About Us

Our Story

Ministry is tough. Many have been called but few are staying. Our goal is to encourage men and women to hang in there and see what a faithful God can do with a faithful servant.

You don’t have to do it all. You just have to stay faithful. Our dream is to see more people who serve in ministry surviving and thriving.

Founders Dace and Jacque Clifton

We have been married for 17 years and have two wonderful children. We serve in full-time ministry roles now, however, our lives were on a very different course when we got married. We met and married while in college. Although we both grew up in the church, we soon discovered we had a lot of growing up to do. We were pursuing careers outside of ministry, chasing what we thought would make us happy. Thankfully God intervened, shattered our plans, and did something much better.

Now our purpose is to live as followers of the Savior in joyful and intimate fellowship with Him. We have a passion to help and encourage those in ministry.
