In September of 2007, we held our first official Sunday morning service. We were blessed to be able to use, free of charge, the basement of the Catholic Church manse. Our first seven years in Gold River we were under the spiritual covering title of Northgate Foursquare Church in Courtenay with Pastor Scott Gaglardi as our Senior Pastor.
In the winter of 2008, we realized that we would need to move to a bigger building and as a church family we began to pray and seek out another place to meet. We finally had permission to start renovations on this building, in the Village Square Plaza. Working on the renovations here, caused our Church Family to really come together! We not only saw church growth but we began to grow in grace and knowledge of Jesus together. We saw many salvations and baptisms in that time!!
In June of 2014, we became a charter church with Foursquare Gospel Church of Canada. Darla and I became Senior Pastors and our church changed it's name to Westgate Foursquare Gospel Church. We now operate as a fully self-sufficient church, totally dependent on the grace and provision of Jesus Christ as Jehovah Jireh, our Provider.
When I first became a Christian, I would never have imagined what God would do. I knew that I wanted other men and women to know the salvation that I knew but I didn't imagine this! God had much bigger plans than I did! Ephesians 3:20 says He...is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His Power that is at work within us, to Him be the Glory... forever and ever! Amen
In His Great Love,
Pastor Romeo Gaiga
