Pastor Jerry Cornett is a family man and a man of faith, whose desire is to see the will of the Lord manifested in our world.
Born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin, Jerry graduated from J.I. Case High School in Racine, Wisconsin in the year of 1999. Shortly after graduation, Jerry was ordained as a Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In 2004, Jerry was ordained as an Elder and recognized by such in his home church, Greater Grace Temple Church, located in Racine, Wisconsin. Jerry was blessed to be surrounded by men and women of faith throughout much of his life. This has shaped his stand for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and has influenced his preaching and teaching.
During these 14 years as an ordained Elder, Jerry has developed a unique way of reaching youth, and reaching across ethnic and socioeconomic lines to impact the community through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through his practical, yet powerful presentation of the Gospel, many lives have been encouraged, uplifted and helped through his ministry.
An inherent desire to be better not only for his family, but for his community prompted Jerry to pursue more education and training. In 2014, Jerry received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management from Grand Canyon University. This training in business management has helped Jerry to better operate and facilitate ventures in which he is involved in, giving him the ability to provide great insight and council to those who seek his assistance.
Jerry has served his church in many capacities throughout his tenure, which include, but are not limited to the following: Youth Pastor, workshop facilitator, and in his current role as Assistant Pastor of Greater Grace Temple Church. While serving in ministry, Jerry has worked in prison ministry, and also worked with advising and counseling married couples, and families as a whole. There has been a great impact and positive change in the lives of the families he has worked with.
Personally, Jerry has been married to his lovely wife, Sherel for 18 years, and is the proud father of three wonderful children, Cherish, Johnathan, and Laura.
