Dr. Gary E. Gilley
Our Pastor, Gary Gilley, has been pastoring Southern View Chapel in Springfield, Illinois for over 30 years. He is the most driven individual we have ever met and a man who truly loves the Word of God.
Along with his preaching and teaching ministry, Pastor Gary is also the author and general editor of the monthly contemporary theological issues publication "Think on These Things." He has authored several books including, "I Just Wanted More Land Jabez," "This Little Church Went to Market, This Little Church Stayed Home" and "Is That You Lord?"
Pastor Gilley received his B.A. from Moody Bible Institute and his M.B.S. and Th.D. from Cambridge Graduate School. He and his wife Marsha have two adult children, Ben and Brian, and three grandchildren.
In addition to speaking at various conferences throughout the country and overseas, Pastor Gilley serves on the board of the Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission and the advisory board of Personal Freedom Outreach.
Two weeks ago today we nearly lost our dear Pastor to a Staph infection of the blood. Only by God's grace and the many prayers of the Elders, church members, friends and family was he spared.
We would like to take this opportunity to tell Pastor Gary how much we truly appreciate him. We can't imagine what it would be like without him as our leader. We just praise God for his continued hand of healing and look forward to the time he is strong enough to resume his full duties.
