He is excited about the opportunity serving on the CANFP Board will give him, as a potential Roman Catholic Priest, to share his vision of fertility and sexuality, especially with young people, as viewed through the lens of God’s salvific plan for mankind and the inherent dignity He has bestowed on us, which is one of incredible joy and promise.

A native Southern Californian, Gary Schuberg was born in Santa Monica, and resides in Carpinteria with his wife Beth and their children. A longtime supporter and member of CANFP, Gary brings not only his Southern California perspective (from his surfboard vantage point!), but also his professional experience in business management, and a lifetime of active involvement in prolife advocacy. Gary has served in many capacities, from counseling to board leadership, with Life Centers, and International Life Services, and is excited about the potential his service on the CANFP Board brings to be a bridge between these natural allies—pregnancy counseling centers and CANFP— in healing so many lives he has seen broken by this culture’s failure to adequately and properly appreciate God’s gift of human sexuality. Gary brings a sense of humor and can do attitude to his commitment to the work of CANFP, work he describes as brave, bold, and beautiful!
