Jerry Peters, Jr. retired in 1999 as a result of injuries sustained in the line of duty as a United States Marshal. He is founder and director of Operation Life Support and Integrity Ministries. Both organizations focus on helping other through the trials of life and crisis events, in addition to encouraging a stronger walk with Christ. Jerry is also an ordained minister and a chaplain. He has held positions as a senior pastor, missionary, evangelist and keynote speaker. His mission is sharing the Gospel of Christ with the lost and encouraging believers to greater obedience to God. His goal is to use his many life experiences to help others understand the mission that God has for their life as they develop the warrior spirit that all believers should exhibit. During his career as a United States Marshal, Jerry was involved in many high threat assignments that included: witness protection, fugitive apprehension, dignitary protection, anti-terrorism, and other mission related duties of his position. During that time, he developed a sense of honor and duty to the United States that still exists today. However, his career also exposed him to an overwhelming view of the despair and hopelessness that exists in every part of our world. Aft er experiencing personal tragedy, God placed a desire in his heart to help others. This has been accomplished by combining his Christian upbringing, spiritual sensitivity, tactical training, and street experience. God has given Jerry a direct and honest approach that is effective in ministering to people and encouraging them to a closer walk with Christ. This approach allows him to share God's message of hope to the hurting and the lost. Just as God has promised, God has taken a tragedy of life and turned it into an opportunity of ministry for the glory of His kingdom. In recent years, Jerry has continued his commitment to our freedoms by working under the U.S. Department of State in support of anti-terrorism programs. These programs help other nations develop the personnel needed to fight this plague of destruction that affects our entire world. As a subject matter expert, Jerry has assisted in the development of programs related to anti-terrorism, counter-narcotics, tactical response (SWAT), border security, and dignitary protection. In addition, he completed three tours in Afghanistan as an embed advisor, providing services through Department of Defense and State Department programs. These positions have allowed him to not only raise the necessary funds to operate the non-profit organization mentioned, but also afford him great opportunity to minister and share the message of Jesus Christ with military personnel and others throughout the world. Jerry views this ministry effort as a mission. It is a mission to win the lost and revive the church. A mission that will result in eternal goals as directed by the will of God no matter what the cost. He has taken his attitude of the warrior spirit and redirected it from serving Country to serving God. He uses the same aggression toward his spiritual enemy that he used against those who were the enemies of the people of the United States of America and the world. Throughout his life, Jerry and his family have endured many tragedies, including the combat disability of their son during the war in Iraq. In all of the tragedy that Jerry has faced, he has learned this one important message: God has a plan that has been promised to each of us in Jeremiah 29:11, 'For I know the plans that I have for you, ' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.'
"If you do not believe that our churches need a wakeup call you can ignore this book. On the other hand its message could head us in the right direction". John Ashcroft - Former United States Attorney General "Jerry Peters is not some theologian viewing life from an academic tower. He is a warrior for Jesus Christ. Fueled by an intense passion to serve others, this seasoned veteran of the Lord's Army combines biblical truth with lessons forged through personal experience in the trenches of life to provide a practical manual for spiritual warfare. Each of the nine chapters of Tactical Christianity contains practical "how to" lessons necessary for victorious Christian living. Never one for political correctness, Jerry's loving, but no nonsense approach offers helpful insights for anyone desiring to serve effectively as a Christian warrior in today's world". Scott McChrystal CH (COL), USA Ret., Mil/VA Rep & Endorser "Sublime, raw, vulnerable, honest and victorious... I use these words not for his powerful book, Tactical Christianity, but for my co-laborer in Christ, Rev Jerry Peters. Many a minister writes out of what they meditate on but they never 'let you in' to their personal experience. Jerry bids all that know him to join with him on his own journey of redemption & healing, of experiencing Christ in raw intimacy & honest vulnerability. He does this after journeying as law officer, soldier, pastor, faithful husband and friend...one who has truly gone thru the valley of the shadow of death. He is tough, yet kind...honest, but merciful. He has challenged & blessed me more than I can ever tell him, and seeing his passion for the Lord and His people inspires me to pour thru what the Lord has anointed him to write. I am grateful for his friendship, and commend him to all who would hear what the Lord is saying thru Him, either thru his speaking or thru his latest devotional..."
