About Jerry Irwin
As a teenage boy, he accepted Jesus when he felt a vacancy in his heart that would not be satisfied in any other way. Baseball was a major part of his life and was considering pursuing it for a career when he realized he couldn’t resist the call to preach. So he put the bat down and picked up the Bible!
For the past 26 years, Jerry has served the Harvest Church of God as Senior Pastor. In addition to preaching and teaching, he develops and trains staff for effective ministry. In September 1995, they relocated to the present facility and constructed the Family Life Center and the Media Center. The new Sanctuary and Children’s Ministry Building was added in 2006. For 17 years the church ministered to a global television audience on TBN. The church became a symbol of effective church ministry, and over the years has produced many missionaries, evangelists, and pastors in the US and foreign countries. The Harvest story is one of excitement and accomplishment. One of the greatest being the establishment of HMTV, a television production company that excelled in the sports television arena so well that the production truck was used in the 96 Olympics in Atlanta. Only God knows the number of people touched by the ministry of this great church.
God has blessed him with a loving wife, Debbie, two wonderful children, Brian and Rachael, and adorable grandchildren, Ella Grace and Bentley. He also graduated from the Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee, with a Masters of Arts Degree in Ministry Leadership.
