Morning Star Community Christian Center, a multicultural, interdenominational, Christian based church located in Linden, NJ is a congregation of over 1000 believers who have the faith necessary to change lives through knowledge and consistent practice of biblical principles.
Morning Star was founded by the late Bishop Irvin Evans and his wife Constine and has evolved into lives being restored and destinies fulfilled under the leadership of the current senior pastor Dr. Therman Evans, who took over the pastorate in 1999. Morning Star’s mission is and always has been changing lives, discipling believers, and impacting the world. The message of “wholeness” in mind, body, and spirit, and helping people find their way back to God has contributed to Morning Star’s increased membership.
Meet Tafari & Bonnet Brown. Tafari & Bonnetta met in college, and have been blessed to experience 16 years of marriage. Moving from St. Petersburg, FL to Westfield, NJ in 2013, Bonnetta was introduced to Morning Star by a co-worker who told her Morning Star was ‘The Best Church on Earth.’ After visiting and experiencing praise and worship with their daughter Briana (15), and son Elijah (8), they agreed with the statement, and the family of four joined Morning Star.
Tafari, a proud Jamaican-American, is a United States Air Force Veteran. He is currently working on his Master’s degree in Human Resources Management, transitioning from his current role as a NJ Transit technician. During his free time he can be found in the gym, or listening to music. He also loves to cook, and has a passion for prayer.
Bonnetta, a Litigation Paralegal, is currently working on obtaining a M.S.J. in Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Law and Compliance. She lifts spirits with laughter and relaxes with a good book or movie. Spending time baking with her children also brings her enjoyment.
This couple knows from whom their blessings come, as Bonnetta’s favorite scripture says, “I am the vine you are the branches. He who abides in me and I in him, He it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” – John 15:5 (KJV). Both Tafari and Bonnetta are currently serving on Morning Star’s social media team.
