MEET THE PREFECT

 

Bishop Gerry was born and raised in Colorado and has spent most of his life and ministry there but for two years in Malawi as a missionary with his family and one year in Wisconsin in Seminary at Nashotah House.  In 1975 he met and married Pam and they have two wonderful daughters, Liesl now married to Clay with two boys,  and Heidi now married to Paul with three girls.


In 1977 he was ordained Deacon and in 1978 Priest serving in the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Colorado.  Since then he has served Churches in Malawi, Africa, Denver, Colorado, Salida and Buena Vista, Colorado, and Boulder, Colorado.  In 1999 Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini from Rwanda and his wife Freda visited them in their home in South Denver and learned of the theological challenges those in the Episcopal Church were facing.


When Archbishop Kolini and Archbishop Moses Tay offered refuge in 2000, +Gerry left the Episcopal Church along with two thirds of the Church members he was serving.  He  started a new Anglican Mission in America Church in Denver which grew rapidly.  In 2002 God called him with his family to return to the Boulder, Colorado area and begin planting small, organic, missional Churches.

 They started 10 Churches all originally in one network, four of which have survived to this day and one of which, Epiphany Anglican Fellowship, he is leading as Rector in Longmont, Colorado. 


 He was consecrated Bishop in May of 2015 to serve as an Emissary Bishop for Bishop Sospeter Ndenza of Kibondo, Tanzania and continues in that roll today.  In January of 2018 He was appointed the Prefect of Anglican Mission International, the newest Chapter of the Anglican Mission. 


​Bishop Gerry writes......
 ​​“My passion is and always has been to proclaim the Gospel in season and out of season to any and all who will listen. I love to walk with people who don’t know Jesus, who are getting to know Jesus, who know Him but are new in the faith and those who know Him well and want to know more, like me.  I also have a passion for prayer of all types, but especially intercessory and contemplative.


​​​​I grew up in a Ski town where my father was manager of the ski area.  I  skied every moment I could day and night, lived and dreamed of racing and winning.  My love for the outdoors had me camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and just being in the outdoors as often as possible.  Pam shares that love of the outdoors and we still love walking together in the Mountains or by the Sea whenever possible."


                                                                    Blessings and peace in Jesus
