BENEFITING: FOLLOWERS OF JESUS MENNONITE CHURCH

EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014

Lowell Herschberger

THE STORY:

A Century Bike Challenge  event to raise money for the staff of Followers of Jesus in East New York.  These folks embody the tenacity of my favorite missionary, David Herschberger. 

In one of New York's "high risk" neighborhoods, there is a little gem called Followers of Jesus Mennonite Church (www.fjmcnyc.org).  At the church is a tenacious band of staff that make less money than even the mostly-low-income residents of the neighborhood.  Their low wages are not because they are short term missionaries.  These folks are in it for the long haul having an average tenure of around 10 years.  I am talking about the teachers of Follower's of Jesus School (www.fjschool.org) and one full time pastor/evangelist, Daniel Pollard, who leads His Glory Ministries (www.hisgloryministries.info) in addition to a half-time pastor role. 

These folks embody the same stubborn committment to the kingdom of God that my dad embodied for 49 years as a missionary in Northwestern Ontario.  I happen to know that they have not all received their paychecks on time.  That, my friends, is a travesty!

Join me in celebrating the tenacity of these worthy workers.
