"Come As You Are ... Leave Changed!"
Lead Pastor Jerry Shirley
Associate Pastor Jeremy Smith
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!"

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.
