Brother Gary surrendered to the ministry after beginning a career in the agriculture and oil and gas industries. His favorite part of ministry is witnessing others receive the saving grace of Jesus Christ and growing in the knowledge of the Lord. He has been married to Carolyn for over 30 wonderful years. They have two sons, Clayton and Travis, a daughter-in-law Rebecca, and one grand daughter, Maggie.
Brother Gary had the privilege of serving as pastor to a congregation in Missouri and one in Texas before coming to Trinity in 2012. He received a BBA from LeTourneau University, a Master of Divinity from Midwestern Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
As a hobby, Brother Gary teaches online courses for several universities and he and Carolyn enjoy leisurely motorcycle rides through the piney woods of East Texas.
