For many years Pastor Bellinger has been known as a skilled musician with the call of God upon his life to usher in the presence of the Lord through prophetic music. His musical abilities are a gift from the Lord. He began skillfully playing the drums at age five. When Pastor Bellinger’s father Elder Carl Bellinger, a pastor and a traveling evangelist, was in need of an organist, he began to pray and anoint young Gary’s hands every night as he asked God to give his son the gift of playing the keyboard. And God did just that. Gary began to play the ivory keys at the age of ten.
For nearly 20 years he has traveled through these United States accompanying not only his Father in minsitry, but his gift has also made room for him and opened many ofther doors of opportunity. Pastor Bellinger has played for some of the most renowned preachers and musical artists of our time. He has also traveled to Germany, Switzerland, France, Yugoslavia, and Italy sharing his gift of music.
While music opened the door for many ministry experiences, Pastor Bellinger began to answer yet another call. In 1995 the Lord made clear to Pastor Bellinger that he was not called only to the ministry of music, but also to the ministry of the Word.
In 2002, with the blessings and release of his spiritual parents, Bishop Charles & Co-Pastor Debra Gibson of Holy Ghost Jubilee Ministries, Pastor Bellinger along with his wife, Co-Pastor Myra Bellinger began The City of God Ministries in Charlotte, NC.
With this mandate, God gave Pastor Bellinger an Apostolic anointing, a ministry of deliverance with a heart for worship. He believes that his assignment is to change atmospheres, assist in transforming lives and to teach the restorative message of developing right relationship with the Father.
