Carnell Johnson Jr. (or "CJ", as he affectionately known), is a true testament to the power of GOD. As a young man, despite being brought up in a Christian home, CJ turned to the street-life of violence and drug dealing. However, following a series of life changing events, GOD turned his life around and set him on a path that would lead him to become the special minister and motivator for which he is known as today. CJ is regarded through out his community, as a passionate, fun loving, GOD fearing man who loves to motivate people for the better. But arguably, what he is best known for is being the friend and husband to his wife of 19 years, Natasha Johnson. Rarely seen without each other, their life is a true partnership. In business, they own and operate Right Touch Elite Car Care and Radiant Reflections Hair Salon. In Ministry, they serve side by side leading the Pre-Teen ministry at their church under the leadership of Drs Herbert and Marcia Bailey at Right Direction Christian Church International. But their most important partnership and the one that brings the most joy, is their partnership in parenting their two beautiful teenage daughters, Megan and Destiny. Husband, Father, Minister, Mentor, Entrepreneur and Friend are all words that adequately describes Carnell Johnson Jr.
