Following the call to ministry despite wanting to be different from his family.
All across the Upper Cumberland, there are everyday people who are lead to do more than everyday things.
Dr. Jerry Huffman grew up in Kentucky, the son of a Baptist preacher. He came from a family of pastors and missionaries, and as a teenager, he didn’t want to be like everyone else in his profession. During college, he began to feel a call to ministry, but it wasn’t until he began receiving requests from other pastors, some he didn’t know, who all said that God put it on them to ask him to come and preach for them that he truly felt his call to ministry. He joins Denna Hornby to share his experiences pastoring in Texas for 11 years, Kentucky, and now Tennessee where he is senior pastor of Monterey First Baptist Church.
