Minister Gist’s primary focus in life is to lead as many people to Christ one by one. He stands firmly on his favorite scripture, Proverbs 3:5-6, which says,” Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.” His prayer is that God continues to use him to reach lost souls and elevate him in spreading the gospel for such a time as this.
