  • terry & Rosemary van gilder

    associate pastors circleemail

    Terry and Rosemary began fulfilling their call in pastoral ministry in 1978, attending Asbury Theological Seminary from which Terry received his Master of Divinity degree. 

    In the beginning their pastoral assignments were with small congregations. Now, more than 25 years of pastoring a variety of congregations from the small town, where you can become pastor to the whole community, to the bigger city churches and interacting with pastors of all denominations. 

    While participating in the Brownsville Revival the Holy Spirit reignited new fire in them in Pensacola, Florida. Through their ministry Terry has preached, taught and counseled on hundreds of subjects and events. Finding himself a pastor in the need of victory many years ago, he discovered freedom to live victoriously through applying the Word in his life. 

    Their lives are transparent and the teachings are practical and can be applied in everyday life. It is all under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Their testimony is truly the saving work of Jesus Christ. They believe, teach, and live the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven and no matter anyone's background or mistakes, God has a place for them in His purpose and can help them on their path to enjoying their call to ministry in everyday life.
