CJ Gentile

C. J. was born and raised in the Portales NM area and Portales is where he submitted
his life to Christ at the age of 7. Currently, he and his family reside in Socorro, NM. He
has formally worked in the automotive/heavy truck repair industry and in the educational
system. However, he has many interests and experiences outside of those areas. Mr.
G, as his high school students call him, has served different churches in different roles.
FBC Tucumcari-office of Deacon, Angel Fire Baptist Church-office of Associate Pastor
(where he was ordained as a pastor in 2014), Angel Fire Cowboy Fellowship as their
sound technician, FBC Springer-office of Pastor, FBC Socorro-office of Youth and
Families Pastor, and now in the office of Pastor for Calvary Baptist Church since 2019.

C. J. is currently working on completing a Master of Theological Studies soon.

C. J. is married to Amanda, and they have three children, Kelsey, Kinslee, and Koulson.
Kinslee and Koulson are young and still in the house while Kelsey is out of college,
working in the graphic media arts area while working on a Master’s of Counseling.

C. J. deeply appreciates his wife Amanda for supporting him in all his endeavors,
especially in ministry. She too works outside of the church as a COTA/L and
Developmental Specialist in Early Intervention while doing anything C. J. asks of her in
ministry as she also cares for our children. Amanda came to Christ in Socorro, NM at
the age of 7.
