Walker Ministry Fund
We are both committed to serving the Lord together at Heaven’s Family, where each day we are privileged to serve the “least of these” as Jesus spoke to us about in Matthew 25. We marvel at how God has brought us together with this wonderful ministry and as husband and wife.
Jody: I was born and raised in Somerset, Pennsylvania. Although I was raised in a local church, my heart for the Lord really caught flame in college after reading Revolution in World Missions and Road to Reality, both by K.P. Yohannan.
Wanting to make an eternal difference with my life, I joined the team at Heaven’s Family in Pittsburgh, PA as an intern in November of 2010, linking my life with our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world. I was invited to join the staff full-time in April of 2011.
Elisabeth: I came to know Jesus in my early teen years. My desire since has been to obey His command to take care of widows and orphans (James 1:22). I jumped at an opportunity to join Heaven’s Family after high school.
I got to know Jody as we worked side by side during his internship. Jody eventually asked my father, David Servant, for his blessing to marry me. (You can actually see him proposing by clicking here!) We were married during the summer of 2012. In early 2014, we had our first son, Jonathan. In 2018, we were blessed to adopt our foster son, Richard, as well as give birth to our second biological son, Nathaniel.
Together we enjoy reading, hiking and basking in the Lord’s presence as we try our hand at homesteading in the heart of Amish country. At Heaven’s Family, Jody spends much of his time serving as the director of Donor Discipleship, while I have several administrative duties that utilize my passions for fundraising and marketing.
