Pastor's Corner

I am blessed with the assignment to the Bostwick United Methodist Church.  Having served previously at the Pennington UMC, I had driven through the community often.  While the beauty of the facilities impressed me, now knowing the church family, I am even more impressed with the wonderful church family worship and fellowship.

If you are not a part of the church family or have not been for a while, it is a wonderful time to join us on Sunday mornings and other opportunities of worship or service.

I am often asked, "How long have you been preaching?"  I can hardly remember.  I was preaching at about the age of 14.  Licensed to preach at 17 and then ordained at about age 21.  If you know my age......then it has been a long time.  The earlier part of my ministry was served in the Baptist Church.  I am in my fifteenth year as a minister in the North Georgia Conference. 

I grew up in Polk County, Georgia, near Rome, in a wonderful rural church.  The Antioch Church has been the family church for five or more generations.  It helped bring me to faith and create the atmosphere to where I could understand the call to ministry.

I graduated from Shorter College with a History Degree and Secondary Education.  I then graduated from Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY with a Master of Divinity degree.  At the time of my graduation the school was rated one of the best theology schools in the world.  Later I took the Methodist Courses required at Candler and first became a probationary elder and then later an elder in the UMC.

My greatest education for ministry has been living and working with the congregations I have served through the years.  I am excited about continuing the journey at Bostwick UMC.

Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Pastor Jerry
