About Me

Hi! I’m Biz Gainey. Thanks for stopping by.

Pastor. Teacher. Writer.

Biz serves as the founding pastor of Pillar Community Church, in Vero Beach, Fl.  Pillar Community Church began in 2011 and is committed to an intentional pathway of growth by means of spiritual practices and sacred rhythms designed to nurture the With-God-Life (that means the experience of life with Jesus in the every day moments that we often fail to see). 

Biz is happily married to Melissa.  He and Melissa wed on July 25, 1995 and have three grown children.  Jacob age 22, Luke age 20, and Hayla, age 18.

Biz’s calling, actively engaged through Pillar Community Church, is “to awaken and be attentive to (remain present) – and awaken others and help them be attentive to – the eternal life (realities) now present and possible in Christ”

Biz received his Bachelor of Arts  from Warner University and his Master of Divinity from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.

He and several elders and key leaders have participated in the 2-year Transforming Community experience which has helped them clarify their vision and practices for guiding Pillar in becoming a Transforming Church.
