The Brochure mailing in the Mercer County area was completed in December, we covered the Rockford, Ft Recovery, St Henry, Minster, Coldwater, and Celina postal routes. Received mostly good or great comments, (thank you for the encouragement), I'm planning on making a video with some of them.

The next adventure the Lord has laid on my heart I will share once it is ready to go out, so please be in prayer, I'm hoping for February.

Donations are not tax deductible but if you would like to give you may do so on line or by writing a check to the ministry and mailing it to the address.

The Brochures are going out, if you agree and like them please join in, if a hundred people gave $5.00 a month we would be in even greater shape.

If you haven't seen one ask around or check it out on line. Thank You,
Gary Westgerdes.

Vicky and I watched Pastor James MacDonald this morning,7-10-16, he had a great message, word by word, on John 3:16. I'm not a big fan of sinner's prayers but a sincere desire to repent, ask for forgiveness and trusting in Jesus as your full payment and victory over sin - God's promise is He will give you the gift of everlasting life! Come join the family of God! Gary. ... See MoreSee Less

For God So Loved Brochure

The Keys of Heaven Ministries, by Gary and Vicky Westgerdes

Hello, and welcome to the website! The Keys of Heaven Ministries was founded by Gary Westgerdes, located in Celina, Ohio.  

"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us."  (Psalm 103:12)

Hi, my name is Gary Westgerdes, the founder of The Keys of Heaven Ministries. I was born and raised in a Catholic family in a mostly Catholic community, in Ohio. At age seven a religion class that I was in was being taught about heaven and hell; God was convicting me of my sin and I was worried about going to hell. A week or so later, the class teacher, I don't know why, read John 3:16 and upon hearing God's word I was born again as I trusted in Jesus for the forgiveness of my sins, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." After wandering from God my Father this prodigal son returned home at age 23 for forgiveness. I celebrated my 55th year as a Child of God the summer of 2018. View my testimony to hear more.

My wife Victoria and I have been blessed with five wonderful children and seven beautiful grandchildren. Read More

A Paraphrase of about 10 – 15minutes; “I really liked your pamphlet, it was very well written. I liked the way you just presented the facts and didn’t really bash anybody. You just laid it out for them to decide. It was very good.”

Text Message from a Christian Pastor; 12/2017:

... One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise ... but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8,9)
