- Founder and Senior Pastor of Daystar Church
- CEO of 24toDouble.com
Jerry Lawson has distinguished himself as a premier church leader in the state of Alabama. His obvious passion for the local church is apparent in all that he does. In January 2002, Jerry and Leslie Lawson launched Daystar Church in Cullman, Alabama, with a core of fewer than 100 people. Since that time, Daystar has seen unprecedented growth. Today, with a congregation of several thousand, worshiping across multiple campuses in Alabama and over 200 campuses in Uganda, Daystar continues to grow rapidly, reaching those overlooked by most churches.
Pastor Jerry currently mentors hundreds of churches through 24toDouble and provides free training to thousands more every year in more than 21 countries. Pastor Lawson continues to be in demand as a guest speaker and trainer both nationally and internationally, particularly on the subjects of leadership, church growth, and church revitalization.
Modern statistics prove that the American church is in decline. And recent surveys reveal that pastors and their families are also in crisis. This reality is a far cry from Christ’s plan for His Church. We are experiencing these frightening trends because we are not following Christ’s model for the Church. From scripture, this session will reveal the changes needed in the local church as well as show the systems and strategies that are working in many life-giving and growing churches around the world.
