Inspirational Leader, Prayer Minister, and Natural Born Teacher

Judy has a passion for helping the

hurting and lost through prayer. She founded

Nephros Ministries in 2010, providing prayer support to a wide range of individuals, including professionals and those struggling with addictions, sex trafficking, and being orphaned.

Judy's background as a homeschool mom, high school teacher, and adjunct professor at Bethel University has equipped her with the ability to connect with people from different walks of life.

With her husband Daryl, Judy founded

Affirming You in 2015. This nonprofit created Christian birthday cards to speak hope and identity to the downhearted and hopeless.  Currently, a committed team sends over 5,000 cards to inmates a year. 

Passionate Prayer Warrior, Encourager, Growing In Faith 

Daryl has grown in his faith and teaching abilities overcoming his natural tendency to be an introvert. He has served as an

adult Sunday school teacher, delivered kid's sermons, and participated in various activities

with his children. Daryl worked as a senior systems computer analyst and is now the bookkeeper for Nephoros Ministries, Affirming You, and Restoring The Ruins. 

Daryl is passionate about prayer and

encourages faith to grow in other men

through a weekly men's study.

Drawing from his experiences as a husband, father, and intercessor, Daryl has joined Judy to speak on a growing number

of topics that include prodigals and rebuilding broken relationships.

Engaging Speakers, Drawing From
Life's Experiences

Bethel Sozo prayer and have used their skills to bring healing locally and overseas. Daryl also nursed Judy back to health after her bicycle accident in 2020.


Prior to the accident, Judy was an

experienced educator, communicating

effectively to diverse audiences. She used her personal life experiences to inspire and share scientific knowledge to explain biblical truths.

Judy has spoken at various events and

platforms, including conferences, retreats, seminars, radio, and social media.




Married since 1982, Judy and Daryl have raised five successful children

who live in Minneapolis, Seattle, and India. Their family has grown to include four beautiful

daughter-in-loves and one son-in-love. Daryl and Judy love it when they have time to connect with them. They now have two grandchildren they enjoy when time allows. 


 Daryl and Judy enjoy adventures which include: 

 hiking, kayaking, bird watching, and traveling in the States and abroad to foreign countries.
