Our culture has taken a profound turn. Activists are chipping away at our country's foundation for faith and freedom. It's evident anytime you watch the news or read the latest headlines. You may even see it in your own community. But, you don't have to sit on the sidelines and allow this to happen. You can help defend faith and freedom by joining an active network of ADF volunteers.

An Ambassador is a special envoy on a heavenly mission to keep the doors open for the spread of the Gospel.

He developed and managed DEA's first Forensic Multimedia Lab, which involved the analysis, enhancement, authentication, and voice analysis of surveillance evidence. After retiring, Johnson worked for the Houston Forensic Science Center, managing its digital and multimedia lab, which entailed oversight of personnel, budget, and operations of the digital and multimedia groups.
