Jerry’s roots are found in the West Texas town of Brownfield. Long before he was pastoring in Lubbock, he was visiting with his girlfriend (now his wife) the Hub City on date nights. Jerry and Karla were high school sweethearts. They got married way too young, 19 years young and started chasing God’s will together. They both graduated from Hardin-Simmons University. God has blessed them with three beautiful children and three grandchildren. They count it a huge blessing that all their children live in Lubbock, especially those precious grand babies.
For the last 25 years, Jerry has served as a pastor of a local church. All the way from a small country church south of Fort Worth called, First Baptist Church, Lillian, to a rural church, First Baptist Church, Clyde America. The most recent twelve years, he has had the blessing of leading Bacon Heights Baptist in Lubbock.
Jerry’s great passion is to see GREATER KINGDOM IMPACT by churches choosing to cooperate together. Synergy says that churches can do multiple more together than they can isolated and separated. His passion is that the Association will foster churches in linking arms to achieve much more than ever before, for God’s glory
