Dallas denominational restaurant honors pastor who passed away from COVID-19 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
The stage is set for The Five Experience restaurant in Dallas to open its doors to the public. This is Bishop Omar Jahwar’s dream.
“He was an ordained minister at the age of 12, so he walked a lot in his faith and in his vocation,” said Bishop Omar Jahwar’s sister Fayth Jefferson.
Jefferson said he was on the verge of seeing his dream come true, but COVID-19 delayed the opening and took his life.
“On March 11, we lost Omar and it was just very tragic and very unexpected, but that’s how God planned it,” Jefferson said.
But she leaves nothing to prevent The Five Experience from fulfilling its objective and the principles preached by Bishop Omar.
“The Five Experience is part of the High Five methodology which is soul winning, social service, social interaction, social networking, enhanced worship,” Jefferson said. “It was the social interaction element of his methodology. So he wanted to bring food and fun and come out of the walls of the church. “
The restaurant is also giving some teenagers a second chance by partnering with Cafe Momentum, a nonprofit that hires young people who have stayed in juvenile facilities.
This whole concept is based on serving the life of Bishop Omar to the client.
“One thing about Bishop, he was able to meet people beyond their circumstances,” Jefferson said. I honored him because that’s what he’s talking about. “
