He Ministered in Europe with the Love Europe campaigns and lived in England working primarily with the Church of the Nazarene until, as Johan puts it, "by mistake on their side (but by the Lord's humor and supreme plan) I landed in Georgia." After being in Bible College and completing a Bachelorís degree in Theology, Johan was "Helping out as a missionary" in Merritt's Bridge S.C. when Dr. Dave Alexander ordained and installed him as a minister for the Disciples of Christ. He hasn't looked back since, pastoring churches in Varnville, S.C, and Sebring FL and most recently as pastor of Sanctuary Christian Church in Albany, Ga.

Peachtree Corners Christian Church

Sunday morning, February 12, 2017 was the date and Peachtree Corners Christian Church was the place to be.  The men of PCCC hosted their annual Sweethearts Breakfast and around 20 members were in attendance.  Scott Kelly, our Pancake Professional, Bruce Brandt, Don Hill, Eddie Trumble, Max Ramos and Will and William Purdue were on par with everthing from the aforementioned pancakes to sausage, turkey bacon, breakfast casserole, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, biscuits, pastries and fruit bowl as well as Coffee and Juice that were provided.

As the event opened with a warm welcome and prayer for the meal, Eddie and our Men's Ensemble gave a musical salute to the women with the song "She will be called Blessed."  Eddie even played his trumpet in accompaniment.  This was a fun and relaxing event for all there.  Click on a photo below for larger view:

The men of First Christian Church, Griffin, sponsored a Sunday dinner to benefit Camp Christian.  Larry Conner cooked the barbecue and the rest of the men furnished the remainder of the meal.  The dinner raised $625 to be donated to Camp Christian. (The food was good, too.) 

Johns Creek Christian Church Menís group

The JCCC Menís has partner with the IMPACT Group. The Menís group have started a tool pantry for families involved in their housing program we have asked our men and members of the church to bring lawn tools which will help a new family in their new home provided by The IMPACT Group.

Years ago our church introduced a program in support of North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) that we affectionately call "DAWGS" or Dollar A Week Grocery Savings. With our members and participants contributing just a dollar a week, we have been able to purchase thousands of canned goods which have been donated to NFCC and distributed at Thanksgiving to qualified needy families. It is that time of year again when we are soliciting your help. Please consider giving your "dollar a week" offering towards this important ministry. We will be purchasing our canned goods on Thursday, November 20th, so please give generously.

Why Attend Regional Men's Events?

  1. We should spread the word to others that God is working through men.
  2. Shared experiences help you and others.
  3. We can work together for a greater good in mission ventures.
  4. We can benefit, grow and discover a better picture of the church as Jesus intended.
  5. We can share Spiritual fellowship -- we are kindred spirits.
  6. We see that we are not alone and that others go through the same things in this life.
  7. Our gatherings reinforce who we are as Disciples and that the church is global, not limited.
  8. We have greater opportunity to hear new insight from speakers from the wider church.
  9. We can tackle larger service projects as a region than a single congregation can do.
  10. Physical fellowship -- being with likeminded believers in a ministry of presence.
  11. We are meant to gather -- Jesus sent his Disciples out in groups, not alone.
  12. We share an abundant and overflowing outpouring of Christian love among the men.
  13. To be a greater witness to the joy of salvation in Christ.
  14. A benefit -- "as iron sharpens iron, so to does one man another"
  15. So you can meet more folks you'll spend eternity with.
  16. Because God is worshipped and you can experience that worship through music, singing and prayer from a uniquely male perspective and atmosphere.
  17. To stay informed about the joys, needs and concerns of the wider church.
  18. Somebody there may need your help.
  19. Somebody there may be your help.
    And last but not least,
  20. A verse -- " Forsake not the assembling of yourselves" for Christ's sake.
