David & Marie


Serving in Guatemala, Latin America Caribbean

Our Passion

We share a message of hope, healing and freedom for people at risk. This is accomplished through restoration ministries, evangelism, leadership development and church planting.

“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart.” Psalms 107: 13-14

Current Ministry

The national church of Guatemala has invited us to help develop restoration & reconciliation ministries. We will be developing residential programs, prison, school, and family restoration ministries, as well as training leaders in the local church to minister in these areas.

We use the Living Free small group strategy that has helped over 800,000 people, learn to face life's struggles, overcome life controlling problems, addictions, life’s issues and help them to move toward freedom and wholeness in Christ.

We desire to partner with the local church in developing compassion ministry to the poor and to see the local church equipped to bring those in bondage out of darkness.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 “So that if anyone is in Christ, that one is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation

Reaching the Fourth World

The fields are white unto harvest, one of those fields is the 4th world; which is "the subcultures of a nation where drug addicts, alcoholics and others with life destroying habits are found. These are some of the most ready, ripe and reachable peoples that are open to a message that brings them hope. These candidates are waiting for someone to tell them that they can be cured and trans-formed, and given a new life, through the power of God in Jesus Christ.” Don Wilkerson, founder of Global Teen Challenge.

The harvest is ready and waiting! Please pray and partner with us on a monthly basis. May you be blessed as you remember us and the lost of Central America. 

Previous Ministry

Early on David was a missionary in Asia-Pacific, and Marie was in Latin America. Later as a married couple they helped a church plant in Minneapolis, they were directors of Columbus Teen Challenge (OH), and pastored an inner-city church in Columbus.

They have served in Honduras, Costa Rica, & Panama as Missionaries since 2005. They have trained and developed Teen Challenge leadership using Teen Challenge and Living Free materials. Their last term was in Panama where they redeveloped the Teen Challenge ministry and incorporated the Living Free ministry to facilitate discipleship within the church for those struggling with addictions, strongholds, and bondage.
