Gary Reimers was raised in a Christian home and trusted Christ as Savior at an early age. He committed himself to preach the gospel while in high school and after graduation enrolled at Bob Jones University to prepare for pastoral ministry. After completing seminary training Gary and his wife, Jan, moved to Dover, N.H., in 1983 to plant Heritage Baptist Church. Fifteen years later the church had built a beautiful new facility and had reached over 200 in attendance.
The Lord then burdened Pastor Reimers with a desire to help prepare young men for the ministry. He returned to Greenville in the fall of 1998 to join the seminary faculty at BJU, teaching courses in expository preaching and theology.
In January 2002 he directed the planting of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Greenville and became the founding pastor. He has written a book on worship titled The Glory Due His Name as well as several articles for Christian magazines. His travels include opportunities to teach and preach in many foreign countries; and he also leads summer tours to the Holy Land (Israel and Jordan) and Journeys of Paul tours (Turkey, Greece and Rome).
Gary and Jan have three daughters and two grandchildren.
Pastor Reimers has written a book on worship entitled, The Glory Due His Name. The book presents a biblical view of what God expects in worship. Pastor draws parallels between wrong forms of ancient worship and dangerous trends in modern services. He also shows how worship services can continue to give God the kind of worship He demands. This study of the doctrine of public worship is essential for all who desire to worship their God in spirit and in truth.
