Gerard & Jeannie Long

In thirty-nine years of marriage, Gerard and Jeannie Long have come to know and love God in a profound way. It’s this love that has enabled them to persevere through any parent’s worst nightmare and to now have even more love for Jesus Christ and for each other.

They’ve experienced success and wealth based on the values of the world and also the deepest grief and suffering from the death of two of their three children. On their journey, God has revealed His grace and glory to them in extra ordinary ways. In particular, they’ve experienced how God is able to redeem the most painful are as of our lives and turn them around for good. Gerard has caught a deep awareness of eternity and Jeannie has experienced God’s presence and glory when she was close to ending her own life. Their marriage has triumphed when all seemed lost and they’ve learnt valuable lessons on their unbelievable journey. And, they have a very clear message of God’s calling for each Christ follower to obey the Great Command and the Great Commission.
