Minister Gary Tate


I am a Christian father of four grown adults; I have seen God’s grace and mercy in my life. I will be happily married for 45 years this year (2016), to my wife, Anne. She is a woman of great faith and love, whom I share this life with. We overcame the statistics for marriages of Vietnam veterans, as my wife has told me. We have done this all while loving and caring for our severely and profoundly disabled daughter, which the stress alone could have added so many complications to our lives if we allowed it.
We have raised four children into four grown adults. Our first born, Rebecca, has her B.A. in education and is a teacher.
Our second child, Robert, works as a Supervisor for a cleaning company and was a coach with special needs children, and has a girlfriend named Natalie. Our third child, Mariel, has received her B.S.R.N., in Nursing, and was married in 2007 to Ronell. They have a son, Nadir, who turned 17 this year (2013). They have another sibling named Levi born into this world in 2010 and then Micah, conceived in 2012 and are expecting their third boy by the first week of September, 2014. Ronell and Mariel have a church now in the south suburbs of Chicago, Chicago/Dallas - Jesus Center. Finally, our youngest, Gayle, who, as I often say, “I believe I would not be the person I am today without her.”
I have a ministry named: Veterans Outreach/Marksman Ministry that is a sole-propriety ministry that I started in 2012. I have received my Associate degree in August of 2006 and my license as a minister, September 16, 2012 from God Carriers International Ministries.
