The Rev. Jerry Herships, AfterHours Denver: “I curse like a sailor. I like brown liquor, look at pretty girls. I said, ‘I am not the guy to go into ministry at all.’ To his credit, he said, ‘Maybe you are just the guy who should go into ministry.’ Once I was given permission to not be perfect or not be as holy as I thought you had to be, then it became more intriguing.”

He’s the founder of Afterhours Bar Church in Denver and the author of Last Call: From Serving Drinks to Serving Jesus. He spoke with Crackers and Grape Juice in Episode 39.
