These include: St. Mark’s, Canton; Christ Church, Hudson; St. John’s, Cuyahoga Falls; and St. John’s, Youngstown.
Dr. Gaston has been ordained for 27 years, serving in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio. throughout his ministry, he has been “bi-vocational,” balancing ministry in the Church with work in higher education.
