Pastors & Staff

Kurt Weber


Together in ministry with God’s People at GVLC, we minister to people, here and abroad, sharing the love of God and proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior to those who do not know Him.  This is our mission and ministry so that all people might know His forgiving love and that they might  know that He has prepared a place for them with Him in heaven.
