Married 32 years, Brent and Barb have 5 grown children & 7 grandchildren. Brent is a pastor who believes he was clearly led to leave an associate ministry on a church staff to create and co-direct this marriage/family ministry. (God is full of surprises! ) God continues to direct his steps in ministry, as He blesses Brent and those He brings to Rapha for encouragement, education, accountability, counsel, prayer and healing. Barb is a highly trained licensed therapist, but her main foundational pathway in counseling is Biblical Truth! Barb's husband & family bring her great joy. She also finds joy in the privilege of walking alongside couples and individuals, as she witnesses them grow closer to what God has designed them to be. What an ongoing adventure!
In addition to being blessed with ministry opportunities, Brent enjoys Bible study, carpentry, road trips with Barb, and eating Barb's famous apple pie! Barb enjoys gardening with God (ask her what she means sometime), road trips with Brent, reading English cottage mysteries, and lots & lots of laughter!
