Sharing Jesus in Our Culture
Born in Rochester, Michigan, Jerry spent 11 years as a draftsman in the engineering field. In 1974 he, his wife Connie, and his family moved to Lubbock, Texas where he studied and graduated from the Sunset International Bible Institute. Jerry has spent the last 35 years preaching Christ and sharing the Gospel message in thousands of personal Bible studies. He has developed the practical and effective method for sharing Christ as found in his book, "His Eternal Plan," for those who are searching for the truth about Christianity.
Jerry retired from full-time congregational preaching with the Rochester Church of Christ after serving as its preaching minister for 20 years, after which he and his wife sold their home and hit the road in a 40 foot motorhome, bringing “His Eternal Plan” to everyone across North America by conducting evangelism workshops. The Sunset International Bible Institute has produced a video series featuring Jerry and demonstrating his teaching approach.
Jerry is an accomplished artist and has produced hundreds of art pieces. Jerry visits and speaks at many Bible lectureships across the country. Visit his web site at www.hiseternalplan.com.
