After years in the drug world, Pastor Guy Iannello was radically saved by a “close encounter of the God kind.” Sentenced to life in prison at the age of seventeen, Guy was searching for answers. God sovereignly and miraculously touched Guy’s life over 20 years ago, filling him with the Holy Spirit and changing the course of his life forever.
Since that time Guy has grown to be a powerful pastor and teacher of the Word of God. Pastor Guy is the founder and director of Vine of Life Ministries, Inc., and Total Freedom, an Alternative Addictions Program located in Ocoee, FL.
Pastor Guy believes strongly that “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM.” Since he was set free, by the power of the Holy Spirit, he has dedicated his life to seeing others set free. The Total Freedom Program is a very successful, residential program, for those suffering from addiction, and other forms of bondage. The disciples become skilled in the knowledge and use of the Word of God as well as developing a relationship with God and His Holy Spirit. Pastor Guy, as well as many of the graduates of Total Freedom, minister in the local jails, continuing to reach out to those in need
Once divorced in the height of addiction, Pastor Guy and his wife Cate now serve together in this powerful and unusual ministry. Their marriage is a wonderful testimony to the restorative power of the gospel.
Pastor Guy Iannello holds a Doctorate of Divinity from Southern Grace Bible Seminary & Institute of Ministry and a Bachelor of Theology from Grace Bible Seminary.
