Jerry’s Ministries

Chapters 10 and 11 of IN THE SECRET SERVICE describe Jerry Parr’s encounter with grace as his life took a sharp turn. As before, he risked his own safety to protect others, but now in surprising territory.

The Potter's HouseWhile still Assistant Director of the Secret Service, Parr began a Master’s program in Pastoral Counseling. Soon after retiring, he and his wife Carolyn  moved from the wealthy enclave of Potomac, MD  to Washington, DC. They began to attend The Church of the Saviour, whose pastor Gordon Cosby inspired members to develop hands-on friendships with the poor. Chapter 10 of IN THE SECRET SERVICE describes Parr’s journey from the White House to the Potter’s House and into the worlds of the “least of these.”
