CHURCHES // FLORIDA
Gator Christian Life
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA // GAINESVILLE, FL
At Gator Christian Life we are committed to the mission of bringing college students to Jesus Christ and preparing them for a lifetime of service.
We meet on Sundays for worship and teaching, but we live out our Christian lives in community. We grow in our faith through meeting in small groups, called Disciple Groups, for multiplication, accountability, and connecting. Once a week, Disciple Groups meet together in "House Church", a larger group, for fellowship, worship, prayer, and communion.
We encourage you join us on Sunday and to become part of one of our House Church communities!
WHERE TO FIND US
GCL meets by House Church on most Sundays, and all together for monthly Celebration Services in Turlington L007 at 11am!

OUR LOCAL PASTORS
Justin & Heather are on staff with GCL and have seven adorable kids. Life with the Dicuses is like a Hawaiian vacation, complete with floral attire, rowdy natives, and frequent parties. They’d love for you to become a regular luau attendee!
Larry loves the Gators almost as much as he loves his wife and four kiddos. Like Jesus, Larry worked in construction before beginning his work as a minister. He still does construction and enjoys getting to serve people from/with broken homes. If you're interested in the finer points of DIY, or want to enjoy and steak and one of Corey's famous milkshakes, The Messer family would love for you to visit them. Just please leave by 9 - Larry is old and needs his rest!
Matt is our oldest pastor, but he hides it well. Matt & his wife, Jan, have 11 children, ages 39 down to 16 (just look for the herd of blonde kids). They have a really large dining room table and are always looking for students to invite over for dinner.
