Meet Pastor Jerry Harmon

Pastor Jerry Harmon


Pastor Jerry Harmon has been the pastor of Maranatha Baptist Church since the end of October, 2015.  He and his wife, Liz, have two boys – Nathaniel and Benjamin.  Nathaniel lives in the San Juan metropolitan area, and Benjamin lives with his parents.

The Harmons moved to Puerto Rico in February, 1990.  At the end of that year, they founded the Fundamental Baptist Church of Manati, PR, where Pastor Harmon led the church for over twenty-one years. They eventually came to Maranatha Baptist Church to work with Jim (the previous pastor) and Kelly Shelton in 2014.

Before becoming pastor, Pastor Harmon taught the adult Sunday School class, preached on Wednesday evenings, led the congregational singing and the choir, did much counseling, won several people to the Lord, and was faithful on visitation. Liz has also been very active in the ministry.  She is the church Secretary/Treasurer, sings in the choir as well as singing specials, and leads the children’s church ministry and the ladies’ Bible study.  She is also a full-time second grade teacher in a Christian school nearby. 

Ben is also a big help.  He does a lot of maintenance around our buildings and runs the sound system.
