We are excited to announce that Fred and Marvia Miller are ing the Dirt Ro Network family to serve as pastors to rural pastors. In this role, the Millers will listen to, hug on, love on, pray for and encourage pastors on behalf of Dirt Ro Network. Thankfully, there are not two people more suited for the task. Both Fred and Marvia are encouragers at heart. Folks who were total strangers just a short time before are receptive to what the Millers have to say. Even when the conversation does not become a serious discussion of the Gospel, the aroma of Jesus will linger with their new friend long after they have gone their separate ways.
The Millers are uniquely suited for the task of encouraging rural pastors because of their backgrounds in missions, ministry and rural Kansas.
Marvia grew up as a Kansas farm girl in rural Ness County. Recognizing her love for the Lord and passion for music, an influential teacher encouraged Marvia to attend Friends Bible College in Haviland, Kansas.
She thrived in the college environment actively participating in a of traveling ministries before graduating with a degree in Bible. Fred was born in the Belgian Congo and lived in Central Africa for 20 years.
He went to boarding school at the age of seven and, with only an occasional exception, lived in dorms until he married. He attended Friends Bible College for four years, majoring in Biblical studies.
He then went on to Pittsburg State University where he pursued a degree in industrial technology. Some years before out in an African banana patch, he had given the Lord his list and asked for a great wife.
From that day on his prayer was for God to make him the kind of man she would need, and to make her the kind of lady he would need. The year before they were married Fred and Marvia worked together supply pastoring a small Federated Church in Wilmore, Kansas. From the start, the Millers have worked as an effective team. War in Rwanda and Burundi closed the door to Africa, so Fred took a temporary job operating a two-unit-web-press for a newspaper in Colby, Kansas.
Eight months later, Colby Community College asked Fred to put their newest printing press into production. The Print Shop became known as a place where anyone could come for prayer and spiritual encouragement.
During that same time period, the Millers opened what became a successful wedding and portrait studio, providing high quality professional portraiture to the area for more than thirty years. After retirement, they made a of trips to Ecuador and one to Papua New Guinea to assist churches, work on special projects and make promotional videos. Fred and Marvia still live in Colby where they raised their two children. Today they have nine grandchildren and are called mom, dad, grandpa and grandma by many others who for a variety of reasons have became part of the extended Miller family.
And my friend, that Includes You!!! As members of Dirt Road Network, the Millers will be self-funded. In addition to their travel expenses, the Millers hope to build a fund to meet specific needs they encounter in the rural churches they visit. If you would like to support them with travel expense or contribute to their rural church needs fund, please consider making a donation. To donate, simply. Any donation made towards the Millers will ultimately help Dirt Ro Network encourage and champion rural pastors.
Thank you for your continued support of the Dirt Ro Network and our rural ministry mission.
