  1. Does anyone know where Dwain Johnson is today? He is no longer with Jimmy Swaggart Ministries effective sometime in the early 1980's. Is he still singing today?

  2. Dwain Johnson, the guitarist in the Swaggart gospel band was caught in flagrante delicto with Jimmy's daughter-in-law, Debbie. When Swaggart heard about the affair, he reportedly told Johnson that if he wasn't out of town by Monday, he'd be carried out on a stretcher. Eventually, in a settlement negotiated by Swaggart's lawyer, Johnson was given title to a ministry-owned home and allowed to sell it on the open market, netting a profit of about $20,000. That settlement, claims John Camp, was in effect hush money.

  3. Dwain Johnson was a great talent and was an integral part of the Swaggart ministry. I respect Swaggart a great deal but don't understand how forgiveness isn't given to Dwain Johnson.

  4. I have several records of Dwain's one I have that I like is Heaven on my mind. He was with Jimmy Swaggart then. He had a very nice voice and God really used him. I pray for him often that God will make his latter ministry greater then his beginning! Mark Miller www.Music4HimNow.com

  8. My name is Virginia Rossouw from South Africa. Dwain and I,through his awesome songs,got in touch,wrote to each other,spoke on the phone every second week,and he sent me his first cassette. He verbally encouraged me to listen to the song,titled 'He',when I had gone through some rough patches. If anyone read this,would you please provide me with an e mail address. By the way,it was through the LP above,my family and I started to get familiar,and sang his songs. Please Dwain,if you are reading this,get in touch with me via e mail. God bless

  11. Hi Mark.

    We were able to get to the Link for "Jesus Got a Hold of my Life". However, we did this via our old Windows XP machine. It won't work with either my Windows 8.1 Desktop or my Windows 8.1 Lap Top.

    Thanks,

    1. I use a Mac, so I really don't know. The usual issue is Flash when you can't see the player. You might need to "enable" a Flash plugin in this version of your OS?

  14. I am a cousin of his, and have been trying to find his address as well. Dwain comes from a wonderful Christian family, very talented his father has written wonderful songs, and his mother was a wonderful piano player. They are both getting up in age but are very devoted to each other and their children. Dwain is Minister of Music someplace in Louisiana... If anyone contacts him please post it. We are all getting up in age, I would love to see him and his sister once more.
