The Ballards began their full time ministry in Northern Alabama with addiction counseling and dicipleship. From there they served as youth pastors in two Arkansas churches for a total of 7 1/2 years. During this time, Kerri also served as a team leader for a non-profit mission agency where she lead short-term mission trips.
In 2015 they had an opportunity to serve in Uganda, Africa. Tony's focus was dicipleship, mentoring, preaching, and volunteering in a children's home. Kerri worked as an Office Manager for Amazima Ministries.
After returning to the US, the Ballards came to serve at CompACT Family Services.
