Along with pastoring they have traveled the nation preaching in churches, tents, campmeetings, auditoriums, and revivals. Thousands have been blessed through their ministry.
In 2000, while living in Columbus, the Roesslers felt God calling them to Findlay. On the first Sunday of April 2005 what they felt in their hearts became a reality. They became the Senior Pastors of Blanchard Avenue Pentecostal Church of God in Findlay, Ohio.
Today, the church has grown from a small group of people to a thriving cross-cultural church that is impacting Findlay and northwest Ohio. Pastor Roessler has been a guest on TBN's Praise The Lord, a frequent host on TV44's Ask The Pastor, and is requested frequently to be a guest on several live radio shows from Toledo to Lima, Ohio.
