Lead Pastor Jerry Shirley

 

Associate Pastor Jeremy Smith

The Shirleys

 

Jerry and Kimberly Shirley got plugged in to the Pastor position at GBC on Jerry's 31st birthday in 2001.
Both are "preacher's kids" who grew up in the ministry.  They graduated from Pensacola Christian College and strive to be conservative, yet progressive and relevant to the times in which they minister.  They have been in full-time ministry since 1991. 
They have 3 children:  Jacob, and twins Aaron and Alyssa.

 

"We invite you to get plugged in as well!"

The Smiths

Jeremy and Audra joined our team in 2011.  Jeremy has a musically gifted family, and has been a youth pastor and a solo pastor for many years, as well as one of the earliest subscribers to Pastor Shirley's Grace Notes Sermon Ministry.  He 'jumped at the chance' to work as his right hand man.  The couple graduated from Northland Baptist Bible College and have been in full-time ministry since 1997.  They have 5 children:  Nick, Logan, Katiana, Kalista, and Korinna.
