Rusty Eckstrom was raised in a home where strong values of hard work, discipline and knowing right from wrong were taught, but church attendance was only occasional. He responded to the gospel 16 years ago after hearing it presented multiple times through Christian radio, a Promise Keepers event ,and his first Weekend to Remember®. He has been growing in Christ ever since.
Robin Eckstrom grew up in a military family with parents who belonged to different denominations. Their family did not attend church but Robin heard and responded to a gospel presentation on the 700 Club as a young wife. Her understanding of the gospel became more clear when she and Rusty started attending a local Bible-believing church together.
They have four grown children and live in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.
