GARRY WILLS was born in Matamata, New Zealand in 1956 and grew up on my parents’ stud sheep and cattle farm at Walton, near Matamata. Even though he was brought up in a Christian home, he made his own decision to become a Christian at age 17. Eleven months later, he sensed the call of God to dedicate his farming career to ministry. Along with preparing for this farm ministry, Garry has held a number of leadership positions including; youth group leader, both in his own Church and interdominationally, worship leader and has led prison ministry teams. Garry has also served on the Church Board as a finance and property deacon, and has also preached occasionally over the years. Garry is married to Margie, and together they have been children’s church leaders, home group leaders, have led a young adults’ group, and have been the leaders of Sunday night church services. Garry and Margie have two adult children, Rachel and Amanda and live at Te Pahu, on the outskirts of Hamilton. Garry’s heart is for people, seeing them come to know Jesus, seeing them grow and develop skills, seeing them have food to put on the table and seeing them be effective in their calling in God.
