On April 10, 2016, late in the afternoon, Gayle Tucker passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family.
Gayle joined Faith For Today in 2004 and worked to connect the ministry to local congregations through innovative programming and live seminars. In 2007, she began co-hosting Lifestyle Magazine, and in 2009 she joined the Faith For Today television team full-time as Associate Speaker for the ministry.
Although Gayle was a partner in ministry as Mike’s wife, she was a minister in her own right. She worked as an Associate Pastor at the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church in Arlington, Texas for 16 years. She served as the Pastor of Administration, Music, and Worship, with focus areas in Children’s and Women’s Ministries. Gayle was the first woman to become a Credentialed Commissioned Minister in the Southwestern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Prior to pastoring in Arlington, Texas, she spent multiple years as a schoolteacher.
Gayle’s background in Elementary Education was influential in making family relationships an emphasis in her ministry. Gayle and Mike have traveled North America as co-presenters for From This Day Forward and Love For A Lifetime marriage conferences, and co-created Mad About Marriage, a seminar project that includes: a television series, marriage seminars, and small group curriculums.
She was also co-author of the books: Mad About Marriage, Mantras for Marriage, and Marriage Moments.
Members of the Faith For Today team remember her as a gracious, fun, gentle and wise leader. She was often referred to as the “glue” that made everything work well together. Her passion for family, her mentorship role in ministry, her love for Christ and her devotion to Mike has made an impact upon this world that cannot be measured. Her legacy of love and ministry will shine on in all who knew her. We celebrate Gayle’s life and look forward to seeing her again when Jesus returns to take us to the earth made new.
