Jerry Lawson is the founder and Lead Pastor of Daystar Church, located in North Alabama.
He met his wife, Leslie, in a small church in their hometown of Eufaula, Alabama. Next came college, ministry, and marriage, almost simultaneously. Along the way, God has blessed them with two beautiful girls and a son. But they found their destiny when they launched Daystar Church, along with about 100 wonderful people from Cullman, Alabama. Since that small beginning, the church has grown into a large, multi-site church, serving communities across North Alabama. Throughout the years, one thing has remained constant:
DAYSTAR CHURCH EXISTS TO SEE COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION THROUGH THE LOVE AND POWER OF JESUS CHRIST.
This church and its people have never been about numbers, but always about seeing the love and power of Christ transform individuals, families, and communities. Nothing gives Pastor Jerry more joy than seeing what Jesus can do for people who have lost all hope. He often says, “Every religion has its own ‘holy book’ and shares similar stories, but nobody else has a JESUS!” There truly is no one in the world like Jesus.
Pastor Lawson has also mentored hundreds of pastors through a twenty-four-month on-site training process called 24 to Double. Jerry is the President and CEO of 24 to Double and continues to serve other churches through this, not for profit ministry.
