OUR FOUNDERS

Born and raised in the Philippines,

DANI and REZ SINDAC have served as church planters and pastors in the Philippines, Arizona and Texas.

Kids have been in the hearts of Rez and Dani for some time, from the raising of their own to ministering to the children of others in the Philippines and in America. I've known Rez now for thirteen years from when I was invited to join her in the publishing of a magazine directed to large and megachurches. Her Christian witness is strong and certain, and with Dani, they will do marvelous things for Jesus and for the world.
