His message is authentic, his vision eclectic and his inspiration is electric. Born in South Africa, Gerard was a driven entrepreneur and businessman that owned two steak houses, a coffee shop, and a video store. He was called to the US in 1999 by the Lord. With a deep passion for ministry, his move to The United States of America was a natural fit for his life and vision. With encouragement from family and friends, Pastor Gerard founded and started his first church in 2000 with the help of five other people. Christ Family Church in Fort Pierce was started in 2014. In 2017, he founded Tradition Worship Center.
Gerard makes sure that all new guests, as well as faithful long-standing members of his congregation, feel welcomed, appreciated and valued while given the opportunity to express their gifts and talents in ways that they feel a deep sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. Gerard’s greatest passion is bringing the message of salvation, healing and hope to people that have been through, or are facing storms in life. He does this by strengthening their self worth through Jesus Christ and helping them to discover God’s unlimited potential for their lives.
In his free time, Gerard loves to play golf and spend time with the love of his life, his wife Donnelyn and their two children.
