Gary Lindsay is the new director of children's ministry at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, where he will be serving more than 2,000 families, the church announced recently.
Pastor Lindsay was children's pastor at Irving Bible School in Irving, Texas, for the past eight years. He previously served as children's minister at Grace Baptist Church in Hudson, Massachusetts, and director of Christian education at South United Methodist Church in Manchester, Connecticut.
He holds a degree in hotel management from the University of Johannesburg, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
"The growing number of families at MPPPC is a key part of our outreach, especially since many of today's families live under high pressure," said Charley Scandlyn, Menlo Park campus pastor.
Menlo Park Presbyterian Church has campuses in San Mateo, Mountain View and San Jose, as well as in Menlo Park. More than 5,000 people attend the church each weekend.
