Mike and Kathy love working with college students and internationals. They both started following Jesus themselves while they were in college. The McKeevers have been called to numerous serving opportunities: language school in Belgium, six years serving in Cameroon at Rain Forest International School, Christian school teaching in the U.S., hospice chaplaincy, music ministry, and most recently mobilization efforts for various organizations.
