Aaron and Shannon DePue

Aaron and Shannon DePue both began their careers in sales and marketing, but they never expected that the Lord would use those experiences to bring them to the mission field.

Aaron and Shannon graduated from college and were married in 2001 when they both began working in business. After the births of their children, Isabella (2004), Blayne (2005), and Avalynn (2007), they followed God’s direction and their entrepreneurial spirit and established their first small business, Place of Grace Early Learning Center. Developing that business venture was the perfect opportunity for Shannon to combine all of her developed skills and gifts into one ministry.

While Shannon launched the preschool full time, Aaron continued to work in sales and marketing, gaining valuable experience. In 2014, Aaron followed God’s calling to full-time ministry as the director of Development at Covenant Christian School. His administrative role maintained responsibility for everything from marketing and business, daily operations, policies and procedures, organizational communication, and fundraising, to school discipline. The time serving at Covenant was a wonderful season of spiritual growth, learning, and discipleship for Aaron, also bringing together his business background and love for ministry.

Aaron’s career change opened the door to allow the DePues to begin mission work in Budapest, Hungary, during the summers of 2015 and 2016. During those two summers, their family’s lives were dramatically impacted. It became very clear to them that the Lord had called them to a longer commitment to serving in Hungary as the next beautiful step in this journey. They moved to Hungary to serve as career missionaries in 2019, where they serve as the regional business as missions coordinators for Europe and the Middle East. They oversee the start-up, building, management, and successful implementation of entrepreneurial projects across the region.Their passion is to see sustainable businesses developed in the mission field that provide a financial revenue stream for ministry and spiritual impact in each community. They desire to leverage these opportunities to build close relationships and share the love of Christ with people that may never otherwise step into a church building.  

Their primary focus is on the establishment of an English-speaking Christian preschool in Budapest, Hungary. The preschool will have the privilege of sharing the Gospel with 80 children every single day.  It is also projected to generate upwards of $200,000 each year that will be reinvested in discipleship training, English ministries, and community impact in Hungary.
