Senior Pastor

Ron Garascia

Brother Ron was born in St. Louis and graduated from Cleveland High School and graduated from Washington University, St. Louis with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He married his childhood sweetheart Kathleen Giamalva in July, 1968. The Lord has blessed them with three children and seven grandchildren. 

Brother Ron felt the call of the Lord on his life at a very young age.  He was appointed Sunday School teacher in 1975 and became Youth Leader and eventually Youth Pastor in February, 1989. In 1994 by the leading of the Holy Spirit, the Pastor, Louis Sanazaro asked Brother Ron to be his assistant. Several years later in 1998 Pastor Louis Sanazaro passed away and Brother Ron then assumed the mantel of Pastor of the church.

For a few years Brother Ron maintained his position as Engineer at Monsanto and as full time Pastor. Then the Lord made possible an opportunity for an early retirement in 2002.  This was a great answered prayer to allow him to devote full time to the ministry.

Today Brother Ron is continuing, with the leading of the Lord, to preach the Full Gospel and be the Shepard of the church.
