Team Driskill Ministries: Blessing the families of the earth.

In 1988 I had the joy of marrying the love of my life. Both us graduated from Seminary together in 1990 and were ordained into the ministry as a team in 1991. When we set out on this journey together we had no idea where God would lead us but we had a vision for ministry inspired by God’s promise to Abraham and Sarah. In Genesis 12 God promises that through them all the families of the earth would be blessed. As heirs of that covenant through our faith in Christ, we believe God has called us to devote ourselves to being a blessing to the families of the earth. We have served as church planters, pastors, performers, teachers and community ministers in the beautiful mountains of Eastern Kentucky. We also served briefly in Hartsville, South Carolina. Twenty six years, four children, five churches, and three homes (with a few chickens, dogs and cats thrown in.) later we find ourselves having great opportunities to speak life into our home, church, community, and world. Our greatest joy however, is seeing our awesome children grow into wonderful men and women of God. Each of them is personally committed to speaking the life of Christ into the world in their own unique way. Let me introduce our amazing team.

This is Team Driskill. Aren't they good looking? They make me look downright handsome.

The youngest, and potentially the smartest of all of us. She loves to read Ted Dekker and similar authors. She plays guitar and piano and would rather work at Bethel Camp than eat. She has been on a mission trip to Guatemala.

I'm the coach, repairman, principal, pastor, and general goofball of this wild bunch. I also have the distinction of being the happiest man on earth. You can see why.

As you can tell, we are a boring, unsocialized, and very sheltered ministry family...not.  We have more fun than you do.
