In 2005, Randy Gibson felt a call from God to begin a legal aid ministry and mentioned this to his daughter, Jennifer after a run they had just completed. She told him he should do it. He decided to begin slowly and opened a legal aid ministry without fanfare at Crestwood Baptist Church. In 2009, a lengthy illness caused the legal aid ministry to close. Then, in 2011, Randy again felt God calling him to open a legal aid clinic. He did not act on this until he attended the funeral service for close friend Kristin Sauder. At the service, Bob Russell spoke of the suffering and early death of a devoted follower of God and that we did not know how Kristin’s life might impact those who she touched in her life, including those in attendance. At that moment, Randy felt a strong, immediate call from God to begin again a Christian legal aid ministry. So Triple Twelve was formed on May 1, 2014. The original name of the ministry honored Kristin Sauder as her illness had been discovered on 12-12-12. We have reached an important point in the life of this young ministry. We have changed the name of this ministry, not to abandon who we are, how we were born or the honor we acknowledge belongs to Kristin Sauder for her life and her dedication to the Lord, but rather as an acknowledgement that this is God’s ministry and as we move forward into the future and into new locations, the name of the ministry will reflect what we do and who we are – stewards helping those who are in need and in search of justice.
