Speaker: Jerry Goodell

Jerry and Kati Goodell have worked with children and families for the past 45 years in various areas of ministry.  They have both been teachers -- Kati in a Christian school and Jerry in the public school.  Jerry was pastor at Church at the Mall in Lakeland, Florida for 20 years serving in the areas of Children's Pastor, Pastor of Education, Pastoral Care and Counseling, and Associate Lead Pastor.  Presently they work on the staff at Gitche Gumee each summer as campus pastor, teaching at their home church in Lakeland, Florida, and speaking at Christian educational conferences.  They seek to seek to serve the Lord by helping families to grow together in their faith and by encouraging them to balance their lives in a way that is pleasing to the Lord.
