Lead Pastor - Gary & Linda Bracewell

After serving as youth pastors in Miami, FL, Pastor Gary & Linda started Christian Life Fellowship in their home in November of 1989 with a heart to reach the people of Newberry and the surrounding area with the full gospel message of Jesus Christ. Under their leadership, CLF grew and relocated to our current campus on Newberry Rd. The Bracewells felt God leading them to other ministry in 1998. During that time, their family grew and they served Evangel Heights Church in Sarver, PA. In 2012 the Lord called Pastor Gary & Linda back to CLF with the specific mission of making disciples and teaching people to do ministry. Today CLF is actively teaching people to follow Jesus. Gary holds bachelors and masters degrees in ministry. He and Linda have been joyfully married for 37 years and counting!
