Eight years ago, Bud and Donna began meeting with about a dozen people in their backyard in Allentown. Horizon Church has since grown to 150 and will soon have their first building.
"Planting a church has been probably the most liberating and rewarding experience in my ministry," Bud says.
"Evangelical made the Bible real, accessible, and instilled in me a love for God and the Bible," Bud says.
Another ministry highlight was the creation of a transition ministry for women recently released from prison, Hope House.
"Hope House was one of the most gratifying experiences of my ministry," Bud says. "While it was difficult and sometimes heartbreaking to work with these women, it was also a blast to see lives being changed by Jesus and the love of the staff and volunteers at Hope House."
