Sumlins Move To Tennessee
As God continues to expand our ministry beyond the borders of JH Ranch California, we have established our home base in Knoxville, TN to better meet the ministry needs for which God has provided. We believe that God has raised up leaders in and around this part of the country who are committed to transforming their communities in part through our marriage and family ministry.
It has been said, “If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat.” Perhaps this is what motivated the Apostle Peter as he heeded our Lord’s calling to simply “Come” (Matthew 14:22-33). Water-walkers are faith driven people with a deep sense of trust in God to lead them beyond the safety and security of their boats to an everlasting adventure of a lifetime. No doubt, Peter’s water-walking encounter with Jesus not only delivered him to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, but also aided him in getting to the other side of his faith.
Like Peter, the last several years have been a water-walking encounter with the Lord as we continue to follow His loving call to step out in faith. After much prayer and divine affirmation, we have followed God’s lead in relocating our home base from Texas to Tennessee. We believe that God is and will continue to use our marriage and family ministry to transform local communities in the Midwest through the good news of Jesus Christ.
The Lord increasingly continues to pave the way for our ministry presence in states like Alabama, California, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas. We have also been blessed with international opportunities to minister in various parts of Africa, Europe, and most recently New Zealand.
As marriage missionaries, we raise our own support to sustain the travel and resources required to do the job for which God has called us. After prayerful consideration, if you feel led to support this ministry financially please visit our donation page to indicate your level of ministry support.
