Christian Johnson,
Chief Executive Officer

Christian joined IMGN Life as CEO 2017 after retiring as a lieutenant colonel from the U.S. Army.  He comes with the unique perspective of having been conceived in rape and exists today because of a pregnancy-help ministry that came along his mother’s side during a time of crisis. He says, “Were it not for my biological mother’s courage and the support she received, my adoptive family would not have had a son and brother, nor would my own two children exist today.  I believe God gave me this life story to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.”

Christian holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Education from Liberty University and a Masters of Quality Systems Management from the National Graduate School.  His diverse professional experience includes sexual assault victim advocacy, strategic partnership development, marketing/advertising program management, family support programs, and high school teacher/coach which all uniquely prepared him for this position. Christian and his wife Amie have two married adult children.

They were teenagers when they found themselves in an unplanned pregnancy, but with the assistance of a young parent’s program and the grace of God, they overcame the struggles. After the loss of their only son, she sensed a calling to help those who are conflicted in an unplanned pregnancy. She says, “It has helped me grow in faith and compassion. Each day is a new opportunity to be God’s hands and feet. To serve others who may not realize how much they are loved while remembering that only God can save. We are the sowers of the seed God has entrusted to us.”

After completing nursing school with her BSN in Pensacola, Florida, she began working as a staff nurse in Harrisonburg, Va.

Several moves and three children later, God led their family to the Fredericksburg area in the fall of 2020. With her children a little older, she felt God calling her to use her nursing skills for His glory. It was her desire to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus and minister to those in need, but she wasn’t sure where. Jenny is so thankful God led her to Choices Women’s Center. It is a wonderful feeling to meet women where they are and truly listen to their stories and try to give them hope and courage no matter what the situation is. Sharing the love of Christ not just in word but also in action. Jenny has been married for 21 years and has three wonderful children.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family exploring the new area they now live in.

Gloria Whitley,
Nurse Manager

In 1974, Gloria was the Nursing Supervisor for Rappahannock Health District where she referred several girls for an abortion. She later became radically pro-life and dedicated her life to the movement. Her favorite aspect of working at IMGN Life is being able to share Jesus’ love, purpose, and plan for these babies’ lives. When asked how this experience has changed her, Gloria responded, “I am blessed to minister with so many lovely, passionate, Godly women. Their unique impact has increased my joy, made me more grateful, and encouraged me to aim higher. The clients also have demonstrated great strength and hope in the midst of tragic life circumstances. Even the clients who choose abortion renew my commitment to life. Seeing lives healed and changed gives me encouragement to see God’s grace on display. One of our consultants says, ‘When we do the difficult, God does the impossible’. When I am weary, burdened, or full of mistakes, I experience grace.”
