Tim, the son of preachers Paul and Alice Cormier, was raised in the non-denominational Full Gospel Church, and was called by God and started preaching at the age of 19. At the age of 43, after 23 years in the ministry, a life shattering event caused Tim to abandon the faith. His struggles with depression and insomnia eventually led to an addiction to methamphetamines and within a few months, becoming a drug dealer.
During twelve years in addiction, apart from his parents, one of the only Christians to reach out to Tim was Brother Jachin Dardar, who had grown up with Tim and welcomed him into his home and helped him spiritually and financially. Jachin began preaching at the age of 15 and has faithfully served the Lord for 48 years in the ministry with Cindy, his wife of 44 years.
Ravi, who was raised as a nominal Hindu in Bombay, India, came to the US in 1986, and had a successful career in finance. However, he suffered from depression and had suicidal thoughts, and numbed his despair through drugs. In 2000, he met Jen, an exotic dancer whose grandparents had been missionaries in Pakistan, and through her, met her boyfriend Tim, with both helping supply Ravi with drugs.
But God takes what was meant for bad, and turns it into good. In February 2013, while in jail, Tim was set free from addiction and returned to serving our Lord Jesus Christ. In March 2013, Jen entered into rehab for meth addiction, and was saved, with the couple being married in June 2014. In July 2014, Tim led Ravi to the Lord, with the ministry being formed shortly thereafter.
