Pastor Gerald (Jerry) Morris

Jerry Morris has been the sole pastor of First UMC since 2011. Jerry grew up in Singapore, where his parents were missionaries, and went to college in Oklahoma and seminary in Kentucky. He and his wife Rebecca have been in Wisconsin since 1998. Before becoming a pastor, Jerry was a professor of Hebrew Bible at both the college and seminary levels. He is also the author of a series of Young Adult books set within the world of Arthurian legend (“The Squire’s Tales”). From both perspectives – Hebrew Bible scholar and novelist – Jerry believes deeply that we need less theological debate and more storytelling in church.


Jerry and Rebecca have three adult children: William, Ethan, and Grace.
