What Inspired This Ministry?
The inspiration came when my husband Ray and I moved to California in 2000; I knew at that time God had given me a passion to help others know the depth of His goodness. As He cultivated in me a desire to teach about His love, I became the student. I understood the great value He places on people; this changed the way I see others; people became my passion. The desire of our ministry is to help others understand the love of God and value what God values—people!
The Greatest Inspiration!
My passion to lead like Jesus inspired me to pursue a master’s degree with an emphasis in Christian Leadership. Mentoring is an important part of my ministry. When people understand principles I’ve taught them in the Word, and they go and teach others, this fulfills one of my favorite Scriptures, “Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12 NIV)
