John Thar - Church Planting Team
John was born and raised in Benin, West Africa. He takes great joy at the expression that comes on people's faces when he tells people that. John received his Bachelors in Youth Ministry from Toccoa Falls College, and just before graduating he met the crew from Envision Atlanta. What they presented was an opportunity to combine two of the greatest passions the Lord has instilled within John: the love of Christ coming to youth and to people from all over the world. John is extremely grateful and excited to be a part of the house church movement in "America's most diverse square-mile."
If someone wanted to give you a small gift what would it be? - Freshly roasted coffee beans from small companies.
Can you share a verse that has special meaning to you? - Yes, Jesus' Prayer in John 17:20-23 "I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me."
Besides working in Clarkston what do you like to do for fun? - What I do for fun? I love making coffee for people even more than I love drinking it. I can beat you in ping pong. Board games keep people together.
