They are in love with their Bridegroom Jesus and long to see Malachi 4:6, “the hearts of the fathers return to the hearts of the sons and the hearts of the sons return to the hearts of the fathers.” They believe in revival and heaven invading earth!

Jacob and his wife, Shelby, have been married since August of 2012. They have 4 awesome kids (2 boys and 2 girls): Jack, Ila, Eden, and Elliyah. Jacob has been in ministry since 2004 and loves getting to be a part of discipling young people to know, follow, and love Jesus with all they are (Matthew 22:36-40). Their heart is to see families and young people mature deeply (Ephesians 4:13) in their faith in order to establish legacies of generational discipleship (2 Timothy 2:2) that is transformative and bears lasting fruit (John 15:16).
“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:18
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

Mandy and her husband, Gary, have been married since December of 2013. They have 4 beautiful daughters: Genevieve, Anne, Rebecca, and Tessa. Mandy has been in ministry since 1995 and has enjoyed seeing the Lord work in amazing ways over the years. The Cunninghams believe that children are a vital part of the body of Christ and desire to lead and equip them to become Kingdom Minded believers that bring the light of Jesus to a dark world.
“Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
