At ALCC, Gabe is Associate Pastor of Worship and Youth Ministries. He delights to see individuals and the church grow in their passion for Christ and compassion for others through worship and Kingdom living. As worship leader, he has experienced a new birth of ALCC’s worship team, which continues to enjoy tremendous growth in its call to cultivate the Spirit’s Presence in the community. As youth pastor, Gabe is founder of the GLOW Youth group, which he oversees alongside the ALCC Young Adult ministry. His great passion is to help raise this generation to their true identity in Christ and empower them to bring His Kingdom to the earth through their lives. Pastor Gabe enjoys preaching the Gospel, baptizing and making disciples, and healing evangelism as a way of life. He loves people, outdoor adventures, and cooking for family and friends.
Before Christ, Gabe lived as a medical doctor until a relapse into drug addiction led him to a life of crime, jail time, homelessness, and utter brokenness. Many failed attempts at rehab and recovery left him hopeless and desperate enough to call upon the Almighty for help. Then, a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit granted him new life, deliverance, healing, and the freedom of sonship. Through the Word and his walk with Christ, Gabe cherishes the blessing of being a son of God and the richness of Kingdom living.
By His grace, our Father has restored and transformed Gabe’s family, redefining his union with his amazing wife Liesl and their precious daughter Amani. Together they partner as an unstoppable force to fulfill their Kingdom mission.
