The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall. ~ Vince Lombardi
Psalm 46: 1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
1 Timothy 4:8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
John Wegner, My Good Friend, And Brother In Christ!
Anyone who knows John Wegner will say that he is a brilliant man who loves the Lord Jesus, he grew up and became an outstanding football player in Wisconsin and also did very good at baseball.
Then later on in life tried out for the squad of the Dallas Cowboy in 1966.
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!
Our friend John was very active in ministry in the Milwaukee area for many years with March For Jesus. He also has been busy the last few years at Heartfire ministry. He lives a quiet life dealing with ill health, yet he gets his strength and comfort from Jesus Christ.
John Wegner gave up drugs and alcohol at the age of 36 and lived his last 37 years for the Lord. God answered a three-part prayer for help, hope, and deliverance for John Wegner. Once an outstanding football player, John tried out for the Dallas Cowboys and made the roster. John influenced my life and the lives of many others.
I am glad John Wegner and I have been privileged to be friends with John for many years now. John has had many close friends in ministry such as Brian Larson, Mark Mallwitz, myself, etc.~ 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!
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.”
John has been a member or Eastbrook Church for over 20 years and has built some strong friendships with others at the church, such as former head Pastor Marc 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 things he focused on in his life, but his primary interest for many many years has been Jesus Christ, his Lord, and Savior! Up until the day he died.
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 apparent 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 an abundant life that can be found in Jesus Christ. John has served at Heart Fire Ministry as Prayer & Discipleship Coordinator for ten years.
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.”
