I was born and raised in Wichita, KS. I went to college at Austin College in Sherman, TX then Seminary at Dallas Theological Seminary where I graduated in 1990. I have served in churches in Minot, ND; Bedford, TX; Mishawaka, IN; and Little Rock, AR before moving to Munds Park in June of 2015.
Sara grew up in Tucson so this is a homecoming of sorts for her. We are thrilled to be so close to her family now and she is piling the miles up on her car visiting family and friends.
We have three kids. Alyssa is the oldest and she is a speech and language pathologist in the Phoenix area. Jason, the middle, is married to Kristen. Jason is a graphic and web designer and Kristen is a videographer. Jason is currently working on his masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at John Brown University. Our youngest, Jared, is a Music Ed teacher at a couple schools in Phoenix.
Jason and Kristen have delivered us our first grandchild, Edris Joy. She was born in September of 2015. Our second grandchild (also from Jason and Kristen) is due in October of 2019.
For me, family has always been a priority. We enjoy each other and we have a lot of fun together. However, my kids will tell you that in the midst of the fun that you better bring it when we play. In fact, a Bowyer family motto is, “When we play we will keep score because somebody has to lose. There might be blood. And there will be tears.” Seriously, though, we have great relationships with all of our kids and look forward to bringing our grand kids up to love the Lord and each other in the same way.
