The Impact of 38 Years of Ministry

Where does one begin when describing how Tom Oyler has affected your life after 38 years of ministry?  We will begin with these words that come to mind when we think of him: faithful, real, effective, approachable, knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind, & sensitive, just to name a few.

Listening to Tom teach the Bible has been one of the most influential & powerful tools in our spiritual growth.  He challenged us to study & memorize God’s Word. He helped us to see the deep love of Christ.  He lives what he preaches.  He walks the walk. 

Leslie’s gentle “behind the scenes” spirit has been such a blessing to us.  Her ministry to the “little ones” for all those years was amazing. All the children at GFC knew who Ms. Leslie was & couldn’t wait to be in her class.

We watched Tom & Leslie go through deep, dark times & rely on God’s mercy & grace to see them through.  Their faith strengthened ours.

We are so thankful that God chose them to minister at GFC & we pray that Tom & Leslie will continue to bless others lives as they have blessed ours!
