My name is Logan Gentry, I am married to an excellent, amazing, beautiful wife, Amber and the Lord has blessed us with 2 boys, Eli (who is 5 & in Kindergarten), and Calvin (who is 3 1/2 & obsessed with snapping) & an amazing baby girl, Mya (who just turned 1 & is the sweetest of all of us). My wife stays home with our kids in our 2 bedroom apartment, mentors women with her spare time, is an amazing wife and mother to our kids.
We currently live in New York City in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. God brought us here in September 2010 to be a part of the mission of Apostles Church. I am the Pastor of Community & Justice at Apostles Church. Apostles Church is a network of neighborhood congregations (currently meeting in the Upper East Side and Union Square area). We are a community learning what it means to follow Jesus Christ in the context of a global city. We love and enjoy our city and are seeking its renewal through the message and mercy of Christ.
I oversee our Community Groups which are small groups of people who meet in their local neighborhood to enjoy the gospel, apply it to their lives and each other, so that they can proclaim & display the gospel of Jesus Christ through word and deed. We have 3 core values for the community groups: Gospel Enjoyment (Centering on the gospel and celebrating the finished work of Jesus), Intentional Community (Shared rhythm of life by the Spirit of God for the mission of God.) and Prayer Mission (prayerfully pursuing the renewal of our neighborhoods through word and deed).
I also work with our Industry Renewal Networks and Family Ministry. Occasionally, I will preach at Apostles or at another partner church.
Our community groups are also challenged to serve with Hope For New York or other organizations to renew the city and pursue justice living in their everyday lives. Justice living is caring for the poor, marginalized, and oppressed with our time, talent, finances, and energy. It is the hope that our community groups become the center for spiritual formation leading to the transformation of our neighborhoods to see an entire city renewed.
