Pastor Gary Bryant
Position: Youth Pastor
Family: Dad to 4 boys!
Testimony: Although I received Jesus at a young age, it was not until my college years that I realized that God had called me to vocational ministry. While serving as a Youth Pastor in a local church as well as serving in a parachurch ministry, I (like so many others) was hurt by church leadership and ended up walking away from ministry, church and ultimately God for nearly two decades. My life spiraled out of control until 2010 when, on the floor of a dirty jail cell, God met me where I was at and showed me that He is a redemptive God and that His gifts and callings are irrevocable. I am forever grateful to have a loving Father who pursues me relentlessly and never gives up on me!
Hope for Covenant Church:
Love God and love people. It’s that simple. I want to be a part of a community that sees people the way God sees them. The way He saw me and relentlessly pursued me even when I was at my worst.
Favorite Verse: Psalm 139
To know that God has always been, and will always be with me. To know that I was fearfully and wonderfully made even before the foundation of the earth!
