges Youth Foundation. His friendship with the actor led to Bridges’ rehabilitation and rediscovery of his faith foundation.

Sapp, a multiple award-winning recording artist, has excelled during his 30+-years musical career. The pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he also oversees more than 100 churches as a bishop with Global United Fellowship.

Kelley is the spiritual head of Re-Charge Church in Lancaster, California. A veteran and recent graduate of the University of Nevada, Johnson described Kelley as a young and “very powerful pastor, teacher and prophetic seer. He really hears from God and is very accurate in interpreting people’s issues with answers as God reveals them.”

Caraby gained renown as an original member of the rap group, NWA. After leaving the entertainment industry, he began producing porn films, then his fortunes plummeted. Caraby met Johnson through a sick friend, which led to his conversion and baptism. Currently serving as a deacon at Jita Church, he also appears at Rush Crusades’ events to share his testimony.

Pre-registration for the program is $30 and the donation is $70 at the door. To pre-register or obtain information, call (310) 637-7086 or visit
