Our Minister

Rev. Jerry Troyer has studied New Thought and Religious Science since 1989, and became senior minister of the Church in 2005.

Rev. Jerry came from traditional Christianity with a belief in a separate, judgmental God.  He struggled with his relationship with Spirit, questioning many of the core beliefs of traditional religion.

Religious Science teachings have allowed him to heal his relationship with his Higher Power, releasing habits that no longer serve him, and embracing the truth that he is the beloved of God, just as everyone else is, too.

Rev. Jerry is an interesting and motivational speaker.  Sunday talks are presented with knowledge of New Thought principles, the New Testament empowering teachings of Jesus, with a touch of humor.

He is also available for Practitioner work (spiritual counseling), as well to conduct weddings, holy unions, baptisms, memorial services and other sacred ceremonies.

In the community, Rev. Jerry is a volunteer at The San Diego LGBT Community Center.

Rev. Jerry and his life partner of more than 26 years, Jerry Collins, live in La Mesa with their Golden Retriever “Roxie.”
