Brother Gensler was a licensed minister with the Church of God, Cleveland, Tennessee for many years and retired from the ministry as a licensed minister with the Full Gospel International. During his time in the ministry, Brother Gensler served as a traveling evangelist for many years, even preaching gospel out of a tent for several years. Brother Gensler served two terms as pastor of the Arnauldt Branch Church of God. In addition, he served as a church planter and founding pastor of two congregations, St. James Church of God and Bismarck Church of God. His last pastorate was at Pea Ridge Pentecostal Church.
