Gary is a seventh generation Floridian, born in Plant City, Florida. He attended the University of Florida, graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University and Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Gary and his wife Susan live in Ocala where Susan is a teacher. They have two grown children and four grandsons.  
 

After pastoring in Jensen Beach, Florida for over thirteen years, Gary moved to Ocala to become the Director of Missions of the Marion Baptist Association. In 2004, Gary joined the staff of the Florida Baptist Convention.  
 

Gary’s role as regional catalyst is to connect with and engage churches, pastors and staff in areas of church planting, church revitalization, community ministries and other ways the convention can be “right beside” the churches. The partnership with local associations is an important relationship in serving churches throughout Middle Florida Baptist Association and all of north Florida.
