Gary is a member of our maintenance department and has the responsibility of maintaining of all facilities and systems in the church and school. Over the years, Gary has been a professional pilot, a flight instructor, a line check airman, and the owner of a construction company. This varied background prepared him well for his position here at Open Door.
He and his wife, Cindy, have been married since 2004. Cindy survived an automobile accident in 1983 and wasn’t supposed to ever walk or talk again, but God worked miracles in her life. She still suffers from short-term memory loss, but has come a long way since her accident. Gary has two daughters from a previous marriage, Casey and Jen.
When not at church, Gary spends most of his time working on and around his house that he and his friend built over the last several years. He is also really passionate about reading and studying the Bible. He knows that the Lord has broken into his life, in a big way, and has changed him from the inside out.
