“I would like to express my heartfelt condolences about the passing of Reverend Dr. Michael J. Johnson, pastor of the Sixth Avenue Baptist Church since 1988,” District 3 Commissioner Lumon May said.
“In addition to being a leader in our community who loved his family and his church family, his daughter, Mischel, is interning with the county. She was instrumental in the county’s Mask Up, Escambia public health campaign, and her talent helped get very important messaging to our community during COVID-19.
“Reverend Johnson made a tremendous impact on our community, and he will be greatly missed. God Bless his family and church community during this difficult time.”
