The Founders

Pastor Gaspar & Michele Anastasi

Gaspar Anastasi is the Apostle and Senior Pastor of Word of Life Ministries in Freeport, New York and Fort Myers, Florida. In 2003, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, Gaspar established Word Of Life Church in Fort Myers, FL, which served as ministry headquarters through 2013.
Sensing a strong apostolic call on his life, in 1997 Gaspar founded Global Church Fellowship International (GCFI) for which he serves as Executive Director. GCFI is a fellowship of churches whose purpose is to train, encourage, and support church leaders worldwide while imparting a heart for Israel and the Jewish people.
In 1985, he founded Word Of Life Ministries Bible Education Center—now Kairos University—to help train up the Body of Christ as God’s mighty army.
Also in 1983, he founded the New Life Dream Centers, a rehabilitation program for drug and alcohol abusers. The New Life Dream Centers recently celebrated their 31st anniversary and today have, with the help of Jesus Christ, delivered hundreds of men and women from the bondage of drug and alcohol addiction and other dysfunctional lifestyles.
In more than 32 years of ministry and through the leading of the Holy Spirit, the Anastasi’s have developed a focus for total healing—spirit, soul, body, and relationships. As a result of Word Of Life’s unique and effective prayer ministry, many people have been healed of deep emotional scars caused by past hurts and rejection and now live lives that are whole and productive. Together, Gaspar and his wife Michele have also pioneered a highly successful marriage counseling ministry and conduct Marriage conferences as well as other conferences on Spiritual Warfare, Damaged Emotions & Past Hurts, Leadership Development and The Church & Israel.
Gaspar airs a daily radio program in Fort Myers called God Has the Answer. He has written close to a dozen books. He and Michele have been married since 1967 and have five children and four grandchildren.
