Gerry Fry


Finding Freedom tells the very compelling story of pastor Gerald Fry’s journey to discover a secret so precious that it could only have been discovered in the furnace of affliction. Fry’s story will move you through laughter, tears, tenderness and the heartburst of revelation as he discovers the the timeless and life-changing secret behind Jesus’ words in Matthew 5 (“the Beatitudes”) and is brought near to the very heart of God.
