Special Guests: Sarah Mourer & Kyle McAllister
Sarah Mourer – For many people, college is the springboard to propel them into what will be path of their future. Sarah thought that she found her freedom and identity as a lesbian in college. She followed that path for ten years as she earned her B.S. in General Science and M.A. in Secondary Education, Chemistry. Jesus laid a massive fork in her path and called her to choose between Him and her current trajectory. Sarah chose Jesus and He immediately delivered her from same-sex attraction and laid a call on her heart to begin a new path toward foreign missions. She is six years into this new journey with Jesus and it has been more fulfilling than she could have imagined. While people may see some unbelievers who seem to be “hard cases” or “too difficult to save without a miracle”, Sarah likes to remind them that God is still in the miracle business. Sarah’s testimony was featured in the Pentecostal Evangel in April, 2015 (http://penews.org/news/deliverance-from-samesex-attraction).

Kyle with a BA in Organizational Leadership Brittany with a BA in Mass Communication: Public Relations. We are now both credentialed ministers and work together in all aspects of the ministry.
