Gary grew up in the area and attended Lake Zurich high school. As a freshman he was presented the gospel by a Youth for Christ director and he accepted Jesus into his heart in Burger king of all places. Gary went on to participate in Campus Life being a student leader and eventually coming on staff with Youth for Christ. Gary helped plant a church in Lombard and was the Worship Pastor there for 6 years. God called Gary into independent music so he with his band “a gain of ten” pursued a life of ramen noodles and long van rides for a period of time.
In 2015 God started talking to Gary about leading worship again and he felt called to Springbrook. Gary is currently the Worship director at Springbrook and is excited to see what God has done and will do at Springbrook moving forward. Gary is passionate about worship and the bride of Christ.
