Rev. Larry Eddings

Born in Oklahoma, the last of eleven children, Larry moved to Oregon when he was ten years of age, where he completed his elementary and high school education.  He received Jesus into his life at the age of sixteen and shortly thereafter felt a call to Christian ministry.

Larry marriedAudreyHamblenin 1951, following graduation from high school and prior to beginning college. Audrey went home to the Lord on December 6, 2014.  They had been married over 63 years.

Larry graduated in 1955 from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Philosophy.  While there he served as Student Lay Pastor at the Lincoln Street Methodist Church in Portland.  He was nineteen years of age and the average age of the congregation was sixty nine. The church officials had told him that the little church would be closed following his graduation from college. However, God had other plans and blessed his fledgling ministry.  The church remains open to this day, 2017.  While serving at Lincoln Street and attending college, their two children, a son, Gary Ray and a daughter, Teresa Marie, were born.  They now have seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Larry attended seminary at Garret Biblical Institute in Evanston, IL.  While there he served as student pastor at the Hermosa Methodist Church in Northwest Chicago.  He graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor of Divinity Degree.  He was ordained Elder in the, then, Methodist Church in the Oregon Annual Conference on May 29, 1959.

After eighteen years of pastoral ministry – six years of which were spent in finishing college and seminary, Larry experienced spiritual, emotional and physical fatigue and burnout.  During those eighteen years he had served churches in Oregon, Illinois, California and Idaho.  Ready to quit the ministry and seek other employment, he was encouraged by his bishop to take another appointment.  It was while serving in the Silverdale United Methodist Church of Silverdale, WA, thatLarry experienced a new and dynamic move of the Holy Spirit in his life.  On Epiphany, January 6, 1971, Larry wasbaptized with the Holy Spirit.

This experience moved Larry from endeavoring to “do” ministry with his own skill, energy and techniques gained through education, to allowing the supernatural power of God’s Holy Spirit minister through him.  After two heart bypass surgeries, one in 1977 and a second in 1992, Larry came to an even greater realization of the necessity to draw on the Holy Spirit’s power and gifts for Kingdom living and ministry.

He continues in ministry with Wind of the Spirit Ministries which, with his wife, he founded in 1983

Rev. Tim Johnson

Pastor Tim and Pam have been in ministry for 21 years, of which 14 of those have been spent pastoring Pfrimmer’s Chapel UMC in Corydon, Indiana.  Early in their ministry, the Holy Ghost asked them if they wanted a “normal” ministry or a “supernatural” one.  As they got on their knees and prayed together, they chose at that very moment:  Supernatural!  

 Since that decision, they have seen the Holy Ghost move in their life and ministry in incredibly anointed ways, transforming a country church of 85 in one worship service into a church of 1,200 attending 11 weekly services.

 Pastor Tim and Pam also have three adult children:  a son, Taylor, and daughter in-law, Colleen; and two daughters, Merritt and Olivia.  They also have a small pony (otherwise known as a Great Dane) named Meshach.

Rev. Debbie Line-Yencer

Debbie is a retired elder in the Michigan Area Conference of the UMC.  She serves a small country church, part time, Leaton UMC.  She served three churches full time in 19 years of active ministry. She attended Asbury College and graduated with a B.A. in psychology and graduated with a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary.  Debbie has served on the Advisory Council for Aldersgate Renewal Ministries for 7 years and has also served on the worship design team for several Aldersgate Conferences. She has taught at multiple events and has been active in Emmaus and Chrysalis.  Debbie married Ron Yencer on June 1, 2013.  Debbie has two children David and Heather and four grandchildren, Isaac, Mackenzie, Kerith, and Luke – the delights of her life.  She is now blessed with two stepdaughters and their families.  Her passion is bringing a deeper understanding of the love of the Lord to people’s lives and moving in the life changing ministry of the Holy Spirit.
