We welcome to our pulpit this Sunday Rev. Gary Koerth.
Rev. Koerth serves as Associate Pastor on the staff of Tabernacle Evangelical Presbyterian Church in the Youngstown, Ohio, suburb of Austintown. He has served this congregation for 28 years.
Rev. Koerth received a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1980 from Waynesburg University in Waynesburg, PA and a Master of Divinity in 1988 from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, MA.
He worked for the Coalition for Christian Outreach for four years at Ashland College and Youngstown State University. Then, Gary was called to Tabernacle Church as an Associate Pastor in 1988, where he served as Youth Pastor for ten years. He has continued to minister at Tabernacle Church in several different roles, primarily in the areas of congregational care and missions.
Rev. Koerth and his wife, Cindy, have relocated to live in the Idora neighborhood of Youngstown to continue the Idora ministry started five years ago. They currently live in and have begun rehabbing a house in the neighborhood and also have started the process of locating a facility in the Idora Neighborhood to start a Community Center and eventually a church. We at Redeemer Presbyterian Church (EPC) continue to support their ministry in the planting of a new Evangelical Presbyterian Church in this Idora neighborhood.
Rev. Koerth and his wife have two adult children, Michael (24) and Melinda (22).
We look forward to the message that God has laid on Rev. Koerth’s heart to share with us.
We welcome anyone who wishes to join us for worship.
