Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, Gayle and her family attended the Chicago Foursquare Church. Gayle was called to full-time ministry as a teenager and later moved to Los Angeles, California to attend Life Bible College, where she met and married her husband, Terry Samples.
As a Foursquare licensed and ordained minister, Gayle has assisted her husband in a variety of pastoral roles and now both are professors at Life Pacific College in San Dimas, California. Gayle received her MA in Counseling Psychology and her PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Regent University. Her dissertation focused on emotional intelligence and ministry.
Along with her husband, Terry, Gayle lives in Claremont, California. They co-pastor a House Church that meets weekly on Sunday evenings. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with friends, their daughters, sons-in-law and amazing, above average granddaughters and grandsons!
Gayle’s passion is for people to experience freedom from issues that negatively impact their current ability to function. These issues often stem from childhood wounds, or a distorted view of a God whose sole purpose in creating them was to be able to shower them with His love!
