About Gary
  • Education: Graduate with an M Div from Gordon Conwell, presently in the final (I hope) stages of a D Min from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.
  • Experience: Solo Pastor of small churches; one experience as head of staff. I’ve learned over the years NOT to poke fun at the: "We always did it that way." Because their WAY may in fact be a secret to getting God’s way in the church.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Enjoy, Use, Borrow, If it helps, it’s yours, I probably got it from someone else.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: One of your sermons that talked about "Worshipping the Right God, the Wrong Way, and Worshipping the Wrong God, the Right Way!"
  • One of my favorite illustrations: It really happened, a dear older lady met me at the door after church, told me how much she loved me, and the said, "Could I borrow one of your tapes, I sometimes have trouble sleeping." "And," I thought, "my tape will help you SLEEP?!"
  • Family: My family: Wife, Cheryl, graduate of Gordon Conwell T.S and preaching at a church nearby. Daughter, Joy, 2nd lieutenant in the army Son, John, runs his own lawn care business, employs 6. Son, Jacob, at Geneva College, Pa.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Dr. Kemper, preaching Prof. from Gordon, "Preach interestingly." If they fall asleep, all the best theology will be lost, your # 1 job must be the pragmatic KEEPING PEOPLE AWAKE!
  • Books that have had an impact: Biblical Theology, by Edmund Clowney; tapes and writings of the same man. A professor from Westminster Seminary in Phil.
  • Hobbies: Run, Climb Mtns., Weights, Eat!
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Remember Jesus and His Precious Blood!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: While Preaching a man passed out. He wasn’t dead, so it was funny. What was really funny is the paramedics had to go through 4 rows of parishoners before they found the right man. Not really, a guy really did pass out, church let out early that day, I guess I really "slayed" them that day.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Jesus Loves Me
