Chuckk and Andrea Gerwig
Andrea and I are excited about the new and unscripted journey we’re on and glad to trust Jesus (yet again) as we follow him wherever he leads. Over the last 18+ months, I’ve sensed God stirring in me and calling me to listen to him about the future. After enormous amounts of time in prayer / journaling / reflection and counsel it became clear God was calling me to step out of my role as Planter / Lead Pastor at Elevation, the church we planted 12 years ago. In it all, there is a crystal-clear sense God said “it’s time” – even though we don’t know where we’re headed next. The Elders and I chose a short timeline for this transition. The budget at Elevation was unsustainable so I elected to resign my post quickly to keep the church from going bankrupt. The cost of a full-time pastor in the VERY expensive area was too great a burden on this small church at this time. These changes give Elevation a sustainable future! My final day as Lead Pastor was December 31st.
Andrea and I have now embarked on a wild new faith-journey. Heading down this track & into the future there will be two rails. One rail will involve me seeking a new full-time lead pastor role. The other rail will be serving part-time with Global Training Network – training international pastors and leaders to reach their regions for the great King! I plan to be part of training 200+ Majority World leaders in Ethiopia and Cambodia in 2020 as I get started with GTN. The big idea is that I would be able to have an ongoing global impact going forward along with a local pastoral ministry. Pray for us as we seek to raise support for my Global Training Network ministry and as I seek out another lead pastorate. ￼We’re not sure where it’s all going but He knows. He laid the track down!

I’m working on ministry partner development / support raising as I get started with Global Training Network in earnest. I’m praying for God to provide long-term, prayer-filled partners and all the financial resources needed for the ministry. I’m also seeking a lead pastoral role and asking for prayer that God would guide that search. For wisdom in managing major life-changes financially (in the interim at least).
