Gary Tapp

I was born and raised in the Columbia, SC area and have 3 brothers. I attended Forest Lake Presbyterian Church as a youth and lived in the Irmo / Chapin area and attended Lake Murray Presbyterian Church for a short period of time before joining Chapin Presbyterian Church. God brought me to Rivercrest in 2018.


I have a son living in NC and a daughter in Columbia and two grandchildren. Though clearly a seeker who enjoyed church, I was not born again until 2008, when I was

confronted by an evangelist who provided for me a way to understand my total depravity and need to repent and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. I finally understood my good works were filthy rags and there was only one way to Heaven.


Since that time I have sought to increase my knowledge of Jesus (to know Him is to love Him!) through bible reading and study, listening to online sermons by solid preachers, and bible study fellowship opportunities.
