Gary Ryals has been serving the Lord in ministry since 1974. Originally from Covington, LA, he later moved to Monroe, LA where he first received his call to enter the ministry. He is a graduate of Faith Training Center in Walhalla, South Carolina. Early in his ministry, he was led to do missionary work in Papua New Guinea. Gary and his wife Frances had the privilege to serve as missionaries in Papua New Guinea from 1977-1984. After returning to the United States in 1984, they felt a call to the pastorate and were led to a new church in Southeast Arkansas where they served as pastors for 24 years. During their tenure there, the church grew to be an impacting church that affected the entire Mississippi Delta area. Sensing that their time in Southeast Arkansas was over, Gary and Frances were drawn to Northwest Arkansas where they accepted the pastorate at New Life Fellowship in Pea Ridge. Since arriving at New Life Fellowship, we have seen our church grow both numerically and spiritually. Because of the recent growth, New Life Fellowship has recently purchased land on Highway 72 and will be building a new sanctuary in the near future. Gary and Frances have four children and seven grandchildren.
