This ministry was founded in the mid 60's by the late Pastor Arling M. Alexander. Today, it is pastured by Bishop Rickey Johnson.
Pastor Johnson believes that his contribution to a successful family stems from the training he received from his late father, a thirty-one year US Navy veteran, and mother that instilled in him principles of integrity and compassion.
Both parents had a heart for the broken and those that just needed a place to live. This same love for people was placed in his heart and he brings this same love for people to the Shield of Faith Pasadena congregation.
Pastor Johnson is a man that overcome homelessness and was given a second chance to live, but this time for God. As a result, he is a man that is driven to reach the broken, unchurch, dechurch, etc., in the community.
His ministry training began under the august leadership of Apostle Henry B. Alexander. As his father in the gospel, Apostle Alexander took Brother Rickey Johnson, at the time under his wings and trained him for ten years before the Lord commissioned him to become the lead pastor at the Pasadena church.
After many years of service, Pastor Johnson was consecrated in the office of Bishop under the Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches International, some 1,200 churches world-wide.
