Baptized at the age of twelve, Gary Taylor started pastoral training at birth. The son of Rev. & Mrs. Horace Taylor, Gary observed first hand the duties, joys and sorrows of a pastor. When he entered Philadelphia College of Bible, now Carin University, he had already recognized his calling and seminary training was a part of the plan.
While in college, Gary met Lois Brown, another Pastor’s Kid. After graduation, with a BS in both Music and Bible, Gary and Lois were wed in July 1978. Immediately after the wedding, the couple headed west to Western Conservative Baptist Seminary in Portland, OR, where Gary received his Master of Divinity in 1982.
After leaving seminary, Gary became Pastor Taylor when he accepted the pastorate at Central Baptist Church in Millerstown, PA. He served at Central Baptist until accepting the pastoral yoke at First Baptist of Morrisville in 1989. He also added to his spiritual challenges in 1989 when he became a chaplain in the PA Army National Guard. He is currently with the Army Reserves and has served both in Kosovo and Kuwait under Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn.
Gary is the proud father of five, grandfather of one and shepherd to many more.
