Rev. Dr. Jeri-Lynne Bouterse, Interim Pastor
First, many people have difficulty pronouncing our last name, Bouterse. It usually helps if you know that Bouterse rhymes with routers. Please feel free to call me Jeri-Lynne or if you prefer Pastor Jeri-Lynne. I received my undergraduate degree is in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from University of Central Florida. My Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry in the Reformed Focus are from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary where I also completed my Interim Ministry training. Assisting churches through their time of transition is my calling and passion. My husband David and I moved to Columbus, Ohio in 2014. Although we are no longer Pittsburgh residents we are still Steelers, Penguins and Pirates fans! We have three adult sons: Dylan (wife Karla), Brian (wife Jackie), and Brad (wife Lisa). David and I love to travel, ride our motorcycle (a Honda Valkyrie), read, gather for meals with family and friends, and borrow our grand dogs Sonny, Baxter, and Blitz.
