Boomer grew up in First Baptist Church, Inola. After graduating high school in Purcell, OK, Boomer attended The University of Oklahoma where he studied Letters - a degree combining History, Literature and Philosophy. In May of 2010, he felt called to serve on the mission field and for three months he lived in Seville, Spain. Initially, Boomer believed he wasn't the right fit for full time ministry. However, his time in Spain helped him clarify his call to ministry and serve the local church. He has been in vocational ministry for 5 years and serving in Norman and Hollis, Oklahoma and currently in Elk City. Boomer and Mackenzie met at Super Summer as students and have seen God move in their lives in the days since then. Mackenzie is an elementary teacher who loves music and teaching kids.
