Jeff and Susan Becker joined the CCH family as houseparents in June 2019. Married for 28 years, the Beckers have been working with children and teens for more than thirty years. Jeff, a licensed and ordained minister, has served in churches in a variety of capacities, from youth pastor to associate pastor, interim pastor, and more. Susan has been a preschool teacher, children’s pastor, behavioral health professional, as well as working with children in other capacities. Together, they have served in houseparent roles (houseparent, teaching parent, childcare worker) for about ten years altogether, in addition to raising two children of their own.
Jeff and Susan, with their children, Nate and Millie, travelled in itinerant ministry as Jeremiah 29:11 Ministries from 2001 until 2013. Now grown, Nate and His wife Jessica are serving as missionaries in the favelas (slum communities) of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Millie lives in Niceville, Florida, where she works as a dog trainer.
After about a twenty-year hiatus, the Lord brought the Beckers back into the ministry of houseparenting in 2017. They are excited to be here in Dunnellon and look forward to seeing the Lord work in the lives of children and families through the ministry of Covenant Children’s Home.
