Say hello to Barry and Gerri Hickenbottom, the founders of Kergyma.

Meet our Founders.

Barry & Gerri Hickenbottom.

Barry and Gerri Hickenbottom have been married for over 45 years since they first met in a beach Church. They have ministered together for years and have consistently sought the leading of the Holy Spirit.

From the beach Church, Chapel by the Sea, they were involved in a Church that was part of the original grouping of Churches when the Vineyard Christian Fellowships began. They ministered with the Vineyard and John Wimber in California and also in Great Britain. They ministered in Toronto at Christian Fellowship during the revival there and ministered in Mozambique with Heidi Baker. Later they ministered at Expression 58 and traveled with Shawn Bolz on many prophetic conferences.

Their home was the site for a Bible Study that lasted 20 years and supported on unwed Mother’s Home where they taught a Bible Study for over 15 years. The training material and curriculum from these studies is being placed on this Home Page to support home group leaders in teaching the coming worldwide move of the Lord. The new leaders coming into the Kingdom of God will require many teachers to raise up the new Church.
