In response to God’s blessing, Jerry Stoller decided to invest in the Lord’s Kingdom by creating the Stoller Foundation in 2006. Jerry’s vision for the Stoller Foundation is to be a needed catalyst to recruit the fishers of men to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission. Christ-centered ministries are the “ponds” we intend to build, and the beneficiaries of programming constitute the “fish”. The “fishers” are the volunteers who share their time, talent and treasures.
Jerry believes the Stoller Foundation’s calling is not just to enrich good programs or ministries, but rather to grow and nurture a generation of believers who are willing to get their hands dirty to serve others and the Kingdom of God.
