Brief Testimony of Gaylord Finch

I was born in 1951 and grew up in a small town in Northern Minnesota. Dorothy and I were married in 1970. At age 28 we started attending church with our two young children. While in the Pastor's office, I put my faith in Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I trusted Christ alone as the One who paid for my sins on Calvary's cross. He died, was buried and rose again.

Under the sound teaching of the Word of God and faithful discipleship, Dorothy and I soon felt the call of God on our lives to serve Him in full-time ministry. After Bible College and Seminary we served in various ministries. I then served as a pastor for 16 years in Northwest Arkansas and 3 1/2 years in Northern Minnesota. With a burden for the churches in America and the great struggles some of them are having, Dorothy and I sensed God leading us to help struggling churches throughout the United States. Through much prayer and wise counsel, God led us to join Rural Home Missionary Association (RHMA). The various ministries God has called us to include conflict resolution within churches, encouragement ministry to pastors and congregations, and a ministry of evangelism including evangelistic training and meetings.

Brief Testimony of Dorothy Finch

I was born in 1951. I grew up on a small farm in Northern Minnesota. At age 28 I started attending church. A lady in the church witnessed to me. She showed me in the Bible how Jesus had died on the cross for my sins, He was buried and rose again the third day. I thought it was the greatest news I ever heard. By faith I trusted Jesus Christ as my Savior.
