Monty is a native Floridian – born in Plant City and raised in the metropolis of Mulberry. He attended the University of Florida where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture. For a number of years, Monty was self-employed at an agricultural equipment company all the while sensing that God was calling him to something else. In 1993, Monty knew that God was calling him into full-time ministry and has ministered locally since that time. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Kim was born in Columbia, Tennessee. God’s providence brought her to Mulberry when she was ten years old. That’s when she met Monty, the chase was on, and the rest is history. Kim has felt God’s calling on her life from a very young age. Believing that God had a place for her on the mission field, she earned a degree in Nursing from the University of Florida. What could be more perfect for God’s work – a nurse and a farmer together teaching people in third-world countries to be healthy and grow their own crops? That was Kim’s plan but God had other plans. She answered God’s call into full-time ministry in 1993, and has ministered locally since that time.
