We have published a Library of “THE PURE WORD OF GOD” on this site given freely by The Holy Spirit to Brother John T. Hendricks, who has been in Heaven since the year 2000. This is a totally donated labor of love by Brother John and this board.


Brother John Hendricks

Brother John T. Hendricks was an Apostle, Preacher, Teacher, and a Rabbi to the Gentiles from the time he accepted Jesus – Yeshua Ha Mashiach – as his Lord and Saviour at age 22. Brother John was first and foremost an Evangelist whose purpose was to spread the Gospel to the World, especially Israel, as both of his parents were of Jewish Faith. Brother John’s earthly father was a doctor.

Brother John T. Hendricks was a graduate of Nyack Bible College where he received a strong foundation in the Word of God, and from which he received his Ordination. When asked to start a Bible College in Akron, Ohio at age 75, his answer was, “Bless God, I just asked The Father to let me be part of ONE MORE MOVE OF GOD, before He takes me home.”

Akron Shalom Ministries was formed, to which Brother John T Hendricks gave his time and energy over his last five years, before he joined that great cloud of witnesses in the year 2000. He was a tireless student of scripture, and enthusiastically shared his gleanings with the world. The power of the precious blood of the cross and the Revelation knowledge of the glory of the Lord will “Bless your heart and liver too” (his pet saying).

The purpose of Akron Shalom Bible Learning Center is to preserve, publish and promote the Word of God which was given to Brother John T Hendricks freely by The Holy Spirit. Brother John T Hendrick’s work is based on the King James Bible and is not Copyrighted. He asked that you feel free to copy and share correctly with all.

Our Board of Directors

Geneva Chervenic

After establishing and operating a successful real estate Company for many years, Geneva received a Bachelor of Divinity degree at age 65 and started another career. Geneva was ordained by Shalom Ministry, Inc. in 2013. A non-profit Bible School was started in her home under the direction and covering of Brother John T Hendricks, along with many saints of God, too many saints to mention.

At age 88, Geneva’s long-term goal is to PRESERVE, PUBLISH, and PROMOTE the work of the late Brother John T. Hendricks by way of the worldwide web for the purpose of sharing The Gospel freely with the world.

Nancy Heston

Secretary & Program Director

Nancy is an R.N. graduate of Akron University School of Nursing. She continues to grow in the knowledge of caring for the physical body as well as restoration of the soul. Sharing freely with others the things that she gleans from ongoing research is one of her passions. As a widow and mother of four, Nancy moved from Colorado back to Northeast Ohio where she was blessed to have sat with her children under the teaching of Brother John Hendricks.

Her service to help preserve his work has been a totally donated labor of love. Nancy says, “I am humbled and immensely blessed to be a small part of bringing you Pastor John Hendricks’ body of Pure Truth from the Word of God. Enjoy, as I have, the blessing of sitting under this humble man’s teachings.”
