JERRY FALWELL - TIMELINE 2 Jerry Falwell - Timeline Jerry Falwell led a very interesting life. His love for God and his country was established at an early age and influenced him throughout his lifetime. He was unafraid to voice his opinion and he was loved and detested depending on who you ask. His public battles were fought in the name of religion and morality and provided controversy and labeled him a radical. He became an influential personality in American politics and religious circles. 1933, August 11 – Jerry and his twin brother Gene are born in Lynchburg, VA. His mother, Helen, was extremely religious while his father, Carey, was an atheist. His father was an alcoholic and died when Jerry was 15. 1952 – While he was in college he attended a church service at Park Avenue Baptist Church in Lynchburg. At this service he became a born-again Christian. This experience changed his life and he took the advice of his pastor and transferred to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.
