John Wegner Loves The Lord Jesus Christ!
John Wegner is a very intelligent man who loves the Lord Jesus. John grew up and became an extremely good football player in Wisconsin and later on in life actually tried out for the squad of the Dallas Cowboy.
John is a good man who has established himself as not only a great athlete in both football and also baseball over the years, but I must say that John’s athletic accomplishments pale in comparison to his relationship with Jesus Christ!
John was very active in ministry in the Milwaukee area for many years with March For Jesus and also the last few years at Heartfire ministry. He lives a humble life dealing with ill health, yet he gets his strength and comfort from Jesus Christ. I am glad John Wegner and I have been privileged to be friends with John for many years now. ~ Bill Greguska

John Wegner Very Active In Prayer Ministry!
After his football days had been over, John had later embraced the lifestyle of a bar owner and operator, allowed alcohol to lead him where he did not want to be…
But, God answered a three-part prayer for help, hope and deliverance for my friend, John Wegner.
The Lord Can Change The Heart Of Anyone of Us!
God changed John’s heart and then John was set on fire to share the love of the Lord through prayer, Bible study, and ministries in the Milwaukee area for many years. Once John Wegner who was an owner of a bar, who by God’s love and mercy turned his life over to Jesus Christ. John made a significant turnabout that happened after an A.A. meeting where John was soliciting for new customers for his bar.
A dramatic revelation of the Holy Spirit during a mob party reminded John of answered prayer. “If anyone thinks the Lord doesn’t hear the prayers of a sinner, I can assure them He heard mine.” Psalm 17:6-7 John has been a member or Eastbrook Church for over 20 years and has built some strong friendships with other at the church such as former head Pastor Mark Erickson.
Since that day, John Wegner has served as the small group coordinator, prayer team leader, and usher at Eastbrook, his church home. John is Heart-Fire Ministries’ Prayer and Discipleship Coordinator as well as a community leader in Milwaukee.
John Wagner has had many interests such as baseball, football, drinking, and many other interests in his life, but his primary interest for many years now has been Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior!

Some Comments From John Wegner:
Years before I gave my life to Jesus, I was a bar owner. At the bar, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm every afternoon was designated as “Happy Hour” when all drinks were two for the price of one. The intent was obvious and caused multitudes of problems. Car accidents, marriage breakups, arguments, etc.
The presence of evil was abundant. Lying, confusion, distortions of the truth, expression of selfishness, exaggerated pride and death. It was easy to witness what our attitudes should not be. Bolstered by alcohol (spirits), the worst of human behavior was usually on display. “Attitude Adjustment Hour” made much money and destroyed many lives in the process.
The attitude of sin and death is transformed (swallowed up) into abundant life that can be found in Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.” ~ John Wagner
