Gabriel was born in Portland, Oregon and from an early age it was clear there was a calling in his life. Receiving a child-sized pulpit from his grandmother for his 5th birthday, Gabriel would spend his early childhood practicing his preaching with a comb and a sock for his microphone and handkerchief.
Throughout Gabriel’s life, he’s always been involved in the church and community, but it was as a young adult that he rededicated his life to the Lord and decided to walk in His calling. Filled with passion for the lost, Gabriel felt God was leading him to begin a street evangelism ministry while providing food for the homeless. Starting with a sermon and a few hundred lunch bags out of the trunk of his car, Gabriel has been blessed to transform a small street ministry into a powerful Pacific Northwest regional ministry that is spreading rapidly on various platforms.
There’s a unique word embedded within him that transcends all cultural, generational, and denominational boundaries
Gabriel is armed with a powerful anointing. There’s a unique word embedded within him that transcends all cultural, generational, and denominational boundaries. God has equipped him to give a call-to-action, motivating people to stand up, take charge of their lives and move boldly into what God has purposed for them to be. The favor of God that rests on him is reflected by the anointing he carries.
Gabriel considers himself to be a family man. He is a brother, a son, and a husband to his high school sweetheart Porsche Madison. In addition to his itinerate ministry Gabriel serves as Assistant Pastor at St. John Church Transformation Ministries International in Tacoma, WA. He is a lover of movies and of, all things sports, and considers himself to be the world’s biggest Seahawks fan!
