Hud and Nancy’s ministry focus is the interior spiritual and psychological development of a person. This is crucial and of central significance to effectiveness in life and ministry. Leaving a life long transformative impact goes beyond any metric. So many pressing “demands” and “needs”, masque the real interior substance of our lives. It is possible to have great strategy, skill, and expertise, but a shriveled soul. Without wholeness, the ultimate influence of our lives and ministry will be diminished.
Our cry and message is for people, especially leaders—to “grow up” from the inside out. This is our passion, our life message, and our calling. This is an uncomfortable and unpopular message, that we believe God is gracing us to deliver through the end of our race.
Hud is a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado, and North Texas State University. Nancy went to Seattle Pacific University and graduated from Texas Wesleyan University, with a Masters from North Texas State University. She’s been a substitute teacher in the public school systems in TX and CO. for 25 years.
