Your potential impact on your grandkids can be monumental. Dave and Ann Wilson host authors Larry Fowler & Tim Kimmel, who challenge you to grandparent with God’s heart for the next generation.

His 40 years plus of ministry include experience as youth pastor, part of the Awana staff as missionary, training staff, international director, and Executive Director of Training. More recently his role consisted of connecting with and coaching Children’s Ministry leaders from megachurches across America.
