First Lady Tara Johnson
Mrs. Tara Johnson, the esteemed wife and helpmate of Pastor Antonio D. Johnson, Sr., is a native of Kannapolis, NC. Tara, a very down to earth and balanced woman of God, is a true servant of God in every way. She has been a member of Bethel Baptist Church Ministries since the age 10, where she has served in many ministries. A talented and gifted singer, Tara has been a part of the Little Wonders Choir, the Young Adult Choir, the Mass Choir, the Praise and Worship Team, the Audio/Video Ministry, Women of Virtue Ministry, Ushers Ministry, and the Drama and Praise Dance Ministries. With God as the head of their life, her first ministry has always been to her husband, Pastor Johnson, and their family, serving by his side and supporting him each day as God uses him to lead souls to Christ and teach the Word of God.
On a day to day basis, Tara enjoys serving as a helpmate to her husband's vision of the ministry. Their goal is to continue to strive to please God and do His will. A Licensed Cosmetologist since 2001, Tara is well-known throughout the area for her gifted hands as a stylist. Many come to her because of her sincere genuineness and warm, Christian spirit. She has a heart for young girls and the elderly and enjoys talking to young ladies and sharing the wisdom passed down from the elders. Young girls and teens come to her and spend hours sharing things about their lives for her guidance and suggestions. Tara’s role as a mentor spans throughout her community to many children and young adults.
Tara has had constant involvement with Department of Social Service assisting with foster kids and hair cares services and classes, and she enjoys being an outreach ambassador to help children who are placed in this kind of care. A 1991 graduate of A.L .Brown High School, Tara loves watching the Wonders in sports action where each of their children, Antonio, Jr., (T.J.), LaCree, and Keeon, were all outstanding student athletes and also graduates. If you ask Tara who she is in her own words, you will get a humble response such as “my role is like none other; I am unique because I don’t sit to be waited on, but always willing to serve wherever there is a need.”
Those words describe her greatly because Tara has a very giving nature. She never sits back to see what others will do, but rather jumps right in to help and do things herself to get it done efficiently and with decency and order. Proverbs 31:10 states, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” This scripture perfectly describes First Lady Tara Johnson as she has a heart dedicated to God and serving His people.
