Biography of Norman Gonsalves:
Norman Gonsalves is a native of the small Caribbean island of Antigua. Upon moving to America, he joined the U.S. Air Force where he served for 24 years. While in the Air Force, Norman excelled in all his endeavors achieving the rank of senior NCO. When he retired, he moved to Orlando, FL with his family. Determined to achieve fame and fortune after the military, he entered the corporate world. Norman soon became extremely uncomfortable with his life there and sought something more. In 1980, a friend invited him to a Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMFI) breakfast. There he found men that were unlike any other men he had ever encountered before. These men were full of joy and love and possessed something which he had been longing for. Norman immediately wanted what these men had. That very day he met the Carpenter's son and his life has never been the same since.
The Lord spared Norman's life from a deadly illness and from an almost fatal shooting. Norman has served the Lord through many different ministries. Today he is a Field Representative and President of the FGBMFI Orlando chapter. He has also contributed to his local community as a leader of Promise Keepers at his church.
Norman and his wife Claire have traveled to
the Caribbean and England sharing their testimony. He has
also been blessed to share his testimony throughout the
United States. His ministry is one of encouragement,
teaching victory over all life's challenges. Norman feels
that if the Lord can use him, a simple man from a small
Caribbean island, he can use anyone to be a fisher of men.
