Pastor Jerry Hatfield grew up in Michigan, but found his wife, Bonnie, when he moved to Texas City in 1967.  Together they met the Lord in 1975, and Jesus has been their 'passion' ever since.  Because of their personal struggles with stressful life events and difficult circumstances, they have become especially sensitive to the hurts of others and have a heartfelt compassion for those who are 'wounded'.  Pastor Jerry trained for ministry at Abundant Life School of Ministry and Berean School of the Bible.  He has attended the Jack W. Hayford School of Pastoral Nurture and has earned his Doctorate Degree in Theology and Biblical Studies from Grace Bible College and Seminary.  Pastor Jerry and Bonnie have pastored Turning Point Church (Hosanna! Christian Center) since the Lord founded this work in 1992.  One of their special giftings is in the area of marriage and family counseling, having received training through the American Association of Christian Counselors.  Jerry and Bonnie are blessed with three children and seven grandchildren.


    The pastor is assisted by an Advisory Council made up of Elders and Deacons.
