Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.

Megan is the wife of David and mother of 21 month old twin boys, Carson and Cole. She is originally from Aitkin, Minnesota (about 2.5 hours north of the Twin Cities.) She became a believer during her freshman year at the University of Minnesota and then got involved in Campus Outreach. Her family lives in south Minneapolis and attend the Downtown campus, where their particular involvement is with small groups and the Sunday night service.
Kim grew up in Arizona and went to college in Arkansas on a softball scholarship, and there met and married her husband of nine years, Cache. After hearing John Piper's sermons online, they moved up to Minnesota in 2004 to go to Bethlehem and to gain maturity, training and pursue what God would have for them in missions. During that time, God showed them that He would like them to be involved in biblical counseling with the intent to move overseas and be able to counsel other missionaries while doing local church ministry. They moved to Arizona in the summer of 2010 and back to Minnesota in the summer of 2011. They have two girls, Addisyn (4) and Elliana (3).
