Having studied Bible at Moody Bible Institute (Baptist), Chicago, Illinois—with extended language studies at Milligan College (United Church of Christ), Johnson City, Tennessee, Jerry brings to the Apostolic pulpit the refreshing alliance of a fundamental Pentecostal experience federated with a formal education.
Having received consecration as District Elder in the New England dioceses of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World in 1999, Jerry has gone on to be elevated to the office of Bishop by the Disciples of the Way (Apostolic), and serves on the International Board of Bishops of the Independent Christian Churches International; Bishop Jerry has been honored to receive apostolic succession for his bishopric spanning two milliena to our Lord's apostles and now serves as the Abbot General of the Disciples of the Way (Apostolic).
