John Ahrens | South Central – Layman (2016-2018) | Communications Subcommittee Chair | West Texas, Rio Grande, Louisiana, Western Louisiana, Mexico EMAIL: ecmcomm_chair@episcopalcursilloministry.org It’s so easy John to say: “Cursillo changed my Life” – because it’s true!  Before Cursillo, he believed that God was out there… someplace, and He knew all about John.  After Cursillo, he learned God had been right next to me all the time; and that he had intervened and saved me from self-destruction 20-years earlier.  His Reunion Groups, larger Cursillo community and wife (of 24-years) keep him grounded and focused on what’s really important.  John has served in his diocese’s Cursillo leadership for the past 8-years; and recently finished two-years as Lay Director.  He is currently in Education for Ministry (EfM).  At church, he is the lead for his church’s volunteer media ministry.  They call themselves selfless servants; knowing that if the job is done well, the work will be invisible.  John desires to be ready for what God calls him to by asking “What’s next?” and imploring “Send me!”
