Gary Bates hails from Australia and has been speaking on the creation/evolution issue since 1990. With a background in management and marketing, in 2002, he was invited to join the ministry of CMI full-time and eventually became its Head of Ministry. Much in demand for his popular lay talks on creation, in 2009, Gary and his family relocated to America to serve as CEO of CMI-US. He was also elected to the position of CEO of CMI-Worldwide.

Once a convinced evolutionist, Gary has first-hand experience on how the Creation message has a dramatic impact on lives. He is now a young-earth creationist with a heart to communicate this life-changing information to the average ‘person in the street’.

Concerned about the tremendous interest in UFOs and associated extraterrestrial beliefs amongst young people (particularly in the church), Gary undertook specialist research in an attempt to solve this seeming baffling phenomenon. This led to his top 50 bestseller Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection (the only Creationist book ever to achieve this feat). This landmark book provides biblical answers to the many puzzling questions regarding UFOs, and whether there is alien life on other planets. As a leading Christian authority in this area, Gary has traveled extensively around the world, speaking and conducting literally hundreds of interviews on radio, television and various media.

The ABR ministry is excited and privileged to have Gary share his passion for the truth of the Gospel and the authority of the Bible with the ABR family of supporters. Please join us for a night of fellowship and blessing!

Sign up early to reserve your seat in advance. We are looking forward to a great night of Christian fellowship.
