We're about KINGDOM.  We're about FAMILY.

We're about becoming the MOTHERS and FATHERS to an orphan world. 

We're about being His KIDS, knowing our identity

and giving HIS LOVE to others.


Richard & Linda Hefner


Richard and Linda have been married for 34 years and have three wonderful children.  Richard is a family physician in Crestwood, KY and Linda works from home.  After leaving the Navy in 1991, they moved back home to Southern California where they attended the Anaheim Vineyard, pastored by John Wimber.  During that time, their hunger increased to experience more of God’s presence and see His power touch and change people’s lives. Together they worked in local and overseas outreaches.


In 1999, God led them to move to Louisville, Kentucky. They presently attend New Life Church in Louisville where they met and became friends with Neil and Magdalena Cantrell, the visionaries behind LouSSM. Together the four of them started the Louisville School of Supernatural Ministry in 2015. In 2018, Neil and Magdalena moved to Florida and Richard and Linda took the helm to lead the school along with three additional leaders, Bari Bosse and Art and Judy Erickson.


Richard has been involved in worship, leading a home group and overseas ministry. Linda led a women's ministry for several years and has also traveled overseas. Together they have a hunger to see people encounter the love of God in practical and supernatural ways and to, in turn, extend that same love to a hurting world. They love seeing God equip the next generation and look forward to all the amazing things God is going to do through the students.

Bari Bosse


Bari Bosse lives with a deep passion for God and for people, and joined LouSSM's leadership team in 2018 with an abundance of ministry experience.  Bari has been involved in intercessory prayer, healing and deliverance ministry and presently heads up the prayer room at her church.  She has also traveled overseas for ministry to several countries including Albania, England and Africa. 

She has been married to her husband, George, for over 20 years and has two wonderful children. Her background is a registered nurse, and she has worked with the Red Cross in Louisville for several years.


Bari has a passion to see people walk in the complete freedom that God provides and recognize their full identity as sons and daughters of a GOOD Father.  She loves helping to equip others in their God-given gifts and authority and loves to bring His Kingdom everywhere she goes.

Art & Judy Erickson



Art and Judy Erickson came to LouSSM with many years of ministry experience.  Judy has ministered around the world for many years teaching, preaching and bringing the power of God to the United States, England, Albania, Australia and Africa. She loves helping others operate in their God-given gifts and identity. As a couple, they continue to travel to Uganda every year teaching and equipping the people in spiritual and practical ways, such as their instrumental involvement in building an orphanage. They have also actively worked with a pastor there, Bishop Grivas Mussisi, to build a radio station that reaches three million people in Uganda. They are presently assisting him in building a television station that will reach 60 million people in five African countries.


In recent years Art has actively ministered alongside Judy in Kenya and Uganda.  As a businessman, Art has a vision to equip the people of Uganda not only with the gospel but with technical skills that will help create businesses, personal and regional economic stability and family strength.  Art also administrates Judy's personal ministry, Judy Erickson Ministries.


Art and Judy have been married for over 50 years and have three children.  They have a deep desire to see the church operate more fully in signs and wonders and live out the reality of God's Kingdom in their everyday lives. 

Dino and Joy2_edited_edited.jpg

Dino & Joy Mako


Both Dino and Joy have attended the school for three years.  Joy was born and raised in the Philippines and Dino in the U.S.  They met and fell in love long distance through the connection of their pastors.  (That's a great God story!) They have been married over 10 years and have a deep love for the Lord and for people.

They love bringing God's Kingdom everywhere they go as they pray and minister to people in their everyday lives.  Dino has a strong computer background which makes him a valuable asset in our administrative area. And Joy - well those who know her, know that she loves to capture moments and memories and share them on social media.  We're excited for her to document our school family's story.  

Lastly for anyone that knows them, Dino is the big tender "teddy bear" with a powerful hidden treasure of God's gifts.  Joy loves to operate in the supernatural and excites us with what God shows her.  She also oozes God's love on those who come close to her. We are so thankful to have them on board.
