Who we are and how we began.
Bud and June Runion began Forever Grateful Ministries in 1991.
Bud would repair used bicycles in his basement and give them away to needy children on Christmas Eve.
The need wasn't just bikes. Folks needed clothes, shoes, and food. God gave the Runions the idea to meet needs and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
They held events where the Gospel was presented and lunch was served. Then they gave away clothes, shoes, food, backpacks, hygiene items, and yes, bikes.
Now Bud's daughter and son-in-law carry on the ministry.
Craig and Stephanie have continued Forever Grateful Ministries. They host outreaches in impoverished areas of Appalachia. They still give away clothes, shoes, backpacks, hygiene items, and yes, bikes. All the while, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the only way to Heaven.
