Ministry Description

Our burden is to reach the children and students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We do this by partnering with evangelical churches to assist them in developing disciple-making ministries.

Our goal is for every student everywhere to hear the gospel from a friend, and for every student to be in a growing relationship with Jesus.

We minister to Ohio and West Virginia.

About Dustan

As a child, I trusted Jesus Christ for salvation when I finally understood that my works and my family played no role in my standing before God. I had finally come to the point that I understood that I was completely unworthy of any relationship with God or even receiving His forgiveness; and yet in His loving mercy and grace, He provided a way for me to be saved through His life, death, and resurrection.

As a teen, I slowly grew in my relationship with Christ, until the home going of my mother after a short battle with cancer. It was in the months that followed my mother's death that I came to realize that God had much bigger plans for my life than what I had for myself. During my freshman year of Bible college at the Word of Life Bible Institute, I surrendered my life to serving the Lord wherever and however He would lead.

During the next year-and-a-half, I simultaneously learned of Word of Life's ministry to local churches in America, and of the great need for the Gospel to reach the youth of America. We were accepted as missionaries with Word of Life in June 2010 and have been serving in Ohio since September 2011. Since then, life has changed a lot, but our burden remains’ the same: reaching Ohio with the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

My life verses are Romans 12:1-2 & Psalm 115:1.
