Gary Szymik was raised in Stevens Point, WI. Since he gave his life to Christ at the age of 17, it has been his dream to use his gifts and talents for the kingdom of God. In 1985, Gary traveled as guitarist for Janny Grein during her Celebration of Life Summer Tour. In 1987, he competed in the 1987 KCFO / Coca-Cola Summer Song Search at the Maybee Center in Tulsa, OK. His song, In My Eyes placed 1st runner-up and was recorded on a single for radio play. It was this recording and the In My Eyes cassette album that eventually launched him on the road in 1988. In the same year he and his wife Nancy were married and began traveling as evangelists and have been ministering together on the road and in church positions for over 26 years.
Although most of their travels have been inside the state of Wisconsin, they have also ministered in many other parts of the United States as well as Mexico, and India where they ministered to over 250 YWAM leaders. Gary is the founder of Northwoods House of Prayer and he has a heart for Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. The primary focus of Northwoods House of Prayer is worship, prayer and intercession, and teaching with the ultimate goal being power and passion restored to the Church. Gary and Nancy are both ordained through Church & Ministerial Alliance International (CMAI) in Houston, TX.
Gary has completed one CD project and plans to begin recording three more soon. This CD, Wings of an Eagle, can be ordered through iTunes and many other online sources. He is also pursuing the publication of his music in order to help fund the fulfillment of his vision and to give them more freedom to travel wherever the Lord would lead them to go. Three of Gary’s songs, Holy Holy, O What a Father You Are & Possess Me are currently being published through Kingsway / Thankyou Music (EMI).
Nancy Szymik, a revivalist at heart will stir your soul to go after God. Her passionate preaching will fan the flame of the Holy Spirit in your life. – Pastor Sharon Bishop
Nancy's ministry is characterized by her love for God and for His people. Many times I have seen her heart ache for the salvation and healing of those around her, and many times I have seen the presence of God fall and meet those needs. Having gone through numerous hardships herself, she is able to lovingly minister to others in need. Nancy is a gift to the Body of Christ, and a devoted and loving friend. I would recommend her ministry to all those who are in need of the healing, life-changing presence of God. – Reverend Nadine Norland
