In 1979, God gave Dr. Gary a powerful vision for northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan that burned deep within his heart. He was shown a wheel that started on fire and began to spread throughout the area into the surrounding cities with great signs, wonders and miracles. In 1986, it was time to begin to work. He, and his wife Cheryl, came to Eagle River and began this ministry.
Now 29 years later, many have have been saved, healed, raised from the dead and filled with the Holy Ghost. People are driving up to 60 miles one way to attend the services. Truly the vision is being fulfilled. The ministry of Abundant Life is one of compassion for the lost, the sick and to the spreading of the gospel throughout northern Wisconsin and the world.
