Kerry Pickard Give Now
In 2001 Kerry Jo was appointed as a long-term missionary to Russia with Global Partners. She has lived in Vladimir, Russia, since 2003. Prior to her long-term appointment, she served with Global Partners as GO-Net missionary in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, (1998-99) and with Global Partners CoMission in Ryazan, Russia, (1994-97).
At the age of 11, Kerry Jo became interested in missions while on a trip with her parents to Haiti to visit a missionary couple. As she grew up, God continued to bring this idea back to her. He used many people and situations in her life to confirm his calling for her.
Kerry Jo wants to be a source of God's grace to a lost and hurting world by encouraging, respecting, affirming, and serving those God puts in her path. In Vladimir, Kerry Jo is involved in discipleship, church and leadership development, and ministries of compassion. Much has changed in Russia since 1994 but not the need for God's grace.
Let your conversation always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone (Colossians 4:6 NIV).
