Pastor Gary Lalanne grew up in the Central Valley of California and received his Bachelors in Business with an emphasis in Sports Marketing from Fresno State University. Upon graduation, he worked in various front offices of professional sports teams which eventually led him to settle in Idaho where he met and married the love of his life, Ashley. They have 2 amazing children, TaLise and Landon, but don’t be surprised if you see them with additional “bonus kids” since they also serve as foster parents.
Gary and his family started attending Anthem in 2014 and instantly fell in love with the church. When he was still working in human resources and management, he served the body in many lay leadership roles that prepared him to follow his calling to become the Administrative Pastor for Anthem Hayden in 2019. Gary loves to spend time with his wife & kids, complete home improvement projects, cook (especially on his Traeger), hunt, fish, and dominate his fantasy football league.
