Our History & Founders

Call Incorporated was formed in December 2006 by Wendy and Joel Berthelsen, and Kathy and Steve Harr. The founders currently serve as the Board of Directors. Prompted by the Holy Spirit’s guidance, Call Inc. was birthed to extend the scope of teaching beyond their immediate context. It is a faith venture that combines many years of study, concern and focus on how to help people understand that God is alive and active in their lives and highly desirous of a unique relationship that leads to a more complete understanding of His plans.
