Gary Hilgendorf

Board Member ( Director)

I was born in 1960, and grew up in Nekoosa, in central Wisconsin. I was called into the ministry and completed my Pastoral degree at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I served as a Youth Pastor in Sparta, WI, for two years and pastored at the Assembly of God church in Alma Center Wisconsin for 3 years.


Other ministry work included being a Chaplain at the Black River Correctional Camp, serving as a Regional Hospice Chaplain along with many other positions of employment in Hayward over the years, including Automobile Sales for 14 years.


My wife Michelle and I felt called to Hayward in 1987, and we have been here ever since. I currently serve as Lead Pastor at the Spider Lake Church.
