Meet the Team

Across my Heart Ministries started with a group of friends – friends who were committed to living lives of purity, purity that is more than just abstinence, purity that is defined as passionately pursuing the heart of God. Together, we share the truths we’ve learned about God through retreats, speaking engagements, and online blogs.
