Gabe serves at FUMC Decatur outside of Ft Worth Texas. He went from a single bachelor youth director to a husband and dad of 4, later adding a niece. He has served in small towns or 6,000 to San Antonio to now a town projected to explode as the D/FW area expands. As someone who has little time, he strives to empower others in the church to embrace their gifts, be willing to be equipped and resourced to serve and take their place along side him in serving their community.

Gabe’s LEAD talk topic: Ministry is hard already! But doing it with a family in a fast changing world is harder. How does success look? How do you survive?
