Our Pastor

Pastors Brent & Teresa Gabbard

On January 25, 1975, Pastor Brent Gabbard was born to Rev. John & Ann Gabbard. An only child, he grew up as the pastor’s kid, serving wherever needed. Pastor Gabbard accepted the call to preach in 1992 at the age of 17. He preached his first sermon within two weeks, and his second sermon was during a Youth Service at a Campmeeting in Dayton, OH.

Pastor Gabbard married his sweetheart, Sis. Teresa Allen Gabbard, in 1994. The oldest of five children to Bro. Duane & Sis. Annie Allen, Sis. Gabbard is well acquainted with the ministry as her father is also a preacher. They have two wonderful children, Brittany and Courtney, for whom Sis. Gabbard was a stay-at-home Mom.

While serving as the Youth Leaders and Adult Sunday School teacher in their home church in Bond, KY, Pastor Gabbard started working as an electrician for Laurel Cookie Factory and worked his way up to Production Manager. After ten years of service, he accepted the call into full time ministry in 2004. Since then he has evangelized and preached at multiple Youth Camps, Revivals, and Campmeetings all across the country. After 9 years of full time ministry, 400,000+ miles, and nearly 2,700 church services to date, they graciously accepted the Pastorship of Bible Holiness Church (BHC). We are very grateful for their burden and desire to see our church flourish and win souls for the Kingdom.

In the years since, we have come to value the Gabbard’s commitment to the congregation at BHC. Pastor Gabbard continually demonstrates his passion for worship and his drive to ensure that each member is reached by the power of the Gospel. Sis. Gabbard’s caring personality shines through in her concern for each member of the flock. The Gabbard’s have also grown as a family while at BHC, welcoming Kevin Holcombe in marriage to Brittany and Samuel Merrel in marriage to Courtney. Pastor and Sis. Gabbard have also become familiar with the joys of grandparenthood and are thrilled to spend time with Samuel and Courtney’s two children, Easton and Kayleigh.
