Pastor Gary Mindel


Gary was raised in a pastor’s home. His dad and mom founded Harbor Light Community Chapel. He has always loved Harbor Light and it’s people. Gary gave his life to Jesus Christ at the age of 19 and was radically transformed into a Christ follower. He later married his high school sweet heart Lisakay, who also was saved that same year and they entered the ministry at the age of 21. They have served Harbor Light for over 30 years and the last 15 years as the senior pastors.

Gary and Lisakay's heart is for people to have an authentic powerful relationship with Holy Spirit. They have always led a small group and are devoted to inspiring couples to have marriages that honor God and each other.

Gary and Lisakay have two married children and 4 grandchildren. Lisakay enjoys baking, gathering wild edible foods, painting, gift giving and is seriously addicted to paper. Gary enjoys hunting, golfing and woodworking.

Life Verse: 2 Corinthians 13:14 “Oh that you would know the amazing grace of the Master Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of Father and the intimate friendship of Holy Spirit.”
