Brenda Minton

Brenda Minton grew up on a farm outside of Crane, Missouri. The 45 minute bus drive taught her to use her imagination and it paved the way for her career as author of more than 30 books with Harlequin Love Inspired. For a time she broke and trained horses. That experience did not lead to her chosen career - being a jockey. Today she is a pastor’s wife, children’s ministry worker and mom to 8, both biological and adopted. And it is true. Eight is Enough.

Barbara FairChild

Barbara Fairchild’s vibrant personality, her love for humor and storytelling along with her extraordinary talent for singing country and gospel music make her one of the finest entertainers you will ever see. The power of her beautiful voice to affect the listener came front and center when her #1 hit, “THE TEDDY BEAR SONG,” hit the airways in the winter of 1972. She has a sincere warmth that flows out of her to everyone she meets, whether on the street or as a member of the audience in one of her shows.

Barbara performs with her very talented husband, Roy Morris. They are really in love, and it shows. In the tradition of other husband and wife teams that brought laughter to millions, Barbara and Roy have a natural flare for comedy that is delightful to experience.

For 25 years Barbara's Sunday Morning Worship Service that began in 1992 has been a source of inspiration to the thousands of Branson visitors who attended each year. They are now more flexible to travel and take concert dates and churches that they haven't been able to because of the Branson schedule. They will schedule special dates in Branson including their special Veteran’s Service, which is so important to them, held during Branson’s Veteran’s Homecoming Week in November. Barb and Roy believe we owe more to our Veteran’s than we could ever repay and take every opportunity to let our nation’s heroes know how important they are. Barbara and Roy’s faith is their foundation and the most important aspect of their lives.

Near and dear to her and her husband is the Encounter Ministry. The Encounter Ministries mission is to create an environment where Real People can come as they are regardless of their past or present circumstances. To build a community of Real People building authentic lifelong relationships with each other as they experience and grow in their personal relationship with Jesus through the truth of His word and the power of His Holy Spirit. To establish a culture where people are not divided by church background or denominations but where the love, grace and freedom found in Jesus is the focus.

She first attended Ashes to Beauty 5 years ago and has served in the ministry ever since. She is a co-leader of the Ozark post that meets weekly and her husband co-leads the Men in Nixa weekly. Together they host several Family/Wife Nights yearly promoting a Jesus centered marriage and family. The Encounter Ministry was the tool that changed everything for her personally, in her marriage, family, and living everyday on purpose for Jesus Christ.
