My wife and I have been supporters of Layman Lesson's both through financial donations as well as volunteering our time since 2006. Louie Johnston and the army of Layman Lessons volunteers work tirelessly on behalf of the homeless and those less fortunate. Whether it is a desperate plea for shelter, organizing food donations, or providing skills necessary to find a job, Louie Johnston is ALWAYS willing to assist. I wholeheartedly endorse the work of Layman Lessons and in particular the servant leadership of Louie Johnston.

Layman Lessons, Inc. is led by one of the most in-tune, in-touch and informed individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Louie Johnston's personal crusade has evolved into a thriving outreach which ministers to Music City's homeless in a myriad of pivotal ways. Through Layman Lessons and Louie's many friends and crucial sponsors, 100s of the streets' homeless and hopeless have been clothed, fed hot meals and received much-needed encouragement and Christian counsel. The homeless who are touched by the Layman Lessons experience, consistently witness, and have the opportunity to receive, the love of Jesus Christ through Louie and the many mentors, volunteers and donors who ensure Layman Lessons' Saturday services are a weekly reality.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many positive and life-changing testimonies of the homeless who've benefited from the mission and ministry of Layman Lessons.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage others to become involved in making a marked difference in the lives of those who crave encouragement, opportunity and the love of Jesus Christ.

I am a donor as well as I have been a volunteer with Layman Lessons, Inc. As a volunteer I worked with Louie Johnston on Saturday's as his group ministered to the homeless or street people. They were fed, clothed and ministered to no matter what their circumstances with no questions asked and nothing required except to be respectful of those around them during the service. Louie has a passion for the work and a love for his fellow man as he serves with tireless energy everyday to make their life a little better than he found it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By being a witness to changes being made in people's lives as they attend the services and recieve the love and concern from fellow Christians.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grant Louie more hours in the day to get everything done that he wants to get done.
