John Nunnikhoven's journey with the Lord began in the spring of 1979, when he and his wife Betty were met by the Holy Spirit during Morning Prayers at a Benedictine monastery in Weston, Vermont. The journey has taken many twists and turns through a variety of different denominations and worship experiences, but one of the major re-directions was when John was accepted into the first Centurions class. It was through the Centurions Program that he was introduced into a fellowship of like-minded believers seeking to live out their faith in all aspects of their lives.
Life since commissioning has been anything but the American retirement dream: prison ministry, working to integrate ex-inmates into society, using their home as a halfway house, publishing a daily meditation on the Psalms, publishing a devotional based on those meditations, teaching BWV to civic, political and church leaders, working in the restorative and reparative justice areas, and mowing the grass.
And now, there has been another re-direction as John is accepted into membership in The Fellowship of Ailbe and has begun working toward what, Lord willing, will become a re-awakening of the Church as a body directed into living the Kingdom in the here and now as it awaits the yet to come.VIEW ARTICLES >
Jesse Slusher and his wife Lynn experience God's grace in Quincy, Washington, where they are in their 20th year of serving and pastoring Faith Community Church. They have four children, two still at home, and three grandchildren. Jesse once took a spiritual gifts assessment and scored highest in "missionary," so he considers himself a missionary to his community and pastor to the people he serves at Faith.
Besides preaching, counseling, and other general duties of a pastor, he works with the church youth. They are developing a youth intern program to get the youth more involved in the life flow of opportunities and leadership within our local church and in the mission field. We run a Celebrate Recovery program weekly and have a strong emphasis on small groups.
Faith Community is not part of a denomination, though Jesse is a member of Ministers Fellowship International, which provides accountability, covering, and relationship. The church is evangelical/charismatic/reformed in its flavor, ministry and doctrine. They have strong relationships with other Bible believing churches and pastors in the city, and cooperate in united prayer and worship regularly.
Jesse's other interests, passions and joys include his grandchildren, hiking, writing, gardening, and art.
Sam is a transplanted Southerner who moved to northern California during grade school. Although a church-goer, it was during his first year in college that he sensed something not right with his soul. Through friends who invited him to a Christian college ministry, he was challenged that faith in God included becoming a "follower" of Jesus along with accepting His offer of forgiveness. In John 8:31, he read, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
In the summer of 1972, while sitting on a beach in Florida, Sam asked Jesus be the Lord of his life, and from that point, God began unfolding his life's purpose.
Sam serves as the managing editor of the Worldview Church. He has been an Evangelical Free Church pastor for over twenty years and is a graduate of Cal State University (BA), Denver Seminary (MDiv) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (DMin). His Kingdom missional focus is to provide training to evangelical leaders to see relationships covenantally and live accordingly. He lives in beautiful northern Michigan with his wife, Meredith; they are the parents of five children.VIEW ARTICLES >
Tommy Daniel was born in Miami, Florida, went to high school in New York City, graduated from Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tennessee. Later he attended Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, Tennessee. The best part of college years was meeting Lynne, my wife of 44 years now. God has blessed us with three superstar children--Eve, Todd, and Nathan. They have multiplied the blessing with six grandchildren to date. As a fulltime minister I served churches in Bernie, Missouri, Miami, Florida, Cleveland, Ohio, Knoxville, Tennessee, and Nashville where we now live.
I made my initial confession of faith and was baptized into Christ at age 18 largely as a result of having godly parents. I cannot remember a time when I was not in and around church and the village of faith. My journey has not been without its trials and sufferings. In my forties and fifties I had left fulltime ministry and allowed myself a disconnect between my life of faith and my daily walk, between my Sunday and my weekday. Christ did not let go of me; He rescued me from myself. My wife often reminded me "Satan is sifting you like wheat", but your family and Jesus are praying for you. Today I am grateful to accept God's daily grace and fellowship. It is life. The Spirit has given me back my family and a deep call on my life to help others who need rescuing. I am the founder and executive director of a non-profit called Next Right Step and a minister of the gospel.
Perhaps this is not the bio you might be expecting. I only know “that I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation” (Romans 1:16). God delivered me from idolatry and the kingdom of darkness and "transferred me to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." (Colossians 1:12-14). I was born again again. As in the old gospel hymn, “Down upon my knees Jesus lifted me!” My only boast and surety is the love of God shown to me in the cross of Jesus.
"Thou, O Lord art a shield about me, You're my Glory, You're the lifter of my Head! Hallelujah!...Salvation belongs to the Lord…” Psalm 3:3-4,8.
“I love the Lord because He has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy…For You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling; I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living….What shall I render to the Lord for all his benefits to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows to the Lord in the presence of all His people. O Lord, I am your servant...” Psalm 116:1,8-9,12-14,16.
