Darlene has been a Christian for as long as she can remember. Baptized as an infant, she was raised in a Christian home, attended church and Sunday school regularly, and received her education through Lutheran schools. She came into a personal relationship with Jesus in her mid-twenties at a Lutheran church retreat. In her late twenties, she was introduced to “something more” – the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord called her to homeschool her four children for seventeen years and she and her family have been blessed to participate in several mission trips together. Darlene loves to worship the Lord through prophetic dance. Her main spiritual gifts are teaching, discernment and words of knowledge.
She began learning the Elijah House principles in the late ‘90s from Ron and Sherry. Since that time, she has continued to walk out those principles in her own life as well as the lives of her husband and children. She is forever grateful to God for the transforming power of His Word. After completing Elijah House 201 and 202, she became a facilitator for the EH School of Prayer Ministry. She was part of Refreshing Spring Ministries as a prayer minister for two years where she facilitated the EH Shame seminar, the Trauma Seminar and the Healing Hearts of the Children seminar. She has been married to Carl for 40+ years and has four married children, and 7 grandchildren, all following the Lord. We are grateful to have Darlene as part of our team.
