President and Founder

Denny was saved by the grace of God on July 30, 2012.  Shortly after in December 2012, God called Denny to preach.  After preaching for several years in nursing homes, the local regional jail, and the rescue mission in Bristol, TN, the Lord began to burden Denny’s heart for the homeless and those who live in poverty.  After much prayer, Denny and Melissa surrendered their lives to serve on the mission field.  With the support of their home church, in June 2014, the Lord sent them to Baptist Missions to Forgotten Peoples, where they were accepted as missionaries and began to build financial support for their family.  They began working in the homeless ministry at that time.  Denny and Melissa have been married for 24 years and they have three daughters.    They are members of Beulah Baptist Church in Meadowview, VA where Dwayne Dillard serves as their Pastor.
