Bruce A. Jerome grew up in Vermont and New Hampshire. While serving in the U.S. Army in 1973, he became a Christian through the testimony and the influence of a young lady and her believing family. This young lady became his wife in 1974. Together he and Grace have raised four children—a son and three daughters. They joyfully delight in their seven grandchildren and a successful marriage. Bruce was ordained in the 1980s. Becoming a youth pastor in 1982, Bruce has gone on to pioneer three churches, one in Colorado and two in New Hampshire. Aside from a period of about eighteen months, Bruce has been bi-vocational and has used these jobs to further his understanding of people and their need for solid, trustworthy guidelines to live successfully in Christ. Bruce has recently retired from a twenty-plus year career in healthcare. He also served for over sixteen years as a police officer, all while pursuing his greatest passion—the furtherance of the Gospel. He attributes any good that has come to his life as being completely based on the love shown to him by Jesus Christ and the light to his path, the Bible.
