Australian National Leader

National Leader and Chairman Australasia

Johnny Scroggins

Johnny comes into the role of National Leader and Chairman for MFI-Australasia, with over 49 years of ministry experience.  A native of the USA, Johnny came to Australia with his very young family in the early 80s, responding to a need within the organisation he was working with at the time, to oversee, plant local churches and develop leadership.  He is married to Clara, and they both are presently the Senior Pastors of Victory Christian Church, which they planted in 1992, located in the Southwest part of Sydney 

Called to preach at the age of 15, there was nothing else he ever wanted to do, but prepare himself to serve God’s purpose.  After High School, he attended Bible College, and then went on to finish his studies at Louisiana State University.    Johnny has been pastoring local churches for 46 years, both in the USA and Australia.   He has been influential in birthing and supporting the ministry of many young pastors and ministers through the years.  With a very evident pastoral gifting and his infectious encouragement, he demonstrates a father’s heart to those around him.  His passion is to see ministries and churches flourish and grow into their God given gifts and callings.   He is an outstanding teacher and preacher of the Word, an avid reader and a student of the Bible.  

Johnny and Clara have been married almost 50 years, and have three daughters, three sons-in-law, and nine grandchildren.  They are in their happy place when all the family comes together for meals or a family get together.
