Jerry Coleman directs the team of Francis Asbury Society Speakers that carries the Good News all over the world. Jerry oversees this team with many years of ministry experience in over 50 countries. For 17 years, Jerry and his wife, Janice, served as missionaries in Europe with the Free Methodist Church. The last 11 years he served as the area director for continental Europe.
A career in his family’s business was redirected when Jerry felt a call to full-time ministry in the early 1980s. He was ordained in 1987 in the Free Methodist Church. Jerry has pastored two churches in the USA and served as the Assistant Director of VISA and Personnel for Free Methodist World Missions before moving with his family to Europe in 1996.
Jerry and Janice have three grown children. Sarah and her husband, Russell, live in Berlin, Germany. Kristin lives in Los Angeles, CA, and David and his wife, Alison, live in Lexington, KY. Jerry is a graduate of Greenville College (Greenville, Illinois) and Asbury Theological Seminary (Wilmore, Kentucky).
