The Atens have been answering a call to Experience God as a vocation, serving in full-time itinerant ministry since November of 1990. They will be celebrating 30 years of ATEN MINISTRIES this coming November! Many know them as worship leaders, evangelists or Three2One Marriage Conference hosts. They traveled 20 years as a family with their son and daughter ministering in worship through revivals and concerts. Today they spend an average of 25 weeks per year ministering as a couple in the U.S and internationally in churches based in Canada, Mexico, Bolivia, Wales, Romania, Russia, Venezuela, South Africa, Philippines, Peru, Ukraine, Portugal, Spain and Pakistan.
In the past 5 years, the Atens have continued to transition with the local church from what was around a 90% worship/revival/conference ministry to now include a powerful marriage and family focus, including complete women’s events. They have a heart for leaders world-wide, so they pursue and sponsor ministry to pastors and wives, locally and internationally. They presently have relationships with churches specifically working with pastors and wives in Ukraine, Portugal, Pakistan, Philippines and Venezuela. Their ministry supports pastors and families financially in these countries on a monthly basis.
God has developed in the Atens a hunger for authentic worship in the Body of Christ and a passion for Godly marriages and family through their marriage ministry, Three2One. Sherman served as Music Director for the Conference of Texas Baptist Evangelists from 1998-2000 and then again in 2004. The Atens are currently members and staff evangelists of the Acton Baptist Church, in Granbury, Texas where they make their home and ministry base. ATEN MINISTRIES has operated 100% on love offerings from churches and individuals for the last 30 years. God has sustained them and is still doing so. You may partner with them by visiting their website, a10s.org and contribute to the work of Aten Ministries at the bottom of the homepage. Sherman and Tammy would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to you Waples Baptist Church for your love, prayers and financial support of Aten Ministries and for supporting this Gospel-driven work around the world. Three of our Waples members serve on the Board of Aten Ministries (Glenn Ward and Scott and Lori Dix).
