Comment to those looking at my sermons: My sermons on line are as complete as possible to give other Pastor’s information for possible sermons.

Both of Pastor Jerry’s parents have gone Home to the Lord, while both Lynda’s parents live in neighboring states. I turned 65 years of age in December of 2001 and retired form Lord of the Lake and moved to New Port Richey, Florida in January of 2002. Pastor Jerry passed away in his sleep on July 22, 2002.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: The sermons my husband gives always are a delightful surprise for me. I never read them or listen to them in advance because I want to experience them just like other parishioners. It never ceases to amaze me how the Holy Spirit reveals the Scriptures and they come alive in each and every sermon. Needles to say, I feel very fortunate to be married to my Pastor husband.

Hobbies: My major hobby is weight lifting, not body building, but just working out with weights, to keep in shape, for more than fifty-years now, I have been lifting weights.
I also enjoy Roller Skating very much; in fact I met my wife, Lynda Roller Skating.
What I want on my tombstone: “I Love to Tell the Story.”
