John Gerhardt
Role: Guest Speaker
John and Wendy have been serving inner-city New Orleans since 1991. Originally from Wisconsin and Iowa, John spent time as a History teacher, and Wendy received her Masters in Midwifery. When first called to ministry they served as youth workers in Minneapolis, MN. It was after taking their youth on a mission trip to New Orleans, that John and Wendy realized God had given them a heart for the inner-city poor. By 1992 the Gerhardts had moved to New Orleans. Over the past 12 years, the Gerhardts have been actively involved in transforming the Central City of New Orleans through Bible Studies, mentoring of children and adults, and through Castle Rock Community Church (CRCC) established in 1998. John is currently the Pastor of CRCC, and the Executive Director of Urban Impact. Wendy is busy with their four children, and the mentoring of young women in the community. Please pray for their ministry in the Central City of New Orleans. Wanna learn more?

Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. - Luke 10:30 (ESV) One thing that amazes me about Jesus is his ability to see through all the smoke screens that people would put up especially religious people. Religious folk, like us, are great at using our faith as a shield to avoid love and action. The parable of the Good Samaritan is a great example of that kind of deflection. This week we have the privilege to have John Gerhardt with us. John is the director of Urban Impact ministry in NOLA. We have supported and ministered alongside John and the team there for many years. He will be opening up the word to this parable and he will be jumping in with the worship team. It should be a great morning!
