Carla Jennings

Pastoral Assistant

My name is Carla Jennings. I am the wife of Senior Pastor Al Jennings. I oversee the Children, Dance and Drama Ministry. I’m also a Coach to some of our Winning Group Leaders. I teach periodically during our Experiences.

My husband and I where married only 2 weeks before we packed up and moved to Tulsa, OK where he went to Bible school at Rhema Bible Training Center. I cried for months while being out of my comfort zone and wanting to go back to Fort Wayne. God lovingly intervened. I had a God Encounter of the 1st kind for me. When Bible school was over for my husband, I cried when it was time to go back to Fort Wayne and start the ministry. Since that time, God has done and is doing great things.
