To my Husband, Pastor and Friend, As it is stated in word of God, that the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and in them He delights thereof. (Psalms 37:23) God has a unique plan for each of our lives and a setplace for each of us to serve Him. It is obvious that you have been chosen to follow His descriptive path for His divine purpose and it is my blessed privilege to walk beside you and witness you being the hands, the feet, the voice, and the love of God expressed in many ways. In every way you have chosen to honor Him as you have served in His name. I commend you for serving with such level of consistent integrity and fervor. As I have been in times past, I will continue to be your prayer partner and number one supporter as you willingly accept the work God has added to you in this Apostolic call. I can clearly see that yesterday was a stepping stone for todayâ€™s new beginning, so with all that is within me, I join you in Embracing the Assignment God has called you to with faith and expectation of seeing countless lives being impacted for Godâ€™s glory. May He who has begun this good work bring it to full completion. Humbly submitted, Lady Cassandra Gullage
Lady Cassandra Gullage
Biography of Apostle Terry Gullage, Sr. Elder Terry Gullage, Sr. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on September 14, 1963. He is the eighth child of twelve children born to Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Gullage, Sr. He is married to Cassandra Calhoun Gullage and is the father of two sons, Sedrick and Terry Jr. and two loving grandchildren. At the age of seven, Elder Gullage was baptized at the Canaan Baptist Church by his grandfather, Rev. James Powell, Sr. In the early seventies, the Gullage family relocated to Avondale, Louisiana, where Elder Gullage joined the Second St. John Baptist Church. From a tender age, Elder Gullage exempliﬁed a special talent in music. Later on, his interests broadened to the piano and he began leading and preparing others for the music ministry. At the age of ﬁfteen, God instructed Elder Gullage to organize the Avondale Community Choir. This group traveled throughout the United States lifting up the Name of Jesus. The Avondale Community Choir has ministered and recorded with several artists. As Elder Gullage continued to lead the Avondale Community Choir, his leadership abilities along with his gifts to write, arrange and direct music, were even more evident. Elder Gullage was educated in the Jeﬀerson Parish School System and graduated from John Ehret High School. He received a scholarship in Music Arts and attended Delgado Community College and Xavier University. He also attended the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as the Hilliard Vocational Bible Institute (PEASI). He was later elevated to the position of Minister of Music at Second St. John Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Isaac Smith and later under the leadership of the late Rev. Vernon S. Joshua. He also served as the choir director at Ninevah Baptist church under the leadership of the late Rev. Wilker Neal and later Rev. Sam Baker. As God continued to fashion and shape Elder Gullage, in 1994 he humbly accepted the calling of Minister of Music at Beacon Light International Baptist Cathedral under the anointed teachings and leadership of Bishop Darryl S. Brister. He also served as the Minister of Music for the Louisiana State and Southern Berith District of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. Although he excelled in the area of music, God called him to preach in 1997, and he was ordained on May 16, 1999, under the Ministry of Bishop Darryl S. Brister. On January 28, 2002, God called Elder Gullage and placed him as the Senior Pastor and Teacher of the Greater Mount Calvary Church. Under his leadership the church has grown both spiritually and numerically. Several in-house ministries have been established after all but most of all numerous souls have been saved and reclaimed for the Kingdom of God. Pastor Gullage is a part of the Association of Independent Ministries under the leadership of Bishop I.V. Hilliard in Houston Texas. Elder Gullage’s favorite scripture to live by is “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to thy own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths”. (Proverbs 3:5-6) He is dedicated and committed to the calling and work that God has placed on his life. In 2016, God laid it upon Apostle Gullage heart to birth the INSPIRED network. The INSPIRED network is the International Network of Senior Pastors Incorporating Relevant Ecclesiastical Development. June 2016, the network of pastors held their ﬁrst conference and fellowship time together. The group of pastors has submitted themselves to Apostle Gullage as their pastor, spiritual father, and/ or mentor from all over the world. Apostle Gullage is one of God’s Chosen Vessels that is making an impact in this generation
