Jerry and Melanie Stone
Jerry and Melanie love God and they love people. Their desire is to share what God has graciously given to them to help grow the kingdom of God. As a ministry couple, Jerry and Melanie enjoy working as a team to reach out to people, encouraging men and women to go to the next level in God’s plan for their lives and ministry. Jerry and Melanie have experience at church planting, pastoring, missions, Bible schools and serving in a variety of supportive ministries. The Stones have been married since 1986 and have personally known God’s faithfulness through their own journey in their marriage, their family and through life. Jerry and Melanie have a heart to accept people at whatever stage of growth or restoration they are at. They believe in pursuing the Holy Spirit and relying upon Him to accomplish God’s plan and purpose. Jerry is especially passionate about ministry team building and outreach strategies. Melanie is enthusiastic about sharing written Christian resources to assist churches in their ministry.
Grow Churches was started by Jerry and Melanie Stone in July 2010 as a way to communicate with those believers who want to grow to reach their world. Through www.growchurches.com, we offer free resources by Jerry and Melanie, as well as applicable articles by contributing authors. The website is also a way to connect with Jerry and Melanie and to participate in church growth projects. The Lord has used Grow Churches to reach people in over 100 countries and has given us relationships with believers in nations around the globe. The faith, church and planting downloads have been accessed approximately 50,000 times, providing teaching materials and tools for churches of all sizes and cultures. Our prayer is that God will continue to use Grow Churches to help make His name known in the earth.
