Tom & Alane Waters

Tom & Alane continue to be passionate about seeking God's will for their lives and sharing His love and life changing power with others.  The 2019 Family Retreat theme - A Heart of Love - was born from their growing understanding of how great, yet how personal, God's love is for us in every aspect of life.   They have had spiritual highs and some deep heartache, but through it all have seen an amazing picture of God's forever love and mercy.   Though they have been in ministry for 30 years, they feel a freshness and zeal of God's grace to give their all to hasten the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Frank & Veda Barcelo

Frank & Veda Barcelo, parents to three elementary school age children, were on the fast track to career success until one day God intercepted them and called them to a major re-prioritizing of their lives.  You won't want to miss their powerful testimony of God's leading, grace and miracles in raising their family to His honor and glory.  Frank is a Federal Court Interpreter and Veda is a Baby Nurse Case Manager.  They are very active in their local church and sharing God's redeeming love with all they come in contact with.  Their three adult children all love and serve God in their lives.
