Rev. Bart’s Testimony
Barton Case was born in Indiana, the younger of two children in a non-Christian home. His aunt led him to the Lord in 1969, when he was 16 years old, and several weeks later he answered God’s call to preach the gospel. Within the next year he had the joy of seeing his parents, his older sister, and her husband all come to know the Lord and follow Him in believer’s baptism.
Brother Case’s interest in aviation began early in his life as he watched commercial airliners fly over his house to land at what is now the Indianapolis International Airport. He joined the US Air Force upon his graduation from high school, and after being discharged from the USAF in May of 1974, he enrolled in Bible college to prepare for the ministry. During his first year of college he met his future wife Nancy, and they were married the following summer. After graduation from Bible college Brother Case served as assistant pastor for several years in Florida; and then for 10 years in Greenville, South Carolina, he taught in a Christian school, worked in the church youth ministries, and preached in the jail ministry and rescue mission.
During the years spent in Greenville the Lord blessed the Case family with four children: their older son Craig is now married and lives in New York, where he and his wife, both graduates of Pensacola Christian College, are active in their local church. Their older daughter Maria lives in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and attends college there. Their two younger children, Anna and William, both attend Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida.
In March of 1990 the Cases moved to South Range, Michigan, where Brother Case served as pastor of Calvary Baptist Church for over ten years. Pastor Case led CBC into faith promise missions and saw the church become a strong missions-minded church with numerous outreach ministries including a local jail ministry, nursing home and adult foster care ministries, soul winning and evangelism, youth ministry, Blue Denim and Lace Club, annual mission trips, church orchestra, and Bearing Precious Seed scripture publishing ministry.
During a conference in a neighboring state Pastor Case met Brother Bob Warinner, Director of Wings As Eagles Mission Air Service, and CBC began taking mission trips with Wings As Eagles to Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Canada. The Lord used this relationship with WAE to change the course of Brother Case’s ministry.
In September of 2000 Brother Case left CBC to move his family to Wyldewood Baptist Church in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to work fulltime with Wings As Eagles Mission Air Service. Brother Case is gifted in building trades and mechanical skills, and these talents are now used to help both missionaries and local churches through the Wings ministry. Brother Case is also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, as well as a licensed pilot.
Please consider having this couple come to your church. They are currently at 49% of their support and need your prayers as they seek to glorify God through the Wings As Eagles ministry.
