Jerry Tyson

Activities Center Coordinator


After working for Duke Energy for thirty-eight years, I retired in January 2018. During the interim, I worked a few part-time jobs and kept myself busy with home projects. I love being a member of the Chancel Choir and Security Team and felt called to expand my serving by joining the Tuesday Night Feeding Team, the Missions and Ministry Committee, and the Diaconate. I am thankful for another opportunity to serve God in a new role, welcoming all those that will come through the doors of the Activities Center will the love of Christ.
