Pastor Jerry was raised in a Pentecostal home; a background where his earliest memories were that of church revivals. With tremendous musical abilities in his life, he was involved at an early age in worship. "I remember playing the piano in church at the age of five and people giving their life to the Lord," says Pastor Jerry. This gift that God placed within him, opened the doors in his teen years for the true call of God that was upon his life; to preach the word of God.
For the majority of his adult life, he has been actively involved in full time ministry. During the earlier years of working in ministry, he served three visionary pastors while training and perfecting his skills. From Baton Rouge, to Sacramento, to Austin, God was preparing him for his season of destiny. In October 1999, he returned to Lake Charles and established Christian World.
