She sat under the ministry of her grandparents Eddie K and Ruth Alice Revis, until her late teens. She now serves as the Co-Pastor of City of God Church, Springfield, Ohio.
Serving diligently with her husband William R. Stout “Bill” was destined for ministry from birth and has constantly been under the influence of Godly men and women.
