Karvin, son of a pastor in Louisiana, was converted at the age of 8. His interest in Native Americans began shortly after. He received a call to ministry while in his teens. He is a graduate of Gulf-Coast Bible College (now Mid-America Christian University) in OKC, OK. Sandy, who was raised by a Christian mother in N.E. Louisiana, was converted at the age of 10 and also attended Gulf-Coast Bible College.
Since 1981, they have served as pastors and as the first Church of God-Anderson North American missionaries to Ecuador. In January 1997, they founded Partners in Missions, which works with the Indigenous Peoples and Mestizo of the Americas.
Sandy and Karvin also serve on the Board of Directors of the Chance Project in Guatemala, birthed in part by PiM. Karvin was also on the Board of Directors of the Prince of Peace Home for Girls in Guatemala.
