Gabe Gaeta

NextGen Pastor

Hi, I am Pastor Gabe Gaeta. I have a beautiful wife, Shari Gaeta and three amazing boys (Noah, Zachary and Jacob). I have been a Children’s and Family Pastor for over 2 decades. I am a kid at heart and love playing games of all kinds. I love long walks on the beach and sitting next to a warm fire (not really). I count it a privilege to be able to teach kids about God and His love for them. It amazes me each time I see the “light bulb” turn on for kids or families, as they receive a new nugget of understanding from God.

Favorite book

Hang out with my family, watch movies and travel

What is little known about you?
I first shaved my head for a kid’s church challenge. The kids far succeeded the fundraising goal! So, the buzzers came out and gone was my hair. The new look worked for me and continues to this day, over 15 years later.
