Gary attended church through much of his childhood, but he was not saved until he was nearly sixteen years old. God opened his eyes to the weightiness of His sin and the wonderful work of Jesus Christ on the cross to atone for that sin. Upon graduation high school Gary enrolled in the College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Christian Studies with a minor in Student Ministry. Gary has been blessed with the opportunity to teach varying age groups from young children to the elderly. Gary was blessed to marry Lindsey in December, 2011. They welcomed their firstborn, Ellie, into the world on May 7, 2015. Lindsey and Gary blog at #trafficbybuff.
