founders of A Place for the Heart

artist  /  Musician

Ken and Linda founded A Place for the Heart in 1986 and have been stewarding the mission of this land for over 30 years. Ken and Linda pour into the hearts of the students that come to the 18 Inch Journey by hosting bible study and morning devotionals as well as family meals around their table.  They are the original Cageless Birds, the first of our community to explore their relationship with God through art.  They continue to travel around the world ministering to students of Youth With a Mission (YWAM).

The greatest fruit of Ken and Linda’s life is family.  Long ago, the Lord revealed to them that the foundation of their ministry began with family.   This is true today and as Ken and Linda do everything they do out of the overflow of their love for family.
