About the Speaker

Pastor Gary and his wife Erica have three young adult children (Gary, Ben and Sierra). Erica is from Northern California and Gary is from Maine. “PG” as he is often called enjoys long walks in the woods, reading the Bible, going on dates with his wife and talking with God.

Pastor Gary has served as a Bible teacher, chaplain, youth pastor, district pastor and most recently as the Texas Conference Youth Director. His motto is “making ministers for the Master.” He loves seeing young people “rightly trained” and empowered to be God’s army of youth.

Gary has traveled around the world preaching the Three Angels Message and inspiring young people to do the same. Some of his messages can be viewed at rightlytrained.org and youngtexasadventist.org. Pastor Gary’s gifts are encouragement, preaching and leadership and he daily seeks to “walk in the Spirit” so that he can be a contagious reflector of Christ.

His favorite Bible verse is 1 John 4:9 (NKJV), “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.”
