Tarrell Windom Staff Member

Tarrell Windom

Board Member

Tarrell Windom was born and raised in Mississippi. He was raised in the Baptist faith. In his late teens, he strayed from his upbringing. However, in 1999, he began to turn his life around. During this time, he faced numerous challenges, but he diligently continued to seek God. He recommitted his life to Christ in 2006, when he had an amazing experience with Trucker’s Ministries and Pastor Olen Thompson.

His profession allows him the opportunity to travel from state to state. He takes this time to witness to people about the goodness of Jesus Christ and how putting God in the driver’s seat can impact your life with positive results. Tarrell began to experience God’s deeper calling on his life and so he became a board member at Trucker’s Ministries and became their first road Evangelist. He continues to travel and share the goodness of Jesus Christ and see people’s lives touched by God. God continues to bless him, so he takes every chance he gets to bless others.

Paul Cunningham

Board Member, Lead Road Chaplain

Howdy, my name is Paul Cunningham. I was born in Fairfield, California and raised in Nickelsville, Virginia. I have been married for 32+ years to Vickie Cunningham, we have 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, and I have one sister.

I have been saved since July 1978 at Vacation Bible School in Arizona. I have been a cowboy, truck driver and a Law enforcement officer. 

I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Lord healed me from high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and led me to the right doctor so I could have weight loss surgery. I lost over 240lb. He also helped me overcome an addiction to prescription pain meds. The devil has tried to take me out four times, with God showing His glory. Showing me that He had a purpose for my life.

I am so thankful for my Lord Jesus Christ, and for all He has blessed me with, including my family and my brothers and sisters in the Lord. 

 

Thank you and God Bless

Vickie Cunningham Staff Member

Vickie Cunningham

Staff Chaplain

Hi, my name is Vickie Cunningham. I have been married to Chaplin Paul Cunningham for 32 years. We have 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. 

I said the little salvation prayer and was baptized when I was 13. I went the way of the world, going in and out of church, until I became a Mom for the second time. Then I realized that I was responsible for 2 more souls. But I still wasn't committed. When my husband and I started going to church together, then we totally committed our lives to following Jesus and becoming disciples of God's word. I'm not saying life has been easy, but knowing our Savior is there with us, has made life much easier to bear.

Melvin Bradley Staff Member

Melvin Bradley

IT Manager

My name is Melvin Bradley I am the IT guy for the ministry, and I have been dealing with technology for most of my life (meaning since I was 4 and a half years old.) I was born in 87’ in Michigan to a family that was beyond broken and was brought to Virginia at the age of 1 to be raised by my grandparents. I was raised in Baptist family and had a loving home once I was with my grandparents here in VA. In 2014 my grandmother passed away from her health issues and this turned me away from God at the time because why would God allow a woman to suffer who never did anything against Him. So, for many years I was lost wandering the world. During this time, I was homeless and had many other hardships. This was until I came to Freymiller as a driver and met Pastor. This was a man that I saw was full of knowledge and spoke directly to you. He made things a lot easier for me to understand and so after a couple of years I have found my way back into the light of the Lord and am better for it. This is a feat that many a people thought would be next to impossible to do as I had been in a bad place for many years. He has helped me out tremendously and has done good by me for the years that I have known Pastor Olen for now and I am proud to be able to help him and the Ministry out in the ways I am able to do so now.
