 Gary joined the ministry team of Pleasant City Church in September 2006. Although he is an Ohio native he now calls Shelby his home. At the age of 16, Gary realized his need for Jesus and through faith accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Gary and his wife Heidi have three married children and six grandsons.  Gary’s passion as an Associate Pastor is to see relationships with Christ at such a level that relationships with others grow, and discipleship through “Connect Groups” becomes the heartbeat of Pleasant City Church. Through God’s Word we can learn to love God, “CONNECT” with others, and reach the world.

Being raised in a Christian family and attending church his entire life, he always had a belief in God but in High School realized his dire need for a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Christian attended UNC Charlotte and graduated with a bachelor’s in Finance thinking he would go into a career in banking but God had other plans.
