Urban Missionary, versatile drummer, humorous communicator, minister, loving husband and grand-father of 7.
John started drumming at 18. He studied under several famous drum instructors locally in Windsor, then began teaching drums 30 years ago and is a much sought-after drum teacher. But he seeks to follow his love as a performer on the stage by being a member of several local bands and working with other musicians.
John began the musical children’s programs at SOE with drum circles for boys, encouraging disciplines in rhythms, concentration and social skill development. His gift for networking and facilitating musical projects with other creative heads will be taking off through his drum clinics Rhythm of Grace.
John’s passion is to see young people, musicians and creative artists encouraged and developed in their talents and to provide for them the opportunities to create original music, places to activate and grow their strengths and have a means of inspiration from other experienced legends and experts.
John has gracefully retired from his full-time position outside of Spirit of Excellence, to now be free to take up the mantle of leading the Ministry of Role Modeling the Spirit of Excellence and each of the divisions such as the new Rhythm of Grace and Worship Arts Institute. As we move into a NEW SEASON of EXPONENTIAL GROWTH!
- We look forward with great expectation to the impact he will make in every facet of all areas, and to his increased presence to motivate one and all to achieve our full potential of EXCELLENCE! As well as teaching drums, Mr. Kosti is in the creative discovery stage of implementing a potential variety of Mens and Musicians Programming including Worship/Prayer Jam Session and gathering collaborating with other musicians, young and old! If you are interested in taking part, please contact him directly to explore the potential of participating! John and his wife Colleen work with artists and professionals locally and globally to inspire a lifestyle of excellence. John and Colleen’s unique and creative hands-on teaching gift provides a safe and confidence building atmosphere for musicians, men, women, children, youth, and creative artists from all walks of life and ages to discover their unique God-given creativity and grow in their leadership skills to impact and bring community transformation. SOE mandate is to provide the opportunities and resources for Raising Leaders from all walks of life and circumstances. As they are trained as Leaders with an Excellent spirit, they will become favoured for positions of leadership and influence – becoming world changers and History Makers. SOE provides these opportunities freely to children and youth that need support to attend SOE Creativity Training Centre with Leadership, Life Skills, Musical & Arts based programs and low-cost tuition classes and workshops.
