God himself, He is our treasure.
His global cause, it is our own.
In truth and love, we will endeavor.
To draw all nations to His throne.

This has been our pursuit since we said "I do" to each other on June 23rd, 1990. Today, our fun-filled tribe of five lives off of a dirt road in a home devoted to writing and reflection an hour-ish north of Rivendell.

Through the miracle of adoption, we are the overjoyed parents of three outrageously creative children all of whom have mild to moderate special needs ranging from Asperger’s to en-utero meth exposure. Our eldest is gifted with animation genius, our middle is graced with extroverted compassion, and our youngest loves all-things-Lego.

We home school part-time, parent full-time, and laugh a lot to stay sane... and we are the happy guardians of four rescued dogs, one odd cat, and nine unusually social chickens.

Throughout each season of our ministry together, two emphases have remained constant: missional living and mentoring hearts. From University students to professionals in the marketplace, we are continually investing in the next generation of leaders and learners.

Dr. Barry J. Chole is a minister and professional mentor to men in leadership. He enjoys family time, gardening, fishing, golfing, Earl Grey (hot), and his mother-in-law's Mexican food.

Dr. Alicia B. Chole is a speaker, writer, and professional mentor who loves thunderstorms, organic earthy teas, and anything with jalapenos. Visit www.aliciachole.com to hear her heart and explore her resources.
