Areon & Carol Potter

Areon Potter was born and raised in northern California. After serving four years with the United States Air Force, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Northwest Nazarene College where he met and later married his wife, Carol. Carol was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and also earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology at Northwest Nazarene College. Areon worked as a counselor and teacher at a state correctional facility for delinquent boys in Nevada for nearly 9 years. Areon and Carol have 2 sons, Ryan and Troy, and 4 granddaughters.

In 1980 the family moved to Denver, Colorado, where Areon worked as a Christian counselor for 5 years with Grace Fellowship International. It was while there, in 1982, that he first became aware of how Christians could be influenced by the kingdom of darkness. In July of 1985, Areon and Carol sensed God leading them to found Adonai Resources. In order to teach Areon what he needed to know, God began bringing an increased number of believers across his path who were experiencing the work of the enemy in their lives. As he learned to deal effectively with harassing demonic forces, Areon gathered valuable insight into the enemy’s schemes and tactics.

In the fall of 1992, Areon sensed a need to organize the information God had taught him about spiritual warfare. The author’s efforts have brought forth his first book — From Darkness to Light.

In 2002, Areon and Carol realized that God was directing them to move Adonai Resources to the Pacific Northwest. They settled in Salem, Oregon, and are continuing the ministry that they had begun in Denver. It was in Salem that Areon wrote his second book — Psalm 91 The Dweller.

Troy & Amy Potter

In November of 2007, at the LORD’s direction, Amy and I started working with Adonai Resources. God showed us that He was calling us to step out onto a seemingly very thin and unstable limb; He asked us to start raising support. For those who know us well, you know that this was a very difficult idea to come to terms with. But we made the decision to trust that He will open and close doors as we seek His will and direction for our lives. Our responsibility is to diligently seek, listen, and obey.

Jeremiah 29:11-13   “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”

One of the many things we have learned through this process is that God does not consult nor consider the comfort levels of those He calls to follow Him. He simply tells us to follow Him and we choose to be obedient or choose to forge our own paths without Him.
