God called Frank and Lyn into full-time ministry later in life after a 15-month season which provided Frank first-hand understanding of depression, suicidal compulsion and instantaneous deliverance.
His inside-knowledge concerning spiritual battle― and Lyn’s into hearing the voice of God― have been a resource to many globally.
Consequently, their ministry focus is to equip people to “serve God by his Spirit, boast in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh” (Gal 3:3).
