As the oldest of five siblings, Denver learned the importance of caring for those in need from his parents Dallas and Rhoda. Denver’s formative elementary school years were spent living in Bolivia, which has impacted how he sees his place in this world. In 2004 he received his degree in Communications from Eastern Mennonite University and got his start as a freelance video producer, which included work for numerous international non-profit organizations. Today Denver is the Director of Information Services for Venture Products. He and his wife Tara have been involved in Children Ministry locally in Orrville, Ohio for the past eight years and are adoptive and foster parents.
As the youngest of seven boys, Dallas has had no shortage of role models. Growing up on a small family farm, his parents taught them the importance of hard work and serving others. At the age of 22, Dallas and his wife Rhoda moved to Bolivia to work in appropriate technology. After returning to the United States, Dallas found his niche in management at the Steiner Corporation. God then called his family to return to Bolivia. This time to administer an orphanage, which is still in operation today, nearly 27 years later. In 1993, Dallas traveled back home to manage Steiner Ag Products, which became Venture Products in 1996. Dallas focuses much of his time on international sales and provides leadership as CEO and Chair of the Board for Venture Products Inc.
