Board member Rev. Jerry Bimber has served as pastor at Lombard Church of the Nazarene in Illinois since 1996. His father is also a pastor, so Rev. Bimber has been around the ministry his entire life. He attended Hobe Sound Bible College for three years, received his bachelor’s degree from Malone College, and earned Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
In addition to his participation on numerous church committees, Rev. Bimber has been an active member of several boards. He is a longtime member and past president of the Lombard Lions Club. For 12 years, he served on the school board in Villa Park, Illinois, acting as board secretary as well. Since 2014, Rev. Bimber has been a board member with the Carl F.H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding.
“I have as my life purpose to serve the Lord in whatever capacity He directs me,” Rev. Bimber shares, “And He has placed in my heart a love for the ministry of Reach A Village.”
