Jerry was born in Pasadena, California. At nine years of age he and his family moved to Savannah Georgia where he spent the majority of his formative years. Being a high school football player offered him the opportunity to play at the college level at Trinity International in Deerfield, Illinois. After several injuries the Lord providentially took away the desire to play football and replaced it with a desire for ministry.
After years of wrestling with whether or not he should pursue vocational ministry the Lord sent him to Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi to pursue a Masters of Divinity. During his four years of training he spent the summer of 2018 interning at Christ Presbyterian Church. This eventually, in God’s providence, turned into a call to serve as an Assistant Pastor as well as starting a college ministry at Southern Connecticut State University.
Some of his passions are: traveling, spending time in nature such as hiking, kayaking and camping. Reading fiction and non-fiction, theology, philosophy, apologetics and science books are a joy and a delight to him. Using these various genres, along with sports and nature are tools he uses to disciple and point people to Jesus Christ.
