Gary's Profile 

The Keys of Heaven Ministries

Victoria and Gary Westgerdes,
The Keys of Heaven Ministries

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

... 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)
