Hi, I’m Terry. I’m married to Ron Spradlin and we have five children and ten grandchildren. My personal hobbies include family, friends, cooking, meal planning, eating out, travel, photography, comedy, walking, swimming, going to park, visiting museums, reading, writing, listening to music, playing on computer, broadcasting and journalism. In August 2011, I started genealogy research through ancestry and built my tree to over 10,000. I love history and establishing family roots. In July 2017, I started a healthier lifestyle and lost 55 pounds. I work well with children, moms, brides to be, college age, retired and working professionals. My favorite music is Pandora listening to Kim Walker Smith and Jason Upton. My favorite shows are romantic comedy and cooking shows. My favorite old school television was Andy Griffith Show. I studied at University of Tulsa, with emphasis in Business Administration and Marketing; I've also studied at Victory Bible Institute, Biblical Studies and Missions, Rhema Bible College, and ARMI Bible Institute. Places of employment in the late 70's and early 80's were modeling for magazines and television commercials; Miss Teen Tulsa Pageant, jazz dancing for Tulsa Roughnecks; appearance movie Rumble Fish. In mid to late 1980's I worked for Tyler Dawson, oil and gas, accounting department; Lowrance Electronics, marketing, advertising and sales. Late 80's early 90's I became a mother, and I chose to stay home and opened day care so that I could be with my kids. After they started school I went back to work for Aadvantage Media, advertising analysis, auditing expense reports for 250 in-field personnel. In February 1995 I had a major life change and I gave my heart to Christ. I was standing in my bedroom looking out my window and I simply said, "Lord, I love you so much. I'm not asking you to give me anything, and I know my life is a mess, but if there is anyway my messed up life can bring you glory, then I want to offer you my life." That true heartfelt confession was the beginning of a major transformation in my life. Up to this point, I had been in and out of church my whole life. I had visited several denominations including Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Catholic, First Christian and Mormans. But something was still missing. I just couldn't seem to get in right until that heartfelt prayer standing alone in my bedroom. At that moment I experienced the Peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding. My life has never been the same since that day. The greatest influences in my life were my father, Doyle, and my mother Peggy. They were "Easterites". That's my word for we went to church once a year on Easter. Dad and mom knew they were sinners, and they believed that Jesus Christ was the son of God. They actually showed more reverence and respect to God than most full times Christians that I've seen across the world. Next my grandma Dorothy and grandpa Warren. They were Pentecostal. My Grandpa Warren was deacon in the church and played the guitar and harmonica. One of my favorite memories was listening to them sing, "There's A Light At The River." My grandma Dorothy's father was a Baptist preacher and she was an ordained minister and two of her brothers were also ordained. One of her brothers helped build and establish the Assembly of God churches from California to Missouri. Next was my Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Naomi. When I was little they used to take me to Pentecostal Holiness church on Sundays. I loved my time with them and my cousins Angela and Lisa. In February 1997, Ron and I established Abundant Rain Ministries, Inc. Through the years we have ministered the gospel throughout the world in Nicaragua, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Rwanda, Africa, Rome & Pisa, Italy, Israel, Russia, Republic of Panama, San Blas Islands and across the United States in churches and Tent Revivals in parks and public places, and in our home community of Coweta, Oklahoma. This year I'm looking forward to continuing to develop and establish Hidden Treasures, Publishing, Broadcasting, Journalism. My main goal and emphasis of prayer this for 2018 is to walk in love of God by continuing to develop the fruit of the spirit in my heart with my main focus starting with loving and adoring my husband. I value the gift of life and recognize our marriage as a gift from God. I am with Ron 24 hours a day. So I'm thinking if I love, honor, cherish and respect my husband this will impact every area of my life including my family and our "ministry". I recognize the gift of marriage given to us by the love of God. And I believe I can honor God by honoring my husband. My husband is my best friend and I love being with him. One of my favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a ringing gong or clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing...
I am married to Kristie Thompson. I have two sons. John Thompson studied at Oral Roberts University. and Victory Bible Institute.
