Raised in a loving Christian family, Susan's parents, Pastors Dan and Claudia Denissen, founded Abundant Life Church in 1980. Susan graduated from Rhema Bible Training College in 1986. Susan assists her husband, Pastor Kevin, in the ministry of pastoral care, teaching the Word, women's ministry, children's ministry, and church fellowship. She desires to minister to the broken-hearted, as she, herself, has battled with depression. Knowing that 3 John 2 says, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth," her prayer is to have all people be whole in their soul (mind, will, and emotions). Susan and Kevin have two children, Jenessa, born in 1991, and Grant, born in 1995.
