Daniel DeGarmo and Nathan Ward


Daniel DeGarmo is a full-time evangelist that works with the church he helped plant in Chillicothe, OH in 2006. Residing in the rural hills of southern Ohio, Daniel and his wife, Serena, are currently raising 7 children and 2 dogs. In 2013 tragedy breached their home as their son, Azaiah Stone, died of SIDS at 9 weeks old.  Just a few weeks later HE LIVES FOR KIDS was born. Turning their sorrow into serving, the DeGarmo kids created this non-profit ministry in order to help other children all over the world who are suffering the loss of their brother or sister by sending them care-packages that explode with the love of God.
