Jerry has been actively involved with service in church since 1965 and presently serves as our Elder. Jerry says “the commission that Christ has given His Church has burned in me from the time I was born again, that time when I first felt His call on me. I believe the work of Iasis is the quintessential model that will return His Church to the paradigm of that He has called Her to follow."
Jerry and his wife, Veronica, have been married 50+ years. Veronica is an agent for 31 Products. She has her Bible counselor certification and is a wonderful wife, mother to two grown kids, Steve and Jen and grandmother.

Jerry loves The Logos (the written Word), learning and the Lord; he dislikes pretense, self-righteousness and condemning spirit. His favorite Scripture is Galatians 2:20:
20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
