How Did Jesus Live?

    ~  Special Guest:  Ross Gilbert  ~   

Ross Gilbert has been a teacher and discipleship-counsellor at Crossways to Life in Kitchener since 2005 when he completed an internship program at GMI in Atlanta, GA.  Ross desires to see other believers come and experience the truth of Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me.”

Originally from Mississauga, Ontario, Ross grew up in a Christian home and was saved at age 7. He grew up with dreams of either being the goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs or an automotive engineer. After never receiving any phone calls from the Leafs, Ross completed his Master’s degree at the University of Waterloo in Mechanical Engineering in 2002

It was during this time that God used the circumstances in life to reveal the truth of his inability to find life and peace anywhere but in God. On December 5, 2001 God opened Ross’ eyes to the truth of Galatians 2:20 for the first time and he discovered that it was going to be God through him rather than him for God.

Since that day Ross has had a strong passion to share this message with other believers, always knowing that one day God would provide the opportunity. So after working at his dream job as an automotive engineer in Detroit, Michigan, he moved back to Kitchener-Waterloo to begin working with Crossways to Life.

Ross is married to Wiarda, who he met on a mission trip in Colombia, South America, but that’s another story. They are the proud parents of five beautiful children named Hannah, Zoe, Bella, Faith and Caleb.
