Who We Are

Jerry and Judy share a love for each other that began in high school and grew even stronger during their college days at Wake Forest University.  Judy majored in English Education and Jerry played football.  He was so valuable to the game that he was a “Who’s Who” nominee in American Colleges and Universities.

They married after graduation and went into education – Jerry as a coach and teacher and Judy as teacher and counselor.  They have 2 daughters and sons-in-law and 8 grandchildren, some of whom have traveled with them to Israel, Turkey, Fiji, and on many US missions of prayer.

In 1999, they had a vision of darkness pressing in on all sides, but were encouraged by the Lord, who is the Breaker of Dawn, to not look back.  Since then, they have been engaged in fulltime international ministry, preaching the gospel and networking with others on 5 different continents who want to see God’s Kingdom come upon the earth even as it is in heaven.

What We Do

Jerry and Judy are intercessors, bringing other intercessors together as they stand on the Word in corporate agreement. Teams assembled under their leadership have traveled world-wide, praying for events and the peoples of nations.

God has given them a special mandate for Israel, and they have placed their feet on its soil 26 times.  Sixteen of those trips have been with the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem (ICEJ) for the sole purpose of interceding for the 7,000 people and 60 different nations during the Feast of Tabernacles.

National prayer events and conference calls, seminars, and conferences have brought them into lasting relationships with other like-minded ministries such as Promise Keepers, Aglow, End-Time Handmaidens, Dutch Sheets, and Bob Weiner.

They are also connected with Dr. John Benefiel through the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, and have served as host committee members with the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC, who supports Israel’s right to exist as a modern nation based on Christian Judeo Biblical facts.

Jerry and Judy are long standing members of America’s National Prayer Committee (NPC), supporting and networking with Dave Butts and working closely with Dick and Dee Eastman at Every Home for Christ, Shirley Dobson, Lisa Crump, John Bornstein, and many other state leaders for the National Day of Prayer, as well as Dave Kubal, President of Intercessors for America.

Jerry and Judy are passionate for the college students of America, and have joined forces with Bob and Rose Weiner of Youth Now, Lou Engle and the Call, and Dave Warn of Collegiate Action events at Yale and Ignite Ivy.  These events are designed to attract student leaders from around the country who want to go deeper with Jesus and see God transform their college campuses.

What We Believe

We believe salvation comes through the blood of Jesus, that everyone is created with a divine purpose which is to fulfill the call of God on their life to their generation as led by the Holy Spirit, and that every Christian is called to bless Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

We believe that Jesus, who is the Breaker of Dawn, destroyed all darkness and the power of sin, and that the works of the devil, the world, and the flesh have been defeated forever by His shed blood on the cross.

We believe that we can enter into the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus to make intercession according to His will by the power of the Holy Spirit in us. It is in this position that we are transformed and empowered to make the declarations that will bring His Kingdom to earth as it is in heaven, changing nations and people by the faith of Jesus.
