They are especially grateful to God for salvation through Jesus Christ and have a heart to empower the gospel to spread throughout the world.

Benuel runs a small construction business, doing agriculture and commercial building projects. As a family, they enjoy road trips, hunting, camping, and trips to the beach.

Dave and Barb King

Dave is the Travel Coordinator and Administrative Assistant for Flashpoint Missions and we are grateful for the amazing job he does behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly! He lives in New Holland PA with his wife, Barb.

Dave first went to Alaska in 2018 and on that trip God encountered him radically and a heart for missions and the people of Alaska came alive!  He is passionate about partnering with other believers across the nations to spread the gospel to unreached people groups.

John Henry Smucker

John is the Media Manager for Flashpoint Missions and currently resides in Paradise PA, where he runs a small construction business.

His first trip outside of the lower 48 was an Alaska mission trip with Desh and Kath in 2019 before Flashpoint was an organization. It was a trip that changed his life in a few different ways. He fell in love with Alaska but most important, he gave his life to Jesus!

He spends his free time (when it presents itself) reading, playing guitar or hanging out with friends
