After serving as a physician for many years, Dr. Jay Wise retired in 1992 to help with the establishment of Peace Hill Christian Fellowship. Jay has been involved, in one way and another, with the church since his youth. As a young man Jay was a lay preacher and attended seminary for a year before turning to the study of medicine. Jay and Jessie spent time overseas in Haiti serving the poor in a mission hospital and then moved to Charles City in the 1970’s.
For a time Jay was a teaching elder in Faith House, a charismatic fellowship. During that time he and Jessie had many people come and live and meet in their home, and brought many to the Lord who went on to live faithful Christian lives. It was Jay’s vision to have a church here at Peace Hill. His desire has always been to have Peace Hill be a place of study, thought and discipleship.
Jay’s sermons reflect a lifelong commitment to the Lord and a lifetime of both pastoral and medical experience.
