Pastor Jerry

Some of you may remember this guy! I still remember the search team introducing him to the church as "PJ", Pastor Jerry. They introduced him that way because, though he had his Doctorate they didn't think he resembled "Dr. J" too much.

Jerry and Carol are doing well. He retired in January and has had only one Sunday off, Easter Sunday, since then. Other than that he's been preaching on Sundays and fishing during the week.

For their 50th anniversary last fall he and Carol flew first class to Europe where he was chaplain for a Mediterranean cruise. They spent some time exploring London on their way home.

Jerry was the Senior Pastor when I started working at New Life Church as youth pastor. We were delighted to see him at the WorldVenture Dessert. He formerly served on the board of directors for the mission.
