Directors Dan & Penny Funkhouser

Over 30 years ago, Penny and I began our walk with Jesus. Through the years we have been amazed by some of the opportunities we have had to advance the cause of Jesus in our world. Dan and Penny were born again in 1973 and started a church called Agape Fellowship in 1976. The church began in Woodland Park, Colorado and after 2 years moved to Green Mountain Falls, where the church still exists under the name of Rocky Mountain Christian Center. In 1978, Dan graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center. He also earned a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree in Bible Theology from International Bible Institute and Seminary. He holds a conferred Doctor of Divinity Degree from the same seminary. Penny graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in 1981. The School of Counseling was offered at Andrew Wommack’s Bible College and she completed that study in the 90’s. The church grew from 9 to over 800, with a Christian school., Bible College, Prolife Pregnancy Center. In the 1980’s, Dan ministered in many crusades and Bible colleges in Central and South America, as well as other countries. He helped pioneer many new churches and was also voted twice to head the Colorado Springs Ministerial Association. For many years, KWYD aired “The Kingdom Report” where Pastor Dan taught financial freedom based on scriptural principles. In the 1990’s his focus returned to his family and the pioneering of another church in Colorado Springs. He turned his ministry in Green Mountain Falls over to his staff and began again. He continued to teach in Bible colleges as well as serving his denomination for five years as the District Superintendent.

In 2000, the Lord spoke to Dan again and told him it was time for him to find a successor for the Church. Dan found a young man and mentored him, then turning the church over to him in June of 2002 to began this new adventure.

Today, Dan is the Director of Heartbeat International Ministries. Dan with three other men held National Pastor and Leadership Conferences in Central America and Cuba from 2002 through 2006. God opened supernatural doors for him and he ministered from one end of Cuba to the other and had the opportunity to share of God’s goodness to thousands of believers. The ministry has found tremendous favor in countries both in Latin American as well as South America. Dan and Penny have been a tremendous blessing to the body of Christ. Penny operates supernaturally in spiritual gifts and has seen many healings and miracles in her ministry. They are a team sold out to Jesus!

Dan & Penny have two grown daughters, Tracy Starratt and Christy Decker. Tracy has a daughter, Katrial. She is Married and has two children. Craig and Christy have three children;  Craig and Christy helped Dan and Penny in 2004 & 2005 lead worship periodically at Rocky Mountain Church in Green Mountain Falls. Christy and Craig also led music once a month for a year, at their home church they attended in 2005 & 2006. God has blessed us with a wonderful family and 4 beautiful grandchildren and 2 Great Grand Children.

Starting in August of 2007, Dan began teaching at Charis Bible College. For those who do not know, this is Andrew Wommack’s Bible College here in Colorado Springs. We have known Andrew since 1980. It has been so wonderful to reconnect with Andrew and such a delight to teach these hungry people in the college.

God seems to be changing our direction. But due to Dan slowing down after the stroke scare, He has been able to complete the book that He has been working on for probably the past three years. So on April of 2008, it was available for our partners and now you can buy it by going to the link above. Praise God! That was a huge project but so happy that Dan was able to complete his work on the book.

We started Heartbeat Church in Nov 9, 08 and we moved into our latest location which is 3958 N. Academy. The cross roads are Austin Bluffs and Academy. We are in the Academy Station Mall. This is our third location since beginning but we will be leasing this place for several years. Christy is our Worship Leader and Craig also plays and helps when He can be there.
