ken & Linda Helser
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 who come to the 18 Inch Journey by hosting bible studies, morning devotionals and 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 still true today as Ken and Linda do everything out of the overflow of their love for family.
