How has God brought you to where you are today?

We have found that God does not reward obedience as we might anticipate, but by his constant presence and guidance. He has challenged, molded, and equipped us with spiritual gifts as we have had need of them. God has matured us into teachers and disciplers both by word and by lifestyle.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

God has given us a ministry of church leadership development through teaching, formally and informally, and through discipleship. Amazingly, just after all our kids had left home, God gave us a group of young single adults to mentor. We had never visualized ourselves working with such a group, and again, God equipped us for ministry!

How does your partnership with Calvary help you be more effective in your work?

Calvary has been one of our church homes since college days. We have many solid friendships that started at Calvary. Calvary stands firm on the Gospel of Christ and this encourages and anchors us, as well. In financial terms, Calvary is our largest partner. Calvary’s prayer support is incalculable.

How can people stay connected with you and your ministry, e.g. email newsletter, blog, social media?

  • The best way to stay connected with us is via email: .
  • We send out a monthly email update, which is ministry-informative, but which is less formally written than our official prayer letters sent by snail mail 3-4 times a year. Anyone can be added to either or both mailing lists by a request sent to the email above.
  • We can be in touch by skype, and our skype contact information is available upon individual request.
  • If anyone wants to be friends with us on Facebook, they might learn a bit more about who we are and how we think, although we don’t put critical information on our pages. They can send a “friend” request to David L Powell or Rachael Powell.
