James and Tiffany Dewhurst
In 1997 serving as small group leaders for their local youth ministry, James and Tiffany “fell in love”, and the rest is history. One year later, at the age of 21, James accepted the call of God to enter full-time ministry as a youth pastor. For the next 15 years they rode an incredible journey together building two amazing youth ministries, recording two albums, leading worship, running youth conferences, guest speaking and raising two amazing children (Malachi and Malena). In early 2011 they began to feel a deeper call to minister to the whole family. After a year and a half of prayer, confirmations and preparation, they decided to close the only chapter they knew and trust God to open the next one. With the two words “Real” and “Family” imprinted on their hearts, they clasped hands, took a deep breath and birthed Real Church in January of 2013.
