Happy Father's Day! One things fathers do best is inspire us to follow in their footsteps. These CUW fathers are living proof, having inspired their children to serve in ministry, just as they have. The following stories are excerpts from the most recent 'Hearts Together' magazine.

Isaiah and Ron Mudge

If you were to ask Isaiah Mudge to sum up the qualities of an effective pastor, he would readily describe his father: someone who cares deeply about others and, at the same time, is unwilling to budge from the truth of God’s Word. Read Isaiah and Ron’s story.


Mikayla and Eric Kennaugh

While it wasn’t a foregone conclusion that Mikayla Kennaugh would follow her father into church work, there were some pretty clear early indicators. Read Mikayla and Eric’s story.
