Rev. Kurt Gamlin grew up in Belvidere. Graduated from Belvidere High School and then went on to get his Bachelors of Science in Chemistry and Minor in World History at Illinois State University. Married Betsy “Buonauro” in August of 1977. Became a Christ follower his junior year in high school and felt the call into the ministry his senior year in college. Thereupon he attended Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky from 1977 to 1980. He has served five churches in his thirty one years of ministry. The Reynolds UMC, Hinsdale UMC, Antioch UMC, Wheaton Aldersgate UMC for eleven years, and now at FUMC in Woodstock. He is continually amazed and in awe of all that God has done and continues to do.

They have three children Ryan, Kristen and Trevor. Ryan and Kristen are married and Kristen has blessed them with four grand-children. Number one favorite hobby, when he can, play with his grandchildren. If that is not possible he enjoys exercise and participates in triathlons. Those three sports of swimming, biking and running constitute a good portion of his daily exercise routine. He also enjoys spending time in the kitchen cooking. He and Betsy enjoy their Friday night date night after a hectic week.
