It all started on a Tuesday morning early as Dad and Mom drove to Kennestone Hospital in Marietta.  There around 9:00am on August 20th a wonderful baby boy was born into the Ledford family.  His name, you guessed it, was Gary.  Yes that’s right it was me.  I have been privileged to be the son of Jr. and Betty Ledford.  I was taught at an early age to love going to church and being in a family that loved the Lord.

Then on a Sunday night in the basement of a house in Kennesaw, GA  I heard the greatest story ever told to anyone.  It was the news of a Savior, Jesus Christ who loved me more than anyone could.  That night I trusted Christ as my on personal Savior at the age of 14. I have never gotten over what He has done and love Him.

It was in May of 1974 at the age of 17 that I finally surrendered to preach the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.  I have been  privileged to be used of the Lord in many areas but the greatest of these is as a pastor now for over 20 years. The last 15 years at University Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA.

On Saturday June 14, 1980 at 2:00 in the afternoon I was married to my best friend and sweetheart, Linda.  We have been married for 38 years now and I wouldn’t trade serving with her in the ministry.  She has been a wonderful wife and an awesome mother to 4 wonderful children.  Together we have a great son-in-law and two outstanding daughter-in-laws.  Now in our later years we are the proud grandparents to six precious grandchildren.

It is our desire to glorify our Lord in our home and family.
