The Rev. Jerry Lasley


Fr. Jerry was elected second rector of St. Christopher’s and began his ministry with us in 2021.

“I love to preach and take this role very seriously.  My life experiences continue to train me to be a compassionate person when dealing with transition times for parishioners.  Being with people during good and challenging times is essential to who I am.  I am very good at mediating difficult times.

“You will find that I am a very collaborative person and a very transparent person.  People are attracted to others who are genuine and can see right through fake people.”
