Doug and Faith Clark were both raised in Christian homes and accepted the Lord early in life. They both believed that God wanted them to serve Him full-time. They met at Appalachian Bible College from which they graduated and were married in 1978. From 1978 to 1985, they served the Lord with the American Mission for Opening Churches in New York. Anna and Sara joined their family in New York.
In 1985, they moved to Kansas to serve with Bible Impact Ministries where Esther was born. In 1994, the Lord provided a camp facility for Bible Impact and the Clarks relocated to Missouri and Whispering Winds Bible Camp was developed.
