Katie, after being dramatically born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, also attended Rhema Bible Training Center. After graduating in 1994, she then worked for and traveled with a prominent lady evangelist, carrying revival around the world. Through this she met Todd and they were married in July of 1999. Through their combined ministry, they have traveled throughout the US and in twenty three countries of the world, with several trips to some of those countries.
Todd and Katie left the position in Tulsa in 2001 to go full-time into evangelism and international crusades.
