Rev. Ric Garland was born in Buffalo, NY and grew up “energetic” and passionate about life. After a serious accident, God got a hold of both Ric’s energy and his heart! He became very focused towards his God and had a burden for evangelism and revival in America. Rick attended WOLBI to begin his training and continued on at a Christian college to prepare for the ministry. Upon graduation, he met Mike Calhoun who served with Word of Life as a missionary. A cemented discipleship relationship began and Ric joined the Word of Life team to reach youth with the Gospel. Ric served 34 years with WOL in various leadership roles. During that time, Ric also completed his Masters from Baptist Bible Seminary. With his passion for revival, and his philosophy to pour into others, Ric is observing a mighty God working at grass level with a church gathering. He believes revival can start from Epsom, NH! Ric’s purpose statement is, “Teaching others to live Biblically principled lives.” Ric is a gifted speaker, skilled leader, passionate disciples, and a man of the Word. He is married to Ellen, his partner in ministry and love of his life. He has three amazing children, Nicole, Eric and Shannon and presently, two fabulous grandchildren!
