Johnny enjoys a coffee at Foddermonger

Johnny Douglas is the Centre Director of Youth for Christ based in Stoke-on-Trent, an organisation which takes Christianity to young people. He's married with two young children, and describes himself as "a committed bible waving Christian".

Johnny chose The Foddermonger as his favourite place - a cafe in the Cultural Quarter of Hanley with tables on the pavement, and comfortable sofas and armchairs and coffee tables upstairs:

"I love the fact that no matter what the pace or location of life, in places even such as a restaurant or cafe I can just be still and know that God is God, and see God surprise me by the sight of people walking past, and encounter Him in the urban just as much I ever would in more scenic locations.

"I consistently find that just withdrawing from the pace and the shape of what is ordinary to us gives us an opportunity to reflect and to give, an opportunity for God to surprise us by speaking into our world, giving us sights of something different that might challenge us in our thinking, and to call us to faith and invite us to walk with Him."
