MINISTRY STAFF

















Rocky Fondren - Founder & Sr.Leader

God sent His Son to die for me and all of humanity. It is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that has saved me and delivered me from 23 years of enslavement to drugs. In 1968, at the age of 17 and a senior in High School I began using drugs with classmates during the hippie movement, we where labeled the “Psychedelic Generation”. I was raised in a Christian home and was loved by both my parents therefore; I have no excuse for the path that I chose.

I experimented with marijuana, LSD, and prescription medications. In 1971 I was drafted into the U.S. Army. It was an honor to have served my country during those difficult times our country was going through. It was during this time I was introduced to heroin. After finishing my tour (with honor) in the army I spent the next 17 years using alcohol, heroin, and cocaine. I tried 7 different secular drug institutions. I was prescribed Valium and anti-depressants for my mental torment and methadone for my Heroin addiction.

In 1991 I finally surrendered to God by entering Canaan Land Ministries, a one year Christian recovery program in Alabama. It was at Canaan Land that I received Jesus as LORD & Savior. For the first time God’s Word became revelation to me by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. He also gave me purpose for life. God spoke to my heart and told me to testify of His love to others enslaved in abusive lifestyles. I graduated from Canaan Land with success.


In 1993 I joined Mercy Ships for three years as an ocean going missionary. I was assigned to work in the engine room. It was a time of refining in my life as the Lord purged out years of bitterness, selfishness, faultfinding, and anger. God used the uncomfortable (the smell of diesel, and seasickness) environment of a ships engine room to develop character and intimacy with Him. I asked God for a Christian wife. I met my wife to be, Debbie the first year with Mercy Ships. God had sent me His best and we were joined in marriage in 1998. There was much more preparation for the both of us.

In 1996 I became a Staff member of Maranatha Church in Mont Belvieu, Texas. I was trained in different ministry assignments while at Maranatha Church. I am convinced if it had not been for strong anointed leadership at Maranatha Church, I would not have been qualified for mentoring men. God has placed me for training by His best and I am thankful. After four years I was released with my pastor’s blessings to pioneer Shiloh Ministries in the year 2000.

My life has been dramatically changed by God’s divine intervention. The LORD has added so many blessings to my life to value and steward. God is love and He is real. Do not miss out on the best gift ever given to mankind, “Jesus Christ." Life is a matter of choices. Choose the abundant life with God or a life of insignificance. God desires to give you joy unspeakable. I praise God for His faithfulness in response to my cry for help.

Debbie Fondren -  Founder & Sr.Leader

Debbie answered a salvation call as a twenty year old, but it was not until later that she came to understand and have revelation of Jesus as her Lord. Looking to fill the void in her heart, she came up short every time. Many poor decisions involving relationships fear of man, people pleasing, selfishness, pride, and performance oriented snares kept her in bondage.

 In 1992 a double tragedy involving the complete destruction of her home by fire and then 10 days later the death of her former husband through suicide left her with a numbness and further void that only God could remedy. After realizing the degree of her helplessness, she cried out to God for help and she was ready to listen, obey and do it God’s Way.

Being led to quit her job as a Registered Nurse with Hospice, she launched out following The Holy Spirit’s lead, and joined Youth with a Mission in 1993. Serving in Nashville and abroad for five years she discovered God was not finished with her, and that HE loved her simply for her. She met Rocky in the Dominican Republic while serving as a Missionary Nurse to the people of Barahona. Continuing to follow God’s leading, Debbie and Rocky were married in 1998.

Trusting God that HE had indeed orchestrated HIS plans for a Ministry called Shiloh, Debbie alongside her husband Rocky stood in faith, and against all odds, called out those things that were not as though they were and believed for God to manifest HIMSELF step by step. Today, God continues to reveal HIMSELF at Shiloh Ministries in Liberty, Texas.

 Debbie celebrates her life of faith and amazing Grace through JESUS her LORD. She loves being an eye witness to miracles everyday of provision, healing, deliverances, restoration, and redemption. Numbers of men entering Shiloh and their families are being set free and discovering for themselves HIS Amazing Love, Grace, and YES, that HE has a plan for their lives and that HE SIMPLY LOVES THEM FOR THEM.
