Encourager Extraordinaire

Ernie Gastineau is an 86 year old man that bubbles over with a positive outlook on life. He challenges others to enjoy and embrace each moment of every day with the right attitude. One that is positive, joyful and filled with purpose.

Big Ern is a proud and devoted follower of Jesus Christ that has done everything, been everywhere, had millions and at times had nothing (by the world’s standards). He’s been the biggest of sinners but since he’s turned his life over to the Lord he simply loves with God’s love and and serves people. Ern is an encourager extraordinaire!

He’s also the Father of Mark Gastineau, former NFL defensive end great with the New York Jets.

Big Ern provides encouraging statements every Monday on our website and Facebook called; “Monday Mornin’ Wake Up Call with Big Ern.”
