Pastor/Lead Teaching Elder:
Married to: Gale
Hobbies: Spending time with my grandchildren, spending time in God's Word, and spending time with our family and friends!
Why I am a pastor: To set others free!
Thoughts: There is no greater joy in my life than knowing God and experiencing His love for me each day. I have been forgiven much over the years, and as a result, I have learned to love much. I have found that sharing His love with others is the greatest privilege a man could ever have in his lifetime. I have also learned that the greatest roles I will ever possess in this world as a man are those of husband, father, and grandfather.
Bernie and Gale previously were staff with Family Life in Arkansas, a national ministry for biblically-based marriages and families. Bernie also served as a pastor in Rhode Island for many years. Bernie and Gale are still active supporters of Family Life ministries, which is a great resource for Christian-based family life in the world today.

Thoughts: We are all special to the Lord and each one of us has a special gift to offer. "Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." - Matthew 9:37-38

Why I am a Worship Leader: There is nothing better than glorifying God and nothing more rewarding than seeing Him work among His people. It is such a blessing to be able to serve Creation Church.
Thoughts: Worship is contagious. I don't think there is much that thrills the heart of God more than hearing his children sing out to Him straight from their hearts. Jesus has made a way for us to praise God 24/7 for all eternity. Let's start today!
