we thank god for our staff and faithful ministry leaders

Whole Heart Ministries would not exist without the faithful staff, leaders, and volunteers who come alongside to help us reach, in the words of C.S. Lewis, “further up, and further in” for God. It is easy to say that Whole Heart is the ministry of Clay and Sally Clarkson, but that just doesn’t tell the whole story. Whole Heart is a partnership of people who all share a heart for helping parents and expanding the kingdom of God. Here are some of the people who keep Whole Heart beating:


The Clarkson Family

Whole Heart Ministries is a family ministry—our message is about the family, and our family is about the message. The Clarkson children have all followed God into their own life journeys, and yet we all remain connected by the ministries of Whole Heart.
