Mammoth – Some of you may have already met Jerry Morelan, the new Interim Pastor at Mammoth Assembly of God Church, located at 201 East Kino St. in Mammoth. He’s been around for a while, off and on.
Mr. Morelan moved to Mammoth in 1998, when he became a youth minister at the Church of God in San Manuel under Pastor Terry Warner. In 2005, he became assistant pastor and youth minister at God’s Filling Station under Pastor Charles Morelan. So, you may have met him at one of those places, or, just around the tri-community area. If you haven’t met Jerry Morelan, yet, or, haven’t gotten a chance to know who he really is, read on and meet him, now.
“I gave my heart to the Lord at the age of 13. I felt the call of the lord when I was in High school. I was instrumental in starting a christian Bible club in my high school. We named the group C.L.O.C. or Christian Life On campus. We met around the flag pole for 5 am prayer.” says Jerry. With such good beginnings, you’d expect Jerry’s ministry to shine, wouldn’t you? And, you wouldn’t be disappointed.
From 1992-1996 I served under Pastor John Finley and Pastor Hancel Odom as youth president at St.Johns Assembly of God. We were involved in mission trip to Nogales, AZ and Agua Prieta.When our youth Pastor resigned his position and moved to become Pastor in Bisbee I was appointed youth minister by Pastor Hancel Odom, during that time I took Berean Bible study courses under his discipleship. After graduating from St.Johns High School in 1996 I moved to Bisbee, AZ where I became full time youth minister for Bisbee Assembly of God under Pastor John Finley. In 2003 I enrolled in Grace Bible College and Seminary International Correspondence Program, Morrisville,NC I completed the course in 2004 receiving pastors licence and ordination. In 2008-2010 I moved to Dallas,Tx where I attended Christ For The Nations Bible College. During that time I was involved in prison and street ministry and at the completion of the courses I went on a five week missionary trip to Asia. This is my journey up to now. During my christain years I’ve experienced my share of ups and downs as we all do. I have been guilty of stepping away from my calling and letting God down. But while I let Him down, He never let me down. While I was unfaithful, He was always faithful. His love endures forever. He never gave up on me, always calling me back when I strayed from the path. So here I am today His minister in Mammoth, AZ and I want to invite you, if you do not have a church home, to come and fellowship with us. We have Sunday school at 9:45am on Sunday mornings followed by worship at 11:00am and Sunday evening service at 6:30 pm, we also have a Wednesday evening service at 6:30. We hope as time goes by to add other services as well. If you do have a church home I encourage you to attend your church but know that you are also welcome to fellowship and worship with us in one of our services that does not conflict with yours. We are all God’s family and someday we will be fellowshipping together in heaven. Until then…Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works. Not Forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25… God bless you all.
