Using Duck dogs to

Share the Gospel

The Story

Through a chain of events in my life, I surrendered to the ministry and now live the “call” He placed on me. I find myself sharing my faith about the Lord, almost without realizing it. It has become a lifestyle for me to want to show people how to come to know the Lord. I never assume anything about anybody but always believe the best in them. I hope that one day, when they lay me to rest, no one will remember my name — they will just see a man who lived for his King! One of my favorite sayings is, “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming, ‘WOW! What a ride!’” Thank you Lord.

I married my very best friend, Tammy Chandler Morgan, on June 3, 1989 after dating for two years. We have two beautiful daughters, Paige and Paiton. They are 25 and 20. I grew up in Denham Springs, LA and lived on the same piece of property almost my entire life. I was raised hunting with dogs. The majority of my life I have trained and hunted rabbit dogs, coon hounds and squirrel dogs, which makes the next paragraph so powerful.

I transitioned to senior Pastor at Live Oak Baptist Church in the spring of 2018. Previously I served as  Associate Pastor/Student Minister at Live Oak Baptist Church in Denham Springs, LA since 2004. We lost the roof to our sanctuary in May of 2008. We scheduled a man named Mr Hank to bring what he called his Kingdom Dogs to do a presentation on a Sunday morning while the congregation met in the local high school gym (since our sanctuary was being rebuilt). It was after that event that Hank and myself began the journey of becoming friends and eventually for me to become a presenter for KDM. God opened the door in July of 2013 thru a group of generous friends for me to get Glory. Since then we have been blessed thru more generous friends to purchase Zach and Journey. Giving God all the praise we have had the privilege to do over 500 presentations since 2013 in front of over 124,000 people with over 14,000 Salvations.


“I met Johnny Morgan while doing a Kingdom Dog Ministries presentation at his church in 2008. His welcoming personality coupled with his love for dogs and passion for Jesus Christ instantly bonded us for life. Over time he adopted the KDM presentation and in 2013 he became 02D (Obedience 2 Death) ministries. Today, Johnny gives one of the more unique and powerful presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ of this 21 first century. Live, beautifully trained Labrador retrievers will entertain you, show you the gospel, and possibly transform your life. My suggestion is that you don’t walk, but that you run to the front row.”
Hank and The Dogs
Kingdom Dogs Ministry
“Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! The Lord never ceases to amaze me. I have seen His glory displayed in the villages of Nepal, His majesty declared on the islands of Lake Victoria and His Gospel pronounced from the shores of Maldives. The Lord will use any mechanism available to share His message of hope in Jesus. Johnny and his dogs are another breath-taking demonstration of what the Lord will use to get His message out to the masses. If you have not seen and heard the message of the Gospel through the ministry of Obedience 2 Death, then schedule them ASAP. This ministry’s teaching is so simple a child can grasp, yet it is so beautiful every member of the audience is spell-bound.”

HR Psalm 46:10 SH “Glory"

Psalm 46:10 “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations I will be exalted in the earth.” Glory is a AKC & UKC registered Chocolate Labrador Retriever. Glory has her Hunting Retriever title in HRC and her SH title in AKC with one master pass. We got her in the summer of 2013 and she was our start in this ministry. She is everything you would ever want in a dog from being a faithful companion around the house, to a duck retrieving machine and more importantly a loyal and obedient part of our gospel presentations. Glorys birthday is March 14, 2010.

HR 2 Corinthians 13:4 JH “Trinity”

2 Corinthians 13:14 “May the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.“ We got Trinity in the summer of 2017. We use her now in presentations and are training her to become a focal point of our ministry. She has a lot of Glory’s traits as well as the ability to “clown” like Zach! We will begin her journey of titles in hunt test in the fall of 2018. She was born on March 11, 2017.

HR Proverbs 3:5-6 “Zach"

PROVERBS 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” Zach is a AKC and UKC registered Chocolate Labrador Retriever. We got Zach in the Fall of 2015. We are training him now and using him in our presentations. Currently he has a champion title in “Clowning” and has his Started Hunting Retriever title. Hopefully this fall we will complete his Hunting Retriever title. You never know what he might do…but when he does it you can’t help but love him. Zach’s birthday is May 12, 2014.

HRCH Mercy SH “Mercy”

John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands.” We got Mercy in July of 2018. Mercy will eventually move in doing presentations but right now she is advancing her career in the Hunt Test arena. Mercy has received her HRCH in HRC and SH in AKC Hunt Tests. Mercy is a very talented and athletic dog. She was born on May 31, 2018.
