Harvey C. Macklin
It was at the “ripe old” age of 6 that Harvey gave his life to Christ after a children’s church message. Yet it was not until his middle school years that he began to take his faith seriously. At this time, Harvey started to feel the call into ministry. As he transitioned from high school into bible college, this calling to ministry was solidified in his heart. A burden began to grow inside him to reach the broken souls of society with the hope and healing found at the Cross. Since those early years, he has served in a number of pastoral roles and as a Navy chaplain. He currently serves at a Navy hospital. Harvey resides in Lothian, MD.
Yasin S.A. Cobb
Yasin began his relationship with Jesus nearly 18 years ago. After attending a service, he responded to the leading of the Holy Spirit and has committed his life to following Christ. As he grew in his faith, Yasin began to serve in his church’s youth ministry. After several years, he began to sense that full-time ministry may be where God was calling him. Pastors and others began to confirm the calling to ministry too. Yasin and his wife, Jakki, have 4 children and currently make their home in Landing, NJ.

God used some of the most challenging situations, brought on by questionable decisions, to call Dan out of a life of self-centeredness and into relationship through the blood of Jesus Christ.
