Pastor Duke Taber and Sue Ristesund were married on July 6th 2013, after what Duke calls a “Holy Spirit-led courtship.”

“For years I had asked God to send someone to me that was just as passionate about Him as I was, and here was Sue. As much as I may have doubted what was before me, I felt God saying ‘I brought her here, right to your doorstep as you asked…what are you waiting for?’”

Together, Duke and Sue have 4 grown children from previous marriages.
