Biography

American pastor, author and global humanitarian who is known for his outreach efforts to the world’s poorest citizens. He often says his primary spiritual gift is “hanging out.” He owned and operated a “Borderline Bordello” before joining the ministry and today Pastor Rudy co-pastors the St. John’s United Methodist Church located on two campuses in Downtown and Northwest Houston with his wife Juanita.

St. John's began with 9 members in 1992 and in 22 years grew to over 9,000 members. It is one of the most culturally diverse congregations in the country. Every week people of every social, economic and ethnic background share the same pew. He attributes the success of the church to a compassionate group of people who embraced the vision of tearing down the walls of classism, sexism, and racism and building bridges of unconditional love, universal recovery and unprecedented hope.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Birthday History" by Pastor Rudy, Cape May Count Herald, 24 February 2016: "Today is my birthday. This year Feb. 24 falls on a Wednesday. I was also born on a Wednesday at 5:03 p.m. at St. Mary’s Hospital in Passaic. On the day I was born, the “Theme from the Summer Place” by Percy Faith was the number one song in America. [1].

NB: This Percy Faith song was a hit in 1960 and 24 Feb that year was indeed a Wednesday.
