Mark Mohr of Christafari plants a The Gathering in St James, Trinidad.

THE LEAD vocalist of pioneering gospel reggae band Christafari, Mark Mohr, with his wife Avion, has planted a church in Trinidad. The American-born singer said, "After studying the Christian churches of Trinidad I found a major void. While many churches may have a good youth group, when a teenager finishes high school, he/she is stuck with two choices: become a youth leader or attend their church's general service which can be tough for a 17 year old teen who watches more BET than TBN." After this realisation and much prayer, the Mohrs set out to plant The Gathering in the city of St James. The Gathering is redefining the Christian church for today's young adults in Trinidad and Tobago." CR
