More at umc.org/videos/. Jerry Herships had a successful career in entertainment doing standup comedy and rubbing elbows with celebrities like Dick Clark and Wink Martindale. At the age of 40 Herships followed his heart and started over. At the United Methodist Iliff School of Theology in Colorado, he immersed himself in the ways of John Wesley and decided to minister to those who might not be comfortable in a traditional church.
Later, Herships founded AfterHours Denver, a faith community that meets in bars and restaurants and feeds the homeless seven days a week. “We’re here to help you have an authentic relationship with God. And I’ve seen that happen in cathedrals and I’ve seen that happen in country churches. And I’ve seen it happen in bars,” says Herships.
On April 7, 2013, Herships has organized an event called PBJ FOR HUNGER- Spread the Love to encourage churches across the United States to make sandwiches to share with the homeless in their community. For more information, visit afterhourschurch.com.
