Pastor; Vaughn & Redaina Reece
Pastor Reece is passionate about prayer, worship, discipleship and evangelism. He enjoys a contagious sense of humor, and strives to preach and teach the WORD of GOD to stir the soul, challenge the heart and inspire the mind of every spiritually hungry person attending GLC.
Together with his wife of 28 years, Redaina Reece, they are prayerfully living to fulfill our core purpose and mission.
The Reece's were both raised in pastors' homes. For 28 years they have served in various ministry capacities...youth ministry, music ministry, evangelism, and pastoral leadership; including traveling fulltime across North America ministering in local churches.
They have three awesome hard working children; Preston-25 years, Cameron-21 years, and Ashlyn-19 years old. The Reece's are thankful that their sons have both completed their Bachelor Degrees with high honors; respectfully in Criminal Justice and Civil Engineering and are both working fulltime. Their daughter is completing the last two years of her Bachelor's Degree in Accounting while working part-time. All three are passionately and faithfully serving within our church ministries. EMAIL
Bishop; William & Helen Burgess
Bishop Burgess has faithfully served in many capacities of ministry for over 50 years. He is known as a steadfast man of prayer and fasting. Together with the love of his life, Helen Burgess, they traveled fulltime across much of North America ministering through anointed sermons and worshiping in music.
In 1980, they felt a strong call of the Lord to this city and moved their young family to Shelton, WA. They began to successfully establish a new missionís work. Bishop Burgess was employed as a skilled tradesman welder in the first decade and a half while also pastoring full-time.
From those early years of sacrifice, and after faithfully pastoring for over 33 years, they retired in 2013 and transitioned to the honorary role of Bishop. In October, 2017 - after a long battle with Parkinson's Lewy Body Disease - Sister Burgess passed from this life to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. We will always love and cherish her legacy and memory. And we are so thankful that we still have Elder Burgess with us in GLC. They are wonderful examples of true followerrs of Jesus Christ.
