Founding Lighthouse Christian Fellowship (now Gateway Fellowship) in Millersburg, Ohio, Senior Pastor Larry Hasemeyer leads with a true pastor's heart. Through his 34 years of pastoral ministry, many lives have been changed and challenged to dream big for God. His passion is to see every person reach their full potential in Christ and have their God-given dreams fulfilled. Pastor Larry has a strong anointing of exhortation and preaches a relevant word for the church today. He is a visionary and a pastor's pastor. As a credentialed member of Global Christian Ministry Forum (GCMF), he serves as Presbyter and District Coordinator for Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. He is also a Vice-President of GCMF's International Division. Pastor Larry has ministered extensively overseas preaching revivals as well as ministering at Pastors' and Leadership Conferences. He and his wife Billi have been married for 47 years and have four grown children and nine grandchildren. Pastor Larry's favorite place is the beach and his motto is ..."At the beach, time you enjoy wasting, is not time wasted." (T.S. Eliot)
Associate Pastor Duane Galbraith is a Nashville, Ohio born, Holmes County native who has a contagious love for Jesus and a genuine love for people. In 1987 Pastor Duane answered the call to pastor the youth of then, Lighthouse Christian Fellowship and in 2002 accepted the assignment of Associate Pastor of the church. This allowed him to embrace the full scope of ministry to God's people and those about to become children of God. One of his biggest joys is to lead someone to Christ and make disciples through personal mentoring. Pastor Duane's relentless passion for Christ compels him to reach out and serve others sacrificially. A devoted family man, he and his wife Rachelle have three children and three grandchildren. If you don't find him sharing Jesus or helping someone out, he will most likely be out on the trails riding his dirt bike.
