Jerome Gay, Jr., is the founder of Vision Church in Raleigh, NC—a gospel-centered, socially conscious, missionally minded, disciple-making church that’s serving Raleigh and surrounding areas. At Vision Church, he serves as the Lead Pastor of Teaching, Preaching, and Vision.
Jerome also serves on the board of Thriving, an urban resource collective that equips and trains urban practitioners for ministry and impact. He speaks to churches and organizations all over the country. He has a Master’s Degree in Christian Studies and Ethics from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Jerome is married to his lovely wife, Crystal Gay, and is the father of Jamari Christina Gay and Jerome Jordan Gay III.
Jerome’s uncanny savvy to unearth the ancient depths of biblical text as well as nuance it for our day is genius. I’m so glad to have his voice that I have heard for almost a decade, that I have heard through his journey now written. Take this work and apply it to areas of your life where you are trusting God to redeem.
Immensely biblical, yet refreshingly practical. If you’ve ever wondered if God loves you or found yourself sinking in swamps of shame your reservoirs of hope will be renewed once you reach this much needed book.
This is the kind of book that could only come from someone who faithfully walks with God and alongside real people, a message of hope arising from a man who has devoted his life to helping hurting people.
Jerome captures the beauty of the gospel in the story of Ruth, while giving the reader practical ways to apply the gospel daily. IN whatever season you may be in your life, this book will challenge and inspire you to live with a renewed perspective. I highly recommend Renewal because it’s a great read for individuals and entire churches.
