Meet the McCaulleys

In December of 1957, at the age of ten, I realized my lost condition before God and through repentance and faith accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour. I had been raised all my life in an independent fundamental Baptist Church, so I understood the Scriptures and that I must be born again.

The following spring (after the creek thawed), I was baptized. Although, as a senior in high school, my church granted me a license to preach, God’s plan was for me to enter the U.S. Army and fly. I left my home town of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania to follow God’s will for my life.

At the age of twenty, I formed an aviation detachment and deployed to Viet Nam for a year of combat flying. It was during several helicopter missions in Viet Nam that God placed a burden on my heart to use aircraft in support of missionary outreach. Upon returning to the United States, I was stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia, where God brought my wife, Anita, and I together. She was born and raised in Muskegon, Michigan and joined the Army Nurse Corps after receiving her RN from Hackley School of Nursing. She was stationed at the hospital at Fort Eustis as an Army nurse. We were married in July 1969 and 45 days later we both deployed to Viet Nam where she was a nurse in an Army Evacuation Hospital and I flew helicopters for another year.

Anita was born again and baptized in the fall of 1970. She left active duty in 1971 to become a full time mother and raise a family at home. We have two children, Ken, 34, and Karen, 31. We have four grandchildren: three boys, Ian, 10, Alex, 8, Nicholas, 4; and one girl, Brenna, 2. Ian and Alex are both born again.

I spent 22 years on active duty in the US Army being prepared by God for His service down the road. The nature of my assignments and responsibilities throughout my career pointed toward this ministry. After retiring from active duty, I received a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies, a Master's in Theological Studies, and a Doctorate in Theological Studies from Bethany Theological Seminary in Dothan, Alabama. AMI was formed in 1992, and I started working part time to help missionaries. In 2003, our pastor, Brother Sam Davison, recommended that we go full time in AMI. After seeking God’s will and praying with our pastor, we are now on deputation and full time in the ministry with AMI
