In 1989 Gary attended a worship training event led by one of the leading founders of the worship ministry in North America. That event set his path going forward and within a year Gary was leading worship in his local church in South Carolina. Since that time for the next 20 years Gary led worship and taught in worship seminars all across the USA and Canada. His most attended class was “How To Transition From Traditional Worship to Contemporary Worship,” usually attended by ministers of music in denominational churches. He managed his first Integrity Music artist in 1992.
In 2005 Gary founded The Management Agency (TMA) as a direct response to ministries and Christian artists’ need for professional management and development services at a reasonable price provided by someone with experience specifically related to their fields. He has worked with and served churches, ministries, and artists for over 30 years.
Gary has worked closely with some of the leading figures in the contemporary worship field including Ron Kenoly, Alvin Slaughter, Steve Fry, Carl & Leann Albrecht and many others. He has served as personal manager for Paul Wilbur (Integrity Music), Lynn DeShazo (Integrity Music), Bob Fitts (Maranatha & Integrity Music), Michael Gungor (co-wrote Dove nominated “Friend of God”), Meredith Andrews (now with Word Music), and many other independent artists nation-wide.
