Pastor at Citygate

John Gilfillan

  

Section Title

John had a dream to build a church that would be welcoming to people who are not connected to a local church.  His goal is to build a community where people have the opportunity to be transformed by the good news that Jesus came to rescue us from the very sin that destroys us.   With the support from Northbridge Community Church, as well as a church planting organization called Converge; a handful of committed, passionate and talented people launched CityGate Church on Sunday, September 18th, 2016.


A former employee of Stryker Instruments, John left the corporate world behind in the summer of 2016  to pursue a life of connecting with community.  Pastor John loves a good cup of coffee (anytime of the day) and a stuffed burger from Studio Grill!  


A native of Grand Rapids, John met his wife Cherie while she was in college.   Married four years later, John and Cherie packed up and moved to Portage and fell in love with the community.  They recently celebrated 12 years of marriage and they have been blessed with five children!   


John is a graduate of Clarks Summit University.
