Dee Casper

Dee Casper is Director of the CORE Evangelism Training Program ( Dee lived 30 minutes from 3ABN World Headquarters for 21 years and had never heard of a Seventh-Day Adventist, but by the grace of God, he found the message through 3ABN TV beginning in the fall of 2006. He was baptised in 2010 at the ARISE Cornerstone programme and has been involved in ministry ever since. He has served as a Bible worker, been a Bible teacher in an academy setting, and taught in different schools of evangelism. He loves investing in young people and opening their eyes to the beauty of the Everlasting Gospel and the value that God places on each of them individually.

Sarah Casper

After years of healing work, Dee and Sarah met on Instagram. A mutual friend had told Sarah about Dee, and a couple weeks later they met in person at GYCNW. Their friendship grew over that summer, ignited by similar passions for ministry, but Sarah received a distinct call to stay single for one more year. God used that year to deepen her understanding of Him and His calling on her life in ministry. At the end of that year, Dee and Sarah decided to move forward with their friendship and begin dating. It was evident early on that the two were meant for each other and could minister even more effectively as a couple in running Core Evangelism and continuing to disciple around the country. Their passion is to help people understand their wounds and find healing in Christ. They deeply desire that the misunderstandings about God will be rewritten through their work and that people will find liberty in understanding the true meaning and healing power of the gospel for their lives.
