1 Corinthians 12:12-14
12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves[a] or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. 14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many.
Rev. Navin K. John comes to St. John’ Church, from St. Barnabas Church, Murugeshpalya, HAL Bangalore.
Rev. John is an alumni of St. John’s School, having studied from LKG to standard 10th and passed out in 1995. He then did his Pre-University (Commerce) in 1997 at St. Aloysius College, Cox Town, Bangalore, and secured a BA degree in 2000 from St. Joseph’s Evening College, Bangalore.
Between 2001 and 2005, Rev. John trained at the Gurukul Lutheran Theological College, Chennai and completed his Bachelor of Divinity (B.D). He then did his Master of Theology (M.Th.) in Systematic Theology at UTC, Bangalore.
In 2000, Rev. John was recruited to the Diocesan pastoral ministry as a ministerial candidate and was ordained in 2005 as a Deacon, and served at churches at Tumkur, Bangalore and the Ramlingpura mission field. Since his ordination as Presbyter in 2007, he has served at churches at Jalahalli, Kengeri, Basavanagudi, Dodballapur, Ramamurthy Nagar, Kothanur, Cox Town, and Electronic City, and, before St. John’s, was at St. Barnabas Church, Murugeshpalya.
We welcome him, his wife Niveditha and son Nischal, and wish them a blessed and harmonious ministry at our church.
St. John’s Church has many opportunities for its members to participate in the different activities. As 1 Peter 4:10 says:Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
