Former Communications Coordinator

Brad and Cynthia Dirrim have been foster parents for over 20 years. In that time, through the sacrifices that they have made, through the pain they have experienced, and through the joys they have been a part of, they have grown in their understanding of what it means to love as Jesus loved.

A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:34-35

Foster parenting can be a thankless job. It is difficult, and at times frustrating. Yet, as the Dirrims can attest, bringing the mission field into their home has been an incredible blessing to both of them, as well as their biological children. Watch this video as they share about what Brad describes as "one of the greatest callings that you can have."
