East Campus (LeBleu Settlement)

(Official History)
In the year of 2013, God gave a vision to Pastor Samuel C. Tolbert, Jr. to start GSM-East in the LeBleu Settlement Subdivision which is located at Summer’s Driving Academy at 5525 Louisiana Highway 3059. The Vision had been lingering for years since the church had purchased a 23 Acre tract of land in the Lebleu Settlement (East of Lake Charles) back in 1991.

On March 21, 2013, Resurrection (Easter) Sunday, the church opened their doors with SEVERAL seed members from GSM on Moeling St. in Lake Charles, LA.  Among the members were one deacon and 1 deaconess, Bro. James & Sis Janice Thomas.

Swanda Collins reunited her membership and Todd Bradford was the first to join and accept Christ Jesus as Savior and the first baptism.  On September 1, 2013, we held our 1st Sunday School with adult and children/youth classes being taught. Alfretta Gauthier was named the first Sunday School Superintendent and teachers include Jeffery Poullard, Carol Lawson, Deaconess Janice Thomas, and Marcella Poullard.  The first musician of our church is Bro. Joseph Arvie.  The church continues to grow and the sky is the limit for where God shall take us.

On September 27, 2013 on a Friday evening, GSM (East) had our first outreach visiting twenty homes in the LeBleu Settlement area serving them with grocery bags, prayer, and invitation to visit our church home.  There were six visitors the following Sunday service.  Out of those visitors, Donna Stevenson has united with GSM (East).  Donna is now our first church Assistant at this location where she is answering phone, providing record keeping, keeping the office open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to serve our membership and our community. She also does light maintenance of the building.  This is only the beginning as we celebrate one year of ministry here, Sunday, March 16, 2014. To God be the Glory for the great things he has done.

GSM East also has a branch of the Royal Magnolia Garden located at this site.
