OUR TEAM

Mama Judy and Papa Jerry Ball, Founders

Jerry and Judy share a love for each other that began in high school and grew even stronger during their college days at Wake Forest University.  Judy majored in English Education and Jerry played football.  He was so valuable to the game that he was a “Who’s Who” nominee in American Colleges and Universities.

They married after graduation and went into education – Jerry as a coach and teacher and Judy as teacher and counselor.  They have 2 daughters and sons-in-law, 8 grandchildren, and 3 (and counting) great-grandchildren, some of whom have traveled with them to Israel, Turkey, Fiji, and on many US missions of prayer.

In 1999, they had a vision of darkness pressing in on all sides, but were encouraged by the Lord, who is the Breaker of Dawn, to not look back.  Since then, they have been engaged in fulltime international ministry, preaching the gospel and networking with others on 5 different continents who want to see God’s Kingdom come upon the earth even as it is in heaven.
