Ingo Sorke was born in Marburg, Germany, and grew up in Bavaria and Stuttgart. He was confirmed in the Lutheran church at age 14. Coming to the United States in 1985 as an exchange student, Ingo first encountered Seventh-day Adventists in Keene, Texas. Although he once wrote a friend back in Germany that “I don’t think I will ever become a Seventh-day Adventist”, after a traumatic death in his host family, the attraction of a loving community, and much Bible study, Ingo was baptized just before he returned to Germany in 1986. He has studied theology in Germany and the U.S. and has pastored several churches in Texas. With a Ph.D. in New Testament (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary – Book of Revelation), he currently teaches Bible courses at Southwestern Adventist University with the philosophy that “To Educate is to Redeem”. He has been married for 23 years and enjoys spending time with his wife and two teenage sons, especially ministering together in a new church plant. His favorite quote: “Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready” (EW 64).

Raised in a Seventh-day Adventist Christian home, Eric Wilson began training in the martial arts at the age of fourteen, just after his parents’ separation and divorce. Searching for purpose and meaning in his life, and struggling to understand the storm which had destroyed his family and his home, Eric began the journey on a path which promised confidence, assurance, and control. Over the next 24 years of training, Eric received black belt and instructor certification in seven styles of the combative arts; and was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Through the years involved in these Eastern mystical arts, he had become blind to the forces which had set themselves to destroy both he and his family. In 2003 his marriage crumbled and fell apart. But praise be to our Mighty God! After nearly five years of separation and divorce, the LORD in His great love and mercy began to open Eric’s blinded eyes, and to turn him from darkness to Light. Through the unfailing promises of His Word, the LORD reunited Eric and his wife in their love for one another and His covenant of marriage, restoring both their family and their home. In 2008, as Eric was reading aloud the promises of God’s Word, he heard our Savior's voice, saying, “Go and tell what great things the LORD hath done for you!” It was that day that Isaiah Ministries was born. And since that moment in time, it has been his greatest desire to share the glad tidings of the salvation, freedom, deliverance, healing and restoration, which has been wrought in Christ.
