Legacy Makers


Twenty years ago, Dale and Sharon Walker started Heart for the World.  They had a burden to help those in need, plant churches, and bring hope to the hopeless in the nations.  Many different programs and organizations have been started because of the work they have done.  People around the world have been impacted by their love, sacrifice, and generosity.  Our co-founders, Joey and Danielle, first met on a mission trip to Mexico because of Dale and Sharon’s dream to start Extreme Missions to serve those in need.  Heart for the World has generously launched Meeting TENTS and is why we exist as an organization today.  Our hearts are beyond grateful for the work Dale and Sharon started and have been faithfully committed to through the years.  We hope to continue as a piece of their legacy to reach the nations through Meeting TENTS.
