From Our Pastor


I’m glad you’re here! My name is Raymond Johnson and I have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor of Christ Church West Chester. I was born in Louisiana, raised in Alabama, and educated in Mississippi. In 2007 I moved to Louisville, KY to attend the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary before my family and I came here in 2015 to serve at this church. My wife Meghan and I have 5 kids and live in downtown West Chester.

As you look around our website, you will find that our church strives for a decidedly theological ministry that fosters congregational participation. The local church is the outpost of Heaven here on earth and our desire for this church is to reflect that reality in the way that we grow in our knowledge of God, love for others, and service to our community.

If you do gather with us on a Sunday morning, I’d love to meet you, so feel free to introduce yourself because I realize that whether you’ve grown up in the church or have no religious background at all, attending a new church can be daunting. At CCWC we’re a community of broken people who understand that our only hope in life and death is the Lord Jesus Christ. It would be my joy to warmly welcome you and point you to that same hope.
