(1 Corinthians 10:31, Matthew 28:19-20)

     Pastor John Gilliland and his wife Tracy have been serving FBC Emery since July 2016.  They came to us from Hollywood Florida, just outside of Miami.
     John received his Master of Divinity in 2010. 
     Tracy is the K-12 voice teacher in the Bridgewater-Emery School district.
     Both John and Tracy have a passion for serving God wherever He leads them.  And fortunately, they both enjoy the snow.
     John’s passion is education and equipping.  He loves to teach the Bible and train others to do the same.  John is also available for the people of our community whenever there is a need.  Just reach out and he will do whatever he can to help.
     We are excited to see what God will do in and through our church as we study His word together and look for opportunities to join God in His mission in our community.
