Speakers: Dennis & Aaron Wallace (Father & Son)

   Dennis and his wife, Ladonna, ministered in the Kansas West Conference of the United Methodist Church for 36 years, serving first the Arlington and Abbyville United Methodist Churches.  From there they served the Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Abilene, and recently retired having served the Asbury United Methodist Church in Wichita,  Kansas.

   Dennis is particularly interested in church growth and renewal, which have been priorities in his ministry.  Dennis  continues to preach numerous evangelistic meetings and be involved as a speaker at revivals, summer camps, youth  rallies, family camps, etc. 

   Since retiring from full time pastoral ministry he has focused on missions to Zimbabwe and Kenya, preaching crusades and teaching pastors and church leaders. Currently Dennis and Ladonna reside at their farm near Arlington, Kansas and are actively involved in the Plainview Church, a small but alive country church.



   Pastor Aaron Wallace has been leading and preaching for 20 years in the local church and is the Lead Pastor at Reliance Community Church in Wichita KS.  He's passionate about helping people connect to the heart of Jesus through the Word!  His desire is to see people equipped in the gifts Jesus has given to the church (the body) to live out the gospel through their lives.  

   He has been married to his wife Kristy for 19 years and has 4 children from HS down to 1st grade.  He loves the outdoors and coaching his kids in all sports.
