Anna was a native of West Plains, Missouri. She also graduated from the same Bible College in Pennsylvania, and then proceeded to attain her Bachelors in Christian Education and Bachelors in Christian Literature from Ozark Bible Institute and College in Neosho, Missouri.

Anna was a tremendous Pastor’s wife, Evangelist’s wife, Missionary’s wife and the best mother a daughter could have. Heaven gained a precious soul. She is dearly missed.

They were married June 11th, 1988 and immediately entered the field of Evangelism for the next 6 years, traveling through the summers and working in Christian Schools and Youth Pastors during the school year. In 1993, they accepted the call to a Pastorate in El Mirage, AZ where they pastored their first church for 8 years. They also pioneered an A.C.E. Christian School. Leaving Arizona, they found themselves in 1 year of Evangelism before accepting the pastorate  in Kansas City, Kansas where they ministered for 6 years. In 2008, they felt God’s direction to return to Anna’s home town, West Plains, and assist in their home Church, Calvary Pentecostal Tabernacle, while transitioning into full time Missionary Evangelism. During that time, they have made several Missionary trips into Canada as well as Evangelized all through the States preaching Revivals, Youth Camps, conducting Kid’s Crusades and Children’s Ministry Workshops. Since Anna’s passing in December of 2023, David and his daughter, Courtney, are now full time Missionaries in Canada.

Courtney Anne Johnston

Courtney JohnstonCourtney was born July 9th, 1994 in Arizona where David and Anna were in their first year of Pastorate. Courtney was truly a miracle baby as physicians had informed the Johnston’s that they would not be able to have children on their own. We’re so glad that THE GREAT PHYSICIAN knows better!

Courtney attended four years at Ozark Bible Institute and College in Neosho, Missouri and graduated in May 2016. She returned to Neosho in September of 2018 and taught for two years at Ozark Christian Academy.

Courtney is a full time Missionary with her Dad in Canada. She also is the Marketing Director for her Dad’s website design business. If you have any questions regarding websites and/or marketing, feel free to contact her.

God has blessed Courtney with a wonderful talent for writing songs as well as a beautiful voice with which to sing them for the Lord. She also loves playing drums and piano. Courtney has helped her parents for many years in Kids Crusades and is an effective Children’s Minister, and tremendous speaker. She has spoken at several Ladies Conferences.
