Meet Pastor G. A. Manns


I feel that my preaching, teaching and leading by example impacts the kingdom of God by showing others a better way of life, through Christ.

Pastor G. A. Manns is the Senior Pastor of Appleton Sanctuary Church of Holiness and he carries the vision forward from the foundation which was laid by the late Dr. G. Manns by Godly vision 22 years ago.

Pastor G. A. Manns has been in ministry for over 20 years. He was called to the Ministry early in 1994 where he served as a Deacon at Appleton Sanctuary. He completed his Ministry preparatory classes, received his Associate's Degree in Theology from Grace Seminary in North Carolina, a 2 year certificate of completion from Maranatha Theological Center in Milwaukee, WI. and has received many various ministry and secular certificates.

During his spiritual journey, he has assisted in organizing outreach events for the community such as a free church parking-lot event called "Taking It Outside" and facilitates a father's group called "Just for Dads Club" under the program called "B.A.B.E.S." which helps build strong families. These are all ministry outreach endeavors falling under Appleton Sanctuary Outreach Ministries, Inc.

Pastor Manns pours out of his vessel what God has given him as he teaches Christian classes, spiritual counseling and instruction classes focusing on marriage, pre-marital instruction, spiritual healing, emotional healing, and victims of abuse.

He also preaches in the nearby correctional facility, Oshkosh Correctional Institution. He is one of the pastors leading the prayer at the yearly Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration all while being a devoted husband & father for over 17 years.

Pastor Manns has a heart for his parishioners and this is evident through his power packed preaching, teaching, love, time, and attention he gives to the people God has allowed him to shepherd. His motto is "Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day..." Acts 26:22

From our Pastor: I feel that my preaching, teaching and leading by example impacts the kingdom of God by showing others a better way of life, through Christ. By teaching people how to move outside themselves and how to, not just read the word, but how to live the word. We attempt to accomplish this through Christian Life Application classes, marriage and individual counseling, volunteering at our ministry driven outreach endeavors, and teaching fathers how to be better dads.

Pray for me as I continue to pray, love, and support you in your Christian journey.
