Are we here as part of the church to bring about paroxysm? Do you know what that word is? How do we make it happen and what should be the result of paroxysm? Listen as Mr. Gary Smith defines this word and covers the topic "Stir Up Love and Good Works".
Gary Smith was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but spent most of his youth in the Pasadena, California area. He graduated from Ambassador College in 1976 and he and his wife, Liz, moved to Peoria, Illinois. For the next six years he worked as a nursing home administrator in Illinois, Ohio, and Texas.
In 1982, he and Liz began to serve in the full-time ministry. Since that time, they have served in a number of congregations in the Midwest.
Gary and Liz now pastor in Houston, Texas near their two children and grandson.
