About Mr. Kolwinska

Jerry Kolwinska ministered for 21 years in two Christian schools. Mr. Kolwinska taught a variety of composition and literature courses at the junior and senior high levels as well as serving as serving as the administrator during most of those years. The Kolwinskas were thrilled when the Lord opened the door for them to join the Maranatha family in 1994. Jerry Kolwinska and his wife, Marcele, have three children and four4 grandchildren. Mr. Kolwinska likes to read and garden, but his favorite pastime is creating model trains. Teaching is Mr. Kolwinska’s passion. “I often find myself walking across the campus marveling that God has given me this great opportunity to impact the lives of the next generation of Christian leaders,” he says. “I can’t imagine any other ministry that could be as satisfying and rewarding as the one God has given to me here at Maranatha.”
