Dave & Linda Childs

Dave and Linda joined ABF in 2007, sent out by Bethel Bible Church in Winamac, IN. Blessed with four children- Matt, Andy, Katie, and Shelley- they also help oversee all the students at ABC, demonstrating their passion for the local church: "We love to see young men and women, and especially young married couples, mentored to serve their families and to become leaders in their local church."

Why are you passionate about your role at ABC?

Helping the next generation prepare for the challenges of ministry is an investment in eternity. The training provided here at ABC is timeless and working with students of college age gives a sense that what we do will last for decades. Our positions allow us to work with them both in the classroom but especially outside. It is that personal time with them that often has the biggest impact.
