Through the Fire Ministries began very simply over 2 decades ago, as a supportive mainstay for my calling to music ministry, in both churches and prisons. God has blessed and expanded it since then, to include in addition, women's Biblical counseling, facilitating women's Bible studies, many short term mission trips, and taking my part in an international motorcycle ministry (through my husband Herb). I praise God for His great wisdom and mercy to me.
We endeavor to honor, love, praise and glorify God by proclaiming His Word, and singing His songs; reaching out as an example to others, to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to those who are spiritually lost, hurting and hopeless.
Soldiers for Jesus MC
With my husband Herb’s Soldiers for Jesus MC (international) motorcycle ministry, God has opened up new doors for me to form many new relationships, and to minister to the women in the different motorcycle clubs. What an opportunity! I have been asked to lead the ladies worship music again at the SFJMC East Coast rally in Nashville TN! What an honor!
