Pastor Jerry is a graduate of Calvary Bible College and Dallas Theological Seminary. He served in three churches prior to coming to Avondale. In addition to his ministry, he enjoys reading, writing, woodworking and music.
As a pastor I see many people struggling with tough life issues, and concerned about their future. “My life seems to be going nowhere, and I have no hope for the future. I see no way to make things better.” “I feel so much stress right now and no one to turn to.”
If that sounds familiar, you are not alone. At Avondale Baptist Church we would like to introduce you to the real hope for your life: A deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He very much wants to be your Savior, who takes your life from where it is now, to where it ought to be. Through the years I’ve noticed that God frequently puts just the right church people in our lives who are an encouragement and a help. At Avondale we like to think of ourselves as your “other” family. Here you will find people who will listen to you and help you develop your relationship with God. We would like to see you join our family and live in hope and in a personal relationship with Jesus. –Pastor Jerry