DAVID (DAVE) BARBER
I'm David Barber, I live in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. I grew up in the town of Fairfield in South East Iowa. I have four sisters and one brothers. I'm a veteran Marine, Proudly serving this Awesome country from 1993-1997. I enjoy playing sports, which of my favorite is baseball and basketball. I have a black Labrador named Gracie who spends a lot time with me. My interests in life are simple, I love people and to see them experience the Love and Power of God in their lives no matter what I'm doing at the moment. I love music that brings me closer to God. Thanks Toby Mac. I graduated High School and went on to a community college to study sports medicine with the goal of being a Sports Physical Therapist. I did not complete the degree but went into the United States Marine Corps. After serving this country I went to Rhema Bible Training College for two years studying in the area of Pastoring. While in Bible College I started my own business in Painting and Remodeling houses and commercial buildings. After graduating I volunteered to pioneer a youth group for a church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma which I did for five years. I also have spent some time in prison ministry serving for Redeeming Love Prison Ministry for several years and also served as a Pastor for the boys and girls at the Tulsa County Juvenile Correction Facility for several years. The Lord has also opened many doors in several countries through a dear brother in the Lord, Evangelist Frank Borda, in which I have preached the gospel of Jesus Christ through crusades, Pastors conferences and children's outreaches. I'm currently working for McDoanlds as a Manager, and volunteer as Youth Pastor here at Abundant Rain World Outreach Church since 2014, and have been to other countries with as well. I gave my heart to Christ and was spirit filled with the evidence of speaking in other tongues at the age of 5 years old. I walked away from God for many years, but He never stopped chasing me, I recommitted my LIFE to God in 1998. I have been so blessed with great influences in my life starting with my earthly father. My dad taught me how to live by faith and walk in love by years of example, teaching his kids to pray and read Gods word. Being at Rhema Bible College, started by Kenneth E. Hagin and family. I was taught the Word and ministry from many great teachers and pastors. I thank God for Pastors, Don Hughes, Ron Spradlin and John Thompson, that gave given me such great opportunities to grow in the ministry. Forever grateful to these men of God. Currently here at Abundant Rain, I'm helping teens to grow and develop a strong relationship with Jesus Christ through the teaching of Gods Word and investing of my time into their lives. This year I'm looking forward to seeing more teens come to Christ through outreaches and personal evangelism. My personal prayers and goals for 2018 are for open doors into the traveling ministry, to bring healing and Zoe life to the body of Christ through the gifts and anointing of God and to reach lost and hurting people in this world. One of my favorite scriptures is John 15:16. It says, remember that you did not chose me but I chose you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
I'm a graduate of Victory Bible Institute. I am married to Heath Mason we have four children. I enjoy worship, international missions, and I'm actively involved with our children and youth outreaches.

My personal hobbies include horseback riding, camping, hiking, rock climbing, running long distances and spending time with my boyfriend Kyler. My favorite music is Hilsong, Kari Jobe, Eddie James and much more. I enjoy watching episodes of friends and enjoy watching Heartland. I graduated from Coweta High School in 2012. In 2017 graduated from Rogers State College; Business Administration with a Management option, Sports Management and Psychology. During my time at RSU, I ran cross country and track for five years was team captain for both of these teams. While I attended RSU, I began working in Therapeutic Horseback Riding and discovered a strong passion for this industry. I worked hard and became a certified therapeutic riding instructor and continued working there four years as I spent time in college as well as working in the Communications Department on campus. After college, I did secretary work at Abundant Rain Ministries office and from there took a job for Broken Arrow High School coaching Cross Country and Track and also working in the Special Education Department as a Paraprofessional. My testimony is simple; god has always been Lord of my life and I've never known it any other way. I was raised in church and my relationship with Him grows more and more each day. I am thankful that my story is simple and that I didn't have to go through a lot of heartache. He is the greatest influence in my life and aside from him, he gave me parents and mentors in my life to have positive influences on me as well. Some other great mentors include by brother Conner and John Thompson; some great coaching staff: Toby Hummingbird and Chris McCormick, and the love of my life, Kyler Ng. My life would not be the same without the positive influences of these great people whom God so generously placed in my life. This year I am looking forward to growth and making changes in my personal life while advancing in areas where God has called me to use the gifts He has given me for His good. I am looking forward to growth in our church and establishing a solid foundation for my life. At Abundant rain I work in any areas I can. My main leadership role is on the Praise and Worship Team where I sing. I help in the nursery, the office, and help in the financial department. My goal and prayer for 2018 is to reach the community of Coweta and be of service to those around our town by using the gifts God has given me. My favorite scripture is the parable of the lost sheep in Luke 15:4 "If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? I love this scripture because it is a beautiful example of Gods love for people and the extremes He will go to just so everyone is saved. This is my constant reminder that one soul at a time makes a significant difference for the kingdom of God and that its not about the ninety-nine but its about the one.
