David & Becky Ministry Fund
My wife, Becky, and I, were married in 1979 on my 21st birthday, and we immediately began serving in vocational ministry by planting our first church. During our journey over the decades since, we’ve planted and pastored three churches, raised three children, and I’ve ministered all over the world in more than 50 nations. Becky homeschooled all our kids, so she didn’t travel much with me when they were younger. Now that they’re grown and have families of their own, I’ve been blessed to have her with me during at least some of my many international travels.
When we were pastoring our last church, our spiritual eyes were opened to Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus’ foretelling of the judgment of the sheep and the goats. We began to re-order our priorities, and in 2002, Heaven’s Family was birthed. The Lord has blessed this ministry, and He’s added some very special and gifted staff members.
I’m happiest when I’m teaching God’s Word, either in writing or for my YouTube channel. I also enjoy being out in God’s creation, so on those occasions when I have some time, you’ll find me hiking a mountain path or kayaking a Pennsylvania stream.
Becky loves to serve, and throughout our married life she has cared for refugees around the world and who have been resettled in the U.S. She currently directs Heaven’s Family’s prayer ministry, and she serves the frequent visitors whom we host at our home. She is the love of my life.
We started Heaven’s Family when we were in our early 40s. Now that we are in our early 60s, we’ve had to slow down some. Thankfully, we live near all of our children and grandchildren, and not far from the world-famous town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania!
