My name is Juan Huertas. I am the pastor of St. John’s United Methodist Church << in Baton Rouge, LA.  I am married to Shannon Perry Huertas and we have three children, Seth, Isabelle, & Lucas. Shannon has a degree in Psychology and is an aspiring Sex Therapist (you can follow Shannon on Twitter @embodyingbeauty).

I am thankful that my kids are growing up around a diverse community which allows them to see that family is about love, respect, & life together not sameness.

I have a blog called Spirit Stirrer << Blogging is a way for me to exercise the frustrated writer in me and to share my journey of life & faith.
