MINISTER | GOSPEL ARTISTE | SONG WRITER | PRODUCER |TV HOST
Evangelist Gerry Thompson is an ordained Minister of the Gospel, Songwriter, Producer and Gospel Artiste. He is well known throughout the world, especially in the Reggae and Caribbean communities; North American Markets (Canada, US), and European Markets.
Evangelist Thompson is a multi-talented individual with a powerful true-life testimony of change called, “Why I Put the Gun Down”. He is the Founder, CEO, and President of Vision of Truth Outreach Ministries, which he states is “a Ministry where a nobody becomes a somebody, because man’s reject is God’s project and who God hires, no man fires!”
Evangelist Thompson migrated to Canada from Jamaica at the age of eleven. He went through a period of culture shock trying to adjust to the Canadian culture and way of life, and had a difficult time adjusting to this and to his new family. Consequently, he gravitated towards negative influences of “street life” such as pimping, drugs and violence. He moved to Miami Florida at the age of 27 where he continued to be involved with negative influences.
However, Evangelist Thompson made a complete transformation when he was led by the Holy Spirit to a tent meeting church service in Miami Florida on a street called Ivey Lane. While he was on his way to kill a man with a 357 Magnum in his waist, God spoke to him, directed him to the church, where he put the gun down and gave his life to Christ. It has been over 30 years since Evangelist Thompson experienced that remarkable spiritual transformation.
Since accepting the Lord as his personal Saviour, Evangelist Thompson has a new outlook on life. He made a covenant that he would help others like himself - regardless of their race, color, or religion - who have turned to “street life”. As a result, he has reached millions around the world with his testimony and message of hope. Along his journey, he has never forgotten individuals he left behind in his past life. He will continue to try to assist them by helping them make positive changes that will empower their lives.
Evangelist Thompson makes it a priority to alert his public audience to the important needs of our young people. His countless voluntary work has included; motivational speaking at schools, community events, and one-on-one mentoring with young people in trouble with the law. He has accompanied young men to court whose parents have either given up on them, or who couldn't get time off work to attend their trials.
Evangelist Thompson continues to work with police community programs such as Crime Stoppers, in which he conducts crime and drug prevention workshops. He has received many citations, endorsements and awards from Crime Stoppers, United Achievers, Reggae Music Award, The School Board of Education, John Brooks Community Foundation, Roots Cultural Foundation, and The Black Coalition Committee. Many lives have been transformed through his Ministry while working with Prime Ministers, Presidents, Governmental Officials and other Community Leaders in their schools, special needs communities, gangs, prisons and churches.
Evangelist Thompson does not claim to have apprehended fame, but is always reaching out to individuals in the trenches. He has given up many opportunities to be rich and famous; but chose instead to be called a Servant of God, which is the greatest honor to be used to touch and change lives.
Evangelist Thompson has produced 12 CD’s consisting of over 200 songs, and over 300 DVD’s. His inspirational gospel repertoire includes Country Western, Reggae, Soca, Calypso and Soul.
