33 plus years as musicianaries...loving the least through music and the Word of God.
Pastor Jeffry Tunnell from Big Bear City, CA., says, "What a great team Mark & Janalee are. I am a former board member and a co-laborer who has observed this ministry effectively touching a single community, becoming a beacon of hope around the United States, and a ministry that extends into other nations."
Pastor Rob Hastings of Big Bear Christian Center in Big Bear City, CA., says, "I first met Mark & Janalee in Big Bear when they came to our youth group to minister...the year was 1987. After that first encounter, they began to take me into the 'inner-cities' for evangelism and outreach. Since that first encounter with Forerunner Ministries, I have had the privilege and blessing to be able to minister with Mark & Janalee in multiple cities across the United States and later in foreign countries of Norway, Guatemala, and Ukraine. Forerunner Ministries continues to lead God's people in worship, challenge them to be uncomfortable and to take the gospel into the streets, rehabs, foreign countries, and anywhere else that God leads."
Jerry, one of Forerunner's guitar mentors says, "I want to tell you about an evening that changed my life and has been one of the best things I have experienced in a very long time. While I was at Metro Hope Rehab, we had chapel services five nights a week. Before the evangelist scheduled for one particular evening arrived, I must admit I had the attitude 'if you've seen one evangelist, you've seen them all'. That became the furthest thing from the truth. When this evangelist arrived by the name of Mark Johnson, from a ministry called Forerunner Ministries, I immediately thought I recognized him from over 30 years in my past. When he began to play the most spirit filled music and minister the word of God, I knew in my heart that this man was a true man of God. I am presently involved with Forerunner Ministries. Mark has blessed me with the responsibility of helping to teach guitar lessons along with him."
Pastor Rick Del Rio, from Abounding Grace, New York City, says, "We celebrate your faithfulness to the call of God in your life. You and Janalee are a testimony of God's grace and keeping power. Thank you for all the years of investment into our lives and community."
