Harvesting in the ‘Burgh – One Relationship at a Time.
“These men have been used by God in a transformational way to impact every aspect of my life: my marriage, family, friendships, and business.” –Bill Krahe
In 2007, Brennan Gaertner founded White Fields Foundation (WFF) with a heart to challenge men in their faith and mentor fatherless boys in inner-city Pittsburgh. Often, it is our failures that make us “ripe” for the Gospel. With desperate situations prevailing, the “harvest is ripe”; hence the name “White Fields Foundation.” Recognizing our deep need is the essence of Christian faith.
Our mission is harvesting what God is doing in Pittsburgh. We are building bridges of reconciliation between men in the business community and the poor through the transformational power of the Gospel. In June 2008, WFF launched a Christian men’s ministry with the leadership of Leo Wisniewski. Its focus is to challenge men to deepen their faith commitment through strengthening marriages and families, serving the poor, and living out God’s Word in friendship. Many have been blown away by the authentic relationships, the laughs we enjoy and the teaching of God’s Word. To date, there has been a full schedule of outreach dinners, retreats, games, and breakfasts that have been well supported by groups of 25-50.
