We would like to go to give you more about the background history of our founder(s) so that you can get a really good idea of where the Tulsa Batting Cages originally came from. We already told you a good amount of his back history from time is a child, but we have a couple more details to share with you about him. So, Jerry was in the process of changing jobs every five years or so because he could not find a good fit for him. At this point, he ended up in airline maintenance and he had over 250 employees. Even so, this is the point when he felt like he was in fulfilled and he really was not serving the purpose he was meant for.
Many years before the Tulsa Batting Cages that we have today is a time where Jerry began to spend a lot of time working with youth and high school teams. Eventually, he went on in life-changing mission trip to Nicaragua. This is the point at which God waited on his heart to take the initiative to collect baseball equipment. He just felt the overwhelming urge to do so and so he followed that out and listen to God. From this point, the Lord continues to open doors and what Jerry Jacobson would do this faithfully walk through these.
Time after time he was able to see the many blessings because she was following the call of God in his life which ended in Tulsa Batting Cages. So, for many years he was developing all the necessary formulas for what use ultimately about to do. After his missions trip, he began to regularly attend missions trips, satisfying a burning desire that he had given from God himself. He wanted to fulfill this desire but more importantly, one to fulfill his destiny and the purpose that was set before him.
Jerry just really sees a based logic tool to be able to reach thousands around the world. Jerry also has a son who was in the U.S. Army and he and his wife continue to inspire others to seek the Lord and see his potential in any given situation. They literally use the gifting that they have to help people find good things that are given to them from God. Once people realize that they have specific gift things that are meant to achieve a purpose and then they will start her fulfillment in their life.
People need to know that they actually are doing something that is going to mean something when they or something that actually matters. Now, we understand fully that there is not much more opportunity for hope once this life is over. This is why we put all of our faith in a God and we believe everything he says at our core. The fact of the matter is that if we are wrong and there is no God then absolutely nothing happens and we’re in the same position before. But, if we are right and the people think there is no God are wrong then they are the ones who are going to be in trouble.
