In January 2009, Gary was called to Community Bible Church to provide leadership as the Senior Pastor. He is focused on supplying spiritual nurturing to the growing congregation, while also providing a challenging preaching and teaching ministry. Community Bible Church maintains a spiritual influence on multiple church campuses in the region and enjoys a very influential online ministry presence.

Missions is deeply embedded in Gary's heart. He has been instrumental in proclaiming the Gospel in many nations among people devoted to many false gods. His unique preaching and teaching style cultivates a hunger for the Word of God in others.
