From a human perspective bigger is better. More is better than less. Bigger is better is not always the way it is from Gods point of view. Carnal nature tends to divide us. Divisions in the church are there to prove us, to determine if we are genuine. How we handle division in the church displays our maturity, our genuiness. Listen as Mr. Gary Smith speaks on how to handle division in the sermon titled "The Day of Small Things".
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.
