Treehouse Leadership Team

Pastor Jerry Wirtley – Campus Pastor

Jerry Wirtley joined Treehouse as Campus Pastor in March of 2020.  Pastor Jerry Wirtley first felt called to ministry during his undergraduate work in music performance but did not follow the call at this time. He went on to finish his Bachelor of Music degree in music performance on electric bass in Jazz studies at Morehead State University in Morehead, KY in 1994. He continued on at Morehead in Jazz performance studies and received his Master’s of Music Performance in Jazz in December of 1995. It was in college at Morehead that he met the love of his life, Krista.  Krista and Jerry were married in 1996, and shortly after this moved to North Carolina.

In North Carolina, he felt the call to ministry again, and after attending a Via de Cristo weekend September 13 – 16, 2001 he gave in to the call and prepared for seminary. He moved his family to Pennsylvania and attended The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg where he graduated with a Master’s of Divinity in 2006. Since his ordination, he has served a congregation in the Northwestern Ohio Synod, the Southwestern Texas Synod, the East Central Synod of Wisconsin, and the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod.

He is married to Krista, and they have 3 beautiful girls. You can send him an email at
