SHAYNE & GABRIELA VINCENT
Simply put, God is our life. We would not be who we are today without His compassionate hand on our shoulder, guiding us, compelling us, inspiring us. Sharing Him is our joy. And knowing Him is our life’s study.
I, Shayne, grew up in the wilds of Northern Minnesota. I come from a small town background, and a difficult childhood. God called me through the Adventist church at the age of 23 and has taken me on a journey of growth and healing ever since. I graduated from Weimar College with a BS of Pastoral Ministry and BS of Biblical Counseling. And I obtained my Masters of Social Work from Andrews University, with an emphasis in Religion, and Marriage & Family. I have worked as a Pastor, Associate Pastor, Chaplain, Colporteur, Bible Teacher, and musician, as well as a Therapist with Hospice, Addictions, Mental Health, and Marriage & Family. Years of experience have taught me deep insights into the underlying beliefs and needs of our members and communities.
My wife, Gabriela, is originally from Europe. She comes from a loving, Christ-centered, pastoral family (4-generations strong). She attended the Romanian Adventist Theological Institute and holds a BS in Pastoral Studies, as well as a BA in Piano & Choral Conducting from the George Enescu University of Arts. In addition, Gabriela also holds a Masters in Choral Conducting from the National University of Music and a Certificate in Organ from La Sierra University. She has a long history of involvement in the Romanian Adventist Church, including her national award winning choir, Pro Musica.
Over the 15 years we have been together, faith, family, community, and fellowship with our fellow believers have been at the center of our professional and personal lives. My wife and I are absolutely certain of our calling to love and serve people, because it has never ended.
We believe strongly in a community that is centered in the fellowship of Spirit. And we especially love that nature, photography, music, and outdoor activities are so abundant here in Wyoming. Ministry is our soul’s deepest fulfillment and we look forward to see what God has planned for the body of Christ in Wyoming.
God’s blessings to you!
