Keys4-Life was conceptualized at Wooddale Church, MN with an amazing group of people.  Because of their encouragement we kept going.  We are faith based Christian Counseling and Life Coaching ministry.


Jim & Cheryl Johnson

Paul wrote:  “I am under obligation to preach the gospel…”  2 Cor 9.16.  I have no other way to describe the purpose behind our ministry.  I worked in management and in claims successfully becoming well recognized, but simply could not run from a God who called me to give my life to serve others.  So “I became obedient to the vision…” and find my greatest joy bring healing and restoration to individuals and couples.

 “You shall love God with all your heart mind and strength, and others as yourself.”  That has been my commitment to Christ for my life and I simply assist in anyway I can to share Jesus with others and help them with their needs.

About us:


Cheryl and I made a conscious decision to dedicate our lives to follow Jesus Christ and His Plan for us.  That meant giving up our careers and retirement to serve individuals and couples thru faith based counseling,

coaching and group seminars.
