Jerry & Yolanda Cleffi: Former Assemblies of God Ministers
Jerry was baptized Greek Orthodox as a child. He mother was Orthodox and his father Catholic but he did not grow up attending church. Yolanda was reared Catholic but left the Church and became active in the Assembly of God, where she met Jerry, who had returned to the Lord in that congregation. They were marred and both felt called to ministry. They were both ordained as Assembly of God ministers, where they served 22 years, planting new churches. While building a new church building, Yolanda became burnt out and went to a retreat at a Carmelite monastery, where she began to rediscover her Catholic roots. This began their journey back home to the Catholic Church.
