The body of Christ is blessed with such diversity and incredible stories of redemption. Jerry Parks, at 74 years of age, is one such individual. As the rebellious son of a preacher, Jerry did some stupid stuff in his young adult years that had him facing the gas chamber---only to be released from San Quentin Prison just a few years later, thanks to the prayers of his dad and the redemptive work of Christ.
Sometimes we hear these younger-year stories of redemption and wonder how things worked out in the long run. We love how Jerry and his wife Demeris have lived such fruitful lives for Jesus, and how they love telling others of His redeeming grace.
