Steve: I grew up as a preacher’s kid and was saved and called into the ministry by age 7. Although I knew God had called me, I became rebellious to that call as a teenager and wanted to do my own thing. By my high school graduation, I had surrendered my life to God and the calling He had for me. I enrolled in Ohio Christian University to become a minister.

Debbie: I was saved at the age of 17, sanctified very soon afterward, and called into full-time Christian service. In obedience to that call, I changed my college choice and enrolled in Ohio Christian University, where I met Steve.

Following our marriage in 1982, we spent 11 years in pastorates and Christian education ministries before we were appointed as missionaries in 1993. We served for one term in the Caribbean and have ministered with WGM Southwest since then.
