Brief biography of Jerry Falwell
At the age of 18 Jerry Falwell converted to Christianity. During
his youth he showed little interest in religion. Even after their
father’s death (due to alcoholism), at the age of 15, Jerry and his twin
brother still failed to attend religious services with their mother.
Instead she left the radio station tuned a program called “The Old-Time
Gospel Hour.” In 1956, Jerry started a church in Lynchburg, The Thomas
Road Baptist Church. It started off with 35 members and after a year
it had over 800 members. About a week after starting this church
Jerry had his own radio program and six months later he was on television.
His ministry that was started in 1956 has influenced the lives of millions
of people worldwide. A few years after starting his ministry, Falwell
married a pianist and fellow Christian, Macel Pate.
“Falwell is a self-proclaimed fundamentalist” (Hadden), who has set out to accomplish many goals. One of the most important is to see the world change through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thousands of bibles have printed and distributed to China, Russia, India and Cuba in order to help them gain better understanding of Jesus Christ.
