Would You Like

To Assist Our Team?

As we take the message of Identity and Freedom in Christ around the world, we will need partners. If this message is important to you, please pray about partnering with  Infusion Ministries or one of our Staff Members.

Infusion Ministries is a nonprofit organization. As such, we have no central funds. Instead, every staff member from the president of the ministry to the summer intern raises support, which serves as his or her salary. For this reason, our prayer and desire is that you would support a staff member for as long as the Lord enables and calls you to do so. Your generous sacrifice enables our various staff members to continue to minister both locally and globally full-time. Your partnership enables us to reach thousands of people each year with not only the message of salvation but also your support helps us facilitate the transformative power of God’s Kingdom within their lives as believing individuals and communities learn who they are in Christ and how they can break free from their previous lives of bondage.

Because Infusion Ministries is a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax deductible. Will you help us be a vessel through which Jesus can set captives free? Will you partner with us through prayer and financial support?

Dave Johnston – Mid-West Regional Director – South Dakota

IMG_6621.jpg

Dave prayed for years that God would allow him to do ministry near the mountains. He meant the Rocky Mountains… He learned to pray specifically. But what Dave didn’t know is that he would love the mountains of Tennessee and the South to the extent that Dave often says he was a southern boy born in the North. Dave’s favorite place is sitting in the mountains by a stream talking and thanking the Lord for sending him to the mountains to do ministry in just the right place! Dave is Vice President of Infusion, leading our EPIC Men’s ministry. His greatest passion is to help lead men toward freedom in Christ enabling them to live out God’s plan for their life. Dave leads men’s groups, counsels men and does one-on-one discipleship. He is excited to live his dream as the Lord has allowed Dave to combine his love for the mountains and his love for ministry into EPIC Christian Adventures. ECA is an adventure ministry, guiding men into the mountains for great adventure and opportunities to encounter Jesus. Dave believes there is no place like communing with Jesus up on the mountain.

The Lord called Meghan to join Infusion Ministries during her internship there in 2015. With every season is stretching, growth, and healing. As she has gained more ground on her own identity and freedom in Christ, so has the desire and passion to disciple and counsel people in their journeys to freedom in Christ.

Christina Jodoin – International Missions Director

Christina Photo.jpg

Christina has known Jesus personally since the age of 4. From a young age, God has instilled in Christina a desire to understand people on a deep level and to encourage them. Growing up, Christina moved several times which allowed her to experience and observe different kinds of people. God brought her to East Tennessee in 2005. Christina first encountered Infusion Ministries and the messages of identity and freedom at one of their leadership trainings and through reading the books Stomping Out the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker – Youth Edition. She had not realized how much had been holding her back from knowing true intimacy with God, which is what she had longed for her whole life. This began a long journey of truth-seeking, healing, understanding Jesus and experiencing true freedom and peace. She wanted to share these truths with others who were hurting. Christina interned with Infusion in 2015 and went on a pilgrimage to Israel with Dave Park that May (and believes that EVERYONE should take this trip!) She knew that God was calling her into full-time ministry. Christina is passionate to see God set individuals free to be who they are in Christ. Recently, God has expanded her passion for other people, other cultures and how God relates to and loves people all over the world. Doors continue to open for Christina to share the truth with others as she joins God in what he wants to do locally and globally! She loves being a part of Infusion Staff as the International Missions Director, and seeing God bridge cross-cultural connections with staff all over the world! God is so Good!

Jan Long – Director of Men’s Ministry

Jan Long Photo.JPGJan Long grew up in the mountains of Northeast PA, one of six siblings, and raised in a Christian home. He received Christ at age 17 while at Bob Jones University where he earned a BS in Business Administration in 1976. Jan went on to have a stellar 35-year career in business development, sales and marketing, and project management in the nuclear industry. In his secular vocation and personal pursuits, he has addressed US audiences, large and small, from platforms including technical presentations, motivational speeches, teaching and instruction and sharing his story and faith. He has also served on several professional and Christian boards/committees and led various small groups. Jan has four grown children living in Seattle, Denver, Cleveland, and Philadelphia and one, two-year-old granddaughter. Jan loves Creation’s beauty where he enjoys mountain biking, hiking, and all water sports. Shortly after moving to East TN in 2010, God began a new work in Jan’s heart. He became painfully aware of a spiritual bondage and wonderfully aware of the Holy Spirit’s power and desire to set him free. He began praying earnestly, seeking godly counsel and letting God out of the box he had always kept him in, which included keeping the Holy Spirit at a doctrinal distance. One significant step along this new journey was becoming acquainted with Infusion Ministries through a men’s bible study at Two Rivers Church in Knoxville where he met Dave Johnston. Jan went through Infusion’s 2016-2017 internship which he, somewhat reluctantly, felt called to undertake. At the exact same time the internship ended, so did Jan’s job. With this knowledge of God’s timing, Jan was asked to join the Infusion staff. In that moment of decision, God whispered to him, “This is what I’ve been preparing you for since setting you free in 2012.” Jan will be serving as Director of Men’s Ministries where he will be teaching, speaking and coordinating EPIC Summits as well as supporting Dave Johnston with EPIC Christian Adventures (ECA) planning and scheduling.

