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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
