Rick Wells is married to his provision from God, Susie Wells, and they have a blended family of seven children. Susie and Rick attend Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, NC. Rick gave his life to Christ in September of 1978, and he is originally from Pensacola, Florida. Marriage has come full circle for Rick after a failed first marriage, complete with all of its sorrows. After moving to Charlotte from Pennsylvania, God redirected his passion from ministering to divorced Christians to 2 Becoming 1 Global, which focuses on the biblical principles of marriage in Genesis 1 and 2. Both of his two trips into Cuba with 2 Becoming 1 Global were life changing for him, and he recommends that every believer should go on a short term mission trip to a third world country.
Professionally, Rick has worked in the surgical equipment industry since 1986. He worked for Johnson & Johnson for ten years, Boston Scientific for five years and Karl Storz Endoscopy for twelve years. He has held positions at various levels within those organizations, such as Account Executive, Sales Trainer, Executive Sales Trainer, Region Manager and Area Manager.
Roland Martinez was born and raised in MIAMI! His family came from Cuba in 1962. After his parents divorced at the age of two, his grandparents poured into his life, and instilled a love for God and the church.
After graduating from Clearwater Christian College he experienced the first of what he describes as the seven highlights of his life. In 1994 he married the love of his life Tammy Lynn. The second, third, fourth, and fifth highlights were the births of each of their four daughters – Marissa Lynn(17), Amanda Lauren(15), Abigail Renee(13), and Brianna Alicia(11). Four years later came the birth of their first son, Rolando Cayetano, “Cai”(7). Their most recent addition is Lucas Ricardo born September 2011!
The Lord has given Roland the opportunity to serve in various aspects of ministry. He has been involved with teaching, coaching, pastoring and administrative positions at the high school level and camp programs. Roland is thrilled to be on staff with 2B1G serving the Latin American community locally and overseeing the work being done in Cuba. It is his passion for the world to be transformed through oneness. Impact a marriage, you impact the church, impact the church you impact the community, impact the community you impact the state, impact the state you impact the country, impact the country you impact the world.
John & Cindy Zentmeyer Nearly 20 years ago, Cindy and I were introduced to the Two Becoming One Bible study by our amazing friends, Charles and Buffy Wimmer. A casual visit from Charles turned into revelations of truth for our marriage. Charles mentioned the Two Becoming One Bible study and Cindy got excited, but I was really hesitant about making the commitment of time. We had been through other marriage studies before and I just didn’t think another one was necessary. Besides, I thought our marriage was okay, but that became our trigger to follow through. We agreed we didn’t just want an okay marriage, we wanted a GREAT marriage. Without question, those weeks were a time of incredible spiritual growth and enlightenment. God’s Word and work became alive in our marriage, or shall we say our marriage became alive in His Word. The precious seeds of faith thrown on the path by Don and Sally and Charles and Buffy have reaped so much and impacted our family greatly. So convinced were we of the godly principles taught, we went on to lead a study in our city. We invited my brother and his wife, Don and Becky Zentmeyer, to take the class and soon they led the study in their hometown of Tampa, Florida. Their faithfulness and commitment has blessed hundreds of couples that have learned to apply God’s Principles for their marriages.
Three years ago, God called us to be more involved with His plan and what He is doing in marriage. He called us to a new local church where our pastor asked if we would help in starting 2 Becoming One as the foundation marriage curriculum. Since that time we have seen God reveal His Truths to so many marriages and in truly miraculous ways. 2 Becoming One is an enrichment study, but Gods’ principles are powerful for every couple no matter what their situation. 2 Becoming One is based on the truth that God designed marriage, and He can make it work. God wants to be in the center of your marriage. He wants to get involved in your mess. We once heard a speaker say that “God wants to turn your mess into a message and your test into a testimony.” God loves relationships and He takes the hurt and pain of our story, heals us through our faithfulness and then turns it into hope for another. God is supernaturally building an “abundance of counselors” to guide us into a marriage that will finish stronger than it began. He wants us to cross the finish line together, encourage others to come alongside, and press on to victory.
In just over two years we have seen God develop over 75 leader/facilitator couples who have done just that. Some have already led classes and others plan to do so in the future. THAT is what God is doing right now ! THAT is what He has been calling us to!! God’s truth about marriage is spreading from city to city, family to family and friend to friend. Cindy and I are so blessed and humbled that God would allow us to be a part of His great plan for restoring marriages to their full abundance!!! As we continue to learn and apply Gods principles to our marriage our 4 adult children are learning to expect Gods best for their marriage(our daughter and her husband) and their future marriages (our 3 sons). We believe God is carrying out His word through the 2 Becoming One study and the willingness of so many couples to share what they have learned and to share their stories. Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where there is no guidance, the people fall, but in an abundance of counselors there is victory.”
Phillipians 3:12-14 “Not that I have obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what lies behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
