Jerry Stoller spent his life finding ways to help good things grow. From his roots growing up on a farm to his days studying agronomy at the University of Illinois and Cornell, he’s always been energized and fascinated by the concepts of productivity and quality required to produce good outcomes.
Jerry Stoller founded the Stoller Group in Houston, TX, as the President and Chief Executive Officer in 1970. Jerry has developed a revolutionary approach that takes the guesswork out of maintaining healthy crops through the management of plant hormone levels and micronutrients throughout the plant growth cycle, maintaining optimum hormone balance. Through this process, maximum genetic expression is achieved, resulting in healthier plants better able to withstand the effects of stress under various conditions.
Jerry was able to revolutionize the agricultural industry, allowing people from all walks of life to better provide sustenance for their families. Jerry’s passion for encouraging healthy crops around the world led to international growth for his company. The Stoller Group currently provides its products and services to over 50 countries.
In response to God’s blessing, Jerry decided to invest in the Lord’s Kingdom by creating the Stoller Foundation in 2006. Jerry’s vision for the Stoller Foundation was 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 believed 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.
