After almost twenty-two years in the ministry, one mission trip changed our lives. As a pastor, I visited Zambia. About three years ago God led the missionary that was there to take a church in the States. This opened the door for our church to get involved, and after returning to Zambia five more times, God spoke to my heart about moving to Zambia as a missionary.

Who we are:
Dave and Maggie Barnhouse and our five children, Jonathan, Nathanael, Emily, Steven, and David. I trusted the Lord as my Savior during my second semester in Bible College. Prior to that, I had a head knowledge, but not a heart knowledge. My wife was saved during her senior year in high school. We met at Midwestern Baptist College.
