Pastor Boles and Bishop Jerry Hutchins
After serving as senior pastor of Timothy Baptist Church, Athens, Georgia for nearly 25 years, Bishop Jerry F. Hutchins knew it was time for something different.
"We organized a Transition Team almost a year ago," said Bishop Hutchins, "and that team worked diligently, meeting twice each month, to work through the process and then making the formal presentation to the Church.
When the presentation was made, the church gave overwhelming approval."
The transition resulted in a successor, Pastor Tracy Boles, who will bec take the church forward, while Bishop Hutchins oversees the pastor's work.
According to Bishop Hutchins, the model is something that other churches have expressed a need for."
"There are hundreds, if not thousands, of pastors across the country who would like to be able to make a similar transition but simply don't have a vision for implementation.
Bishop Hutchins is available to help others organize and implement transitions of this nature.

Bishop Hutchins is a Great Spiritual Father, Teacher and Leader!
I am not sure if we realize it or not but he
is teaching us even in this transition how to hear, trust and move by the command of God's
Bishop Hutchins has been my Pastor since 2005 and when he announced the transition I rested on the words of my Pastor because I KNOW everything he does, everything he says and every step he makes is GOD INSPIRED AND GOD DIRECTED!
I am excited for Pastor Boles and can't wait to see and be apart of what God does next in the life of Bishop Jerry F. Hutchins!
Bishop Hutchins has always set a great example of leadership.
not only studies and loves the word of God
, but he
lives it out and teaches others how to do the same.
For those of us who are at a position in our lives when we must "hear from God"; Bishop Hutchins is nothing short of a true God Send.
Learning to pray and study brings us into a right relationship with God
that carries us through all situations.
A leader who knows The Word and willingly gives a dedicated effort to share his knowledge with other people who long to know God by understanding what the Bible says is God's gift to the world through Bishop Hutchins.
Bishop Hutchins because of you I strive for perfection.
Bishop Hutchins and Pastor Boles are at the forefront for Ministry transition.
Congratulations to Bishop Hutchins and Pastor Boles!
God never ceases to amaze me in using Bishop Jerry Hutchins as a willing vessel to forge and conquer new territories.
