Gaspar Anastasi is the Apostle of Word of Life Ministries and Pastor over Word of Life Church, Fort Myers, Florida. Word of Life Ministries consists of over twelve churches worldwide. In 2003, the World Outreach Headquarters for Word of Life Ministries was relocated from Freeport, New York to Fort Myers, Florida, where Gaspar & Michele now oversee Word Of Life Church.
Sensing a strong apostolic call on his life, in 1997 Gaspar founded Global Church Fellowship International 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 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 29h 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 about 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 Michele have also pioneered a highly successful marriage counseling ministry and conduct marriage conferences often as well as other conferences on spiritual warfare, damaged emotions & past hurts, leadership development, and the church & Israel.
Gaspar also airs a weekly television program called “Stop Hurting, Start Healing” and has written close to a dozen books. Michele Anastasi leads Word Of Life’s own Women Caring for Women ministry and is active in women’s leadership development. They have been married since 1967 and have five children and four grandchildren.
