Empowering and Equipping Minority Missionaries
Support raising is difficult for all missionaries but minority missionaries have their own challenges. Byron Johnson from Vision 9:38 shares about these challenges, how to overcome them, and what churches and organizations can do to support minority missionaries.
Byron Johnson’s roles included campus staff, campus director, area director, and regional director. He is the Founder and Executive Director of VISION 9:38 (2012). For 20 years (1992-2012), He served as a missionary with CO (Campus Outreach). He served in various capacities with CO.
He continues to disciple and mentor young African-American male college students at Morehouse College. His hope and prayer is that God would raise up other African-American missionaries to labor in His harvest.
Byron is married to Kim and they have five children (Kelsey, James Byron II, Kaitlyn, Jordan, and Jonathan). Byron met Kim on a summer mission project hosted by CO while the two of them were in college. They were married in 1993 and currently reside in Atlanta, GA.
