Back in 1973, Pastor K V Johnson decided to start a home bible study for four young people in Yonkers in New York. By 1977, this bible study had grown into an incorporated church in Westchester county, NY.The church moved to its current facility in 2003. The way God moved wonderfully and miraculously to help the church to buy the property and build the current beautiful facility is a testimony to His faithfulness.Pastor K V Johnson went to be with the Lord in 2002. Rev. K.V. Johnson pioneered the Ebenezer Full Gospel Assembly in the year 1973. A man of great vision, Rev. K.V. Johnson led the Church for over three decades. His guidance helped build the Ebenezer Full Gospel Assembly from a small gathering. He was passionate in his commitment to lead people in knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. He went away from all of us to join his Saviour and our God, the Lord Jesus Christ and with all of the saints through the ages.
