What’s Included: 

Arjay Johnson

Arjay pastors a church called Limitless Church in Ankeny, Iowa. Limitless Church Launched on Sept. 18th 2022.  In 2009 God put the word GROW on Arjay’s heart. With it came a mission to Go Reach Our World (G.R.O.W.). From that moment, 2 Timothy 2:10 became a verse that became an anchor for his ministry. Arjay and his wife Kayla (along with their 5 young children) recently moved to Ankeny, IA to plant a church.  Ankeny is the 2nd fastest growing city in Iowa, and is full of young families and married couples that they feel called to reach.  Their desire is to help people Grow in God, Grow in Community, and Grow in Purpose.  They believe if people keep growing in these 3 areas, that the natural outcome will be a life that can’t help but Go Reach Our World with the hope of Jesus.
