Eric: “I was saved at the age of 5. I never remember a time that I did not want to serve God. My earliest memories were of memorizing Scripture and praying.”
Rachelle: “I was first saved at an early age, but I don’t remember exactly. It was while I was in high school at Independence Bible School in Kansas that I really became established spiritually.”
Eric: “When I was an early teen I felt like the Lord was calling me to preach. I did not know what all that might mean, but I was willing to follow God’s leading wherever it took me. While doing an internship in college, my eyes were opened to see the need in the cities. God used those experiences to lead me into urban work.”
Rachelle: “My calling has been primarily as a wife and mother. I feel that my main role is to support my husband and to raise our children for God.”
