Rev. Gina Casey was brought up in a Christian home and accepted Jesus at the tender age of five. Her father, the late Rev. Calvin C. Miles, Sr., was an ordained Baptist preacher and teacher. Her mother, Mrs. Emma Jean Miles, is her biggest “fan” and supporter. She is very grateful for parents who made sure that Jesus Christ and the church were integral parts of her life. Their godly examples before her have done much to develop, nurture and strengthen her Christian faith.
In 1979, Rev. Casey married Duane Casey and joined her husband’s church, Trinity A.M.E. Zion in Washington, DC. She accepted the call to become a Minister of the Gospel in 1983 and preached her first sermon in 1984. Since then, she has been blessed to minister to God’s people both nationally and overseas.
For 15 years Rev. Casey was the senior pastor of Fisher Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church in Phoenix, Arizona. She left Intel Corporation in March 2002 to devote herself to full-time pastoral work. She held women’s retreats at sites throughout Arizona for eleven consecutive years, with attendees coming from over 12 states.
In June 2010, Rev. Casey was transferred to the North Eastern Episcopal District. Bishop George Battle appointed her as the first female pastor of the historic Columbus Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church in Boston, MA, where she served faithfully until summer 2014.
Rev. Casey is currently a doctoral candidate at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, concentrating in Workplace Theology, Ethics & Leadership. She is also a member of the Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
Rev. Casey is passionate about preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching to enlighten people about the Word of God and their need for spiritual transformation. She enjoys utilizing her experience as a business manager and management trainer to design unique, creative programs that develop and empower church and para-church leadership and staff.
