Cody and Julia Hughes
Cody and Julia Hughes met in college, both receiving accounting degrees from Howard Payne University. Following graduation, Cody went on to complete his MBA from the University of Texas and is currently attending Tyndale Theological Seminary to acquire a Master of Divinity (MDiv). He has been involved in disciple making for the past seven years, leading Bible conferences, teaching, and mentoring young people. His primary emphasis is on reaching America (one youth at a time) with the truth of God’s Word, with the ultimate goal being to pass the baton on to the next generation. Julia has spent the past few years working in public accounting and is currently in the process of completing an MBA through Tarleton State University. She enjoys painting in her free time. Cody and Julia became full time missionaries with DM2 in 2020 after getting married. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a message that has changed both of their lives, empowering and motivating them to share the message of God’s grace with others. They are excited to be involved in disciple making through 3DTC and look forward to investing in the lives of young adults who desire to both grow in their faith and teach others.

Amber grew up on a farm in Eastern Washington for most of her life, with some of her years spent living in the state of Virginia. While attending college at Eastern Washington University she developed a strong passion for sharing the clarity of the Gospel and the truth that can be found in Scripture. It was during her college years that Amber was first introduced to DM2 after attending a women’s Bible study hosted by fellow staff members Jessica Bowe and Rachel Musser. Through that Bible study Amber learned about the security of salvation based on Christ’s work and not her own, and that the Lord truly does have answers to tough questions. In the six years since, Amber has had the opportunity to both attend and host women’s Bible studies, serve in college ministries, participate in numerous DM2 conferences, and attend and serve at Spokane Bible Church. After graduating from EWU with degrees in elementary education and English as a Second Language (ESL), Amber has spent the past two years working as an elementary public school teacher. Amber is both humbled and excited to be a part of 3DTC and can’t wait to see how God will work in the lives of all who attend.
Rachel spent her youngest years on the mission field in the countries of Belarus and Ukraine. She grew up being in ministry and missions with her family, as her family helped plant a church and Bible college in Ukraine as well as a church in her dad’s hometown upon arriving back in Western Washington. From a young age, Rachel was around the Word of God as a missionary and pastor’s kid and knew she wanted to share with others the hope of the gospel and God’s grace with anyone He might bring her way. She began leading devotions and Bible studies with her friends in middle and high school. When she went to her first DM2 conference as a senior, she began to realize even more of God’s freedom, grace, and love and how the Lord would use her to share what she learned with others if she simply trusted Him . Over the past nine years, Rachel has been more heavily involved in women’s discipleship and both children’s and youth ministry through various studies, summer camps, local and international conferences, trainings, and college ministries. She serves in Sunday School, music, and workshop planning at Spokane Bible Church and is the secretary of a mission organization for former Soviet Union countries (AREWF). After graduating from Eastern Washington University with majors in Elementary Education, Spanish, and English as a Second Language, Rachel has had the opportunity to teach in various elementary grade levels and has spent the past three years teaching K-5 Spanish at a local private school in Spokane, Washington. Rachel is excited to be involved in disciple making with 3DTC and mentoring young women who desire to grow and share truth through evangelism and discipleship in children’s, youth, and women’s ministry.
