Pastor Jerry Butcher is the founding pastor of Crossroads. Having grown up in NE Ohio, Jerry returned "home" in 1990 after college and a 10-year ministry in Dallas, TX. He felt God leading him into full-time ministry while attending college at Liberty University in Virginia. He laughs as he admits at that time, he was too quiet to lead in silent prayer.
After 18 years of youth ministry, Jerry again felt the Lord's leading to begin a church in the Doylestown area. In December of 1997, Crossroads was born as 28 people (most of whom were children) gathered for worship in the basement of Jerry's home. Fifteen years later, Crossroads has grown into the church home for 750+ worshippers from 20 different surrounding towns/cities.
Jerry uses his wit and energy to convey the truth of the Bible. He loves to dream about the church, and he loves Sundays at Crossroads. In his spare time he enjoys his children, grilling out, and reading. Jerry and his wife, Melinda, have four "almost grown" children and a son-in-law.
