Feeding His Flock

The Rev. Dr. Gene E. Handwerk ’77 (M.D.V.), ’85 (M.A.P.C.) received the 30th annual John Hus Award from Moravian Theological Seminary at its alumni luncheon March 14.

A native of Lehigh County, where his father was a potato farmer, Gene received a degree in agronomy from Delaware Valley College before accepting the call to ministry. He also earned a D.M. from Drew University in 1982.

He was pastor of the Lutheran Congregation of Ziegels Union Church in Breinigsville (1977-96) and a member of the extended counseling staff of Family Life Services at the Lutheran Home in Topton (1985-90). He has completed two terms on the Seminary’s board of trustees.

The citation praises his “experience in raising physical food and his training to share spiritual food.”
