Most recently, Anne is founder of The Mission on the Mountain, a ministry to teach, equip, activate and launch anyone who wants to grow in their faith through dynamic retreats and online teachings. Anne is passionate about sharing her faith and does so in a way that engages and inspires.
Catholic speaker and founder of From His Heart Ministries
Barbara grew up on the West Coast, and as a student, had a life changing encounter with the love of Christ. She crossed the country to Ashland, Virginia where she learned a life of prayer, worship, and devotion at an international ministry community. Her hands-on training included kid’s camps, inner city ministry, missions, ministry to the poor, and crusades around the world.
Barbara was part of the staff at the Calvary Campground in Ashland, Virginia for over 20 years. Her ministry experience is wide and varied, from living in Hong Kong to minister in Asia, to living in Jerusalem, to being on staff at a street mission in San Diego, Ca to minister to the needs of the homeless during the beginning of the AIDS outbreak.
She has ministered all over the world, has been a missionary, an evangelist, and pastor. She has spent the last few years traveling the U.S. and the world over conducting worship seminars, retreats, and conferences, leading missions trips, offering prayer and counseling, and seeing thousands healed and set free inside and out, equipping lives for the Glory of God.
Barbara didn’t know until recently that she had been baptized as a child in the Catholic Church, and after much prayer and deliberation, she received the Rite of Confirmation in St Paul, Minnesota in April of 2013. Today, based in Iowa, Barbara continues to be involved in a wide spectrum of Christian endeavor.
A widow for 8 years, Barbara has recently married! She lives in Iowa with her husband, Jeff. She is the joyful mother of 4 and grandmother of 2! Together she and Jeff have 8 children and 10 grandkids!
