ABOUT LAYMAN LESSONS: This
was formed as a Tennessee Non Profit Corporation in 2003 as an approved
IRS 501c3 Religious and Charitable Organization. This organization,
which began in 2000, founded by current “servant director” volunteer
minister Louie Johnston Jr., has spent the last 15 years trying to fight
the hunger problem here in America. When others turn away from the
issue, Layman Lessons goes above and beyond to help those in need. In
2015, Layman Lessons provided food for one million meals to America’s
needy and homeless. Within the first two months into 2016, they have
supplied food for 350,000 meals for those in need. They also provided
10,000 bottled water canteens during the hot summer days and 1,500
survival rescue blankets to the homeless during freezing temperatures.
The organization is able to serve over 24,000 in Middle Tennessee alone
and the number goes well beyond that across the nation. Layman Lessons
has partnered with Ken Jakes Produce, The Salvation Army, Feed America
First, One Warm Coat, OneGenAway, and the 700 Club Operation Blessing.
