Gerald and Jennifer Volk are the parents of six incredible children and one son-in-law. They are also now grandparents! Gerald grew up on a farm outside of Logan, Iowa. Jennifer spent most of her childhood in a preacher’s home in Kimball, Minnesota. They both went to Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri and graduated with degrees in ministry. Together they have been in ministry since 1992, working in six states throughout the Midwest.
Gerald has served as a prison chaplain in Missouri as well as in various church roles as a youth pastor, family life pastor, and preaching minister. Jennifer has worked supporting the family as a sign language interpreter, donut baker and Certified Nurse Assistant. She is currently employed with Prairie Lakes Hospital in Watertown as a Telemetry Tech in the Critical Care Unit. The Volks started their ministry in Watertown in November of 2010. They fell in love with Watertown Christian Church and the Watertown community very quickly and look forward to being here for many more years.
Life verse: Philippians 1:27 “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ.”
- Gerald – Woodworking, weightlifting, hunting, fishing, motorcycling, four-wheeling, kayaking, shooting, reading, and talking. I also love being a dad and a grandpa--of course with 6 children, you had better love it! By the way, I am a huge Nebraska Cornhusker football fan.
- Jennifer – Scrapbooking, sign language, being a MOM and GRANDMA, and spending time with friends and family.
