Mr. Childers was raised in Nallen, West Virginia. It was there that he received Jesus Christ as his Savior when he was 10 years old. Later, in college, he felt the Lord leading him into the teaching field. He met his wife Autumn while in college, and they were married in June, 2002. Upon graduating from Crown College, Mr. Childers began teaching at a Christian school in western Kentucky. After teaching in Kentucky for seven years, the Lord brought the Childers family (which, by that time, included two sons: Gabe and Noah) back home to West Virginia to teach at Victory Baptist Academy. Both Mr. and Mrs. Childers have taught at Victory since 2011. Mr. Childers is currently a graduate student of Pensacola Christian College working on his master's degree in Educational Leadership.
