Growing up as a pastors son Dustin always felt the call to ministry. But after marrying his wife Jeanna in 1997 and heading into a full time worship position Dustin started becoming more and more aware of the deadness of the system he was now helping lead. After weighing the importance of God’s presence in their lives, Dustin and Jeanna picked up and quit everything to move to Kansas City and become part of the internationally known World Revival Church. Dustin and Jeanna knew they needed something fresh, new and real. World Revival Church is where they found it.
