Tom and Mary Ammons live in Spring Hill, Florida, and are members of Garden Grove Baptist Church, Brooksville, Florida. Mary and Tom each attended a Bill Gothard seminar in the early 80's. This was their first exposure to gospel chalk talks. This sparked an interest in Tom that would eventually lead him to contact Reverend Ding Teuling.
Ding was one of the pioneers in chalk art blacklight, and had over 70 years experience in chalk talk ministry. He taught over 3000 students, equipping them to spread the gospel through chalk talks as well.
Tom has attended a number of Ding's teaching seminars over the years, and has been a veteran visitor of the seminars in North Carolina for many years.
The focus of the Drawing for Christ Chalk Ministry is to share God's love and His message of salvation through His word, and through pictures and music.
Tom retired from UPS after 34 years. Mary retired from the chiropractic field after 27 years with various doctors during that period. They now hope to spend some of their time traveling , and also devoting more time to the chalk talk ministry.
God has blessed them by opening many doors, and hope that He will continue to open up and even expand new opportunities to share the gospel message through this ministry.