At the completion of her internship, she was invited to participate as the Director of Latino Ministries (USA).

Sally Zelenock – Director of Prison Ministry

Sally Photo.jpg

Sally grew up in Michigan and lived most of her adult life there. In February 2015, Sally’s life was forever changed after she met Grace Park at a women’s retreat. This started the journey of identity and freedom in Sally’s life which led to participating in the Infusion Ministries internship program that began that fall. In the Spring of 2016, Sally became full-time staff as Director of Children’s Ministries and Director of Development and Marketing that summer. The burning in her heart is to infuse into children their Abba Father’s great, unwavering, and unconditional love for them and helping them to find identity and freedom in Christ at the beginning of their journey of life. Sally loves making new connections brought by development and marketing, more so she loves the connection God is making with people and Infusion Ministries.

Tommy Dodd – Prayer Coordinator

Tommy_Dodd PICTommy is the Infusion Ministries Prayer Coordinator. He lived in different parts of the country growing up, but his family landed and set down roots in Northeast Mississippi. Even though he accepted Christ at a young age, it was not until in his 40’s that he started to understand how God works through the Holy Spirit and began to pursue a deeper relationship with the Lord. After Tommy retired from a career of working for the railroad, he moved to East Tennessee where God laid out a new path of personal growth of identity and freedom in Christ. God placed people to disciple him and show him how to grow in his new identity and freedom. One of those key people was Dave Johnston. After learning about ECA and the EPIC Men’s ministry involving men hiking, camping, and many more outdoor activities, he thought “this is for me”. He could hardly wait to get involved- not knowing where this would lead. After attending an ECA camp, he joined the 2016-2017 Infusion Internship and, after a lot of prayer and conversation, God said, “this is where I want you”. Tommy lives in Lenoir City, Tennessee with his wife Debbie. They have one son, daughter in law, and two grandchildren who live in Knoxville, Tennessee. He enjoys serving others, wood-working, and just about anything involved with being outdoors.

Kristie Kroschel – Incoming Staff

Kristie_Kroschel website picKristie came to know the Lord after a youth retreat when she was 13 years old.

Since then she has been on the journey of all believers – growing in understanding of the full, free life Christ gives us.

She grew up in a military family and enjoyed all of their U.S. and international travels, actually graduating from Frankfurt American High School in Frankfurt, Germany. She received her Bachelor of Science and teaching certificate from the University of Washington, where she met and chocolate chip cookied her way into Kurt’s heart.

Nabil Kort – Infusion Representative in Israel

Nabil Website pic.jpg

Nabil was raised in a Catholic background in the Old City of Jerusalem. As a teenager, he got involved with drugs and was far from God. However, he was saved and delivered in the year 2000! His wife Louiza comes from a Greek Orthodox background, and was saved about 19 years ago. They believe that the Lord has called them into pastoral ministry and using the gifts of the Spirit to encourage the body of Christ, especially the prophetic. They also believe in worship as a ministry tool which the Lord uses very powerfully to save, deliver, and heal people. At the moment, Nabil is pastoring a church in Jerusalem called Kingdom Church. Their church has begun relief work in areas such as the Jerusalem and the West Bank bringing to families in need. The Lord brought Dr. Dave Park and Nabil together on one of Dave Park’s tours to Israel in 2014 and every year since. Through these pilgrimages, the Lord has used Nabil and Dave in a mighty way for His glory, through words of wisdom to the people and setting people free by the power of the Holy Spirit. Nabil and Louiza believe in sharing the message of identity and freedom, to see many people (Muslims, Jews, and nominal Christians) coming to the Lord and being discipled, and to see the true work of the Holy Spirit in reconciling Arabs and Jews together and bring them together through Infusion Ministries.

Nico Spies – Infusion Representative in Argentina

Nico Photo.JPG

When Nico was 12 years old he decided to personally believe in Christ, at a conference at his church. Since then Nico has desired to know more about God, follow Him and serve Him. When Nico was 20 years old, he met the living Christ in a new and vivid way that transformed his life. He experienced a real encounter with the Holy Spirit that showed him that the life of Christ was actually living in him. This was almost the same time that he first encountered the books Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker. After that, Nico began teaching the messages of identity and freedom in Christ. In 2012, Nico met César Forero and Dave Park at a missionary camp in Chile. Nico and his wife Deby prayed and asked the Lord how they could be a part of the Infusion Ministries team because they had been teaching identity and freedom for the past 15 years. Nico has reached hundreds, maybe thousands of youth around Argentina through the teachings of identity and freedom. It has been a great blessing for Nico to be a part of the Infusion team and working as a representative in Argentina.
