Duane & Cindy Mullett

Duane Mullett has been serving with Gospel Express prison ministry since 1985. His passion is helping men and women become transformed by the Word of God and walking in victory with Him. This passion includes equipping men and encouraging fathers to be godly leaders in their homes and discipling them with tools to pass their faith to multiple generations. Duane is fulfilling his dream of being able to minister together as a family in obeying the Great Commission.

Cindy (Coblentz) Mullett is grateful for the privilege of being a full-time wife and mother. She enjoys home-schooling and loves the opportunities she has in relating with her daughters. Some of Cindy’s passions are being a wife and mother, and she is loving the blessing of being a mommy to her two little “miracle” girls. Cindy enjoys blogging, creating healthy recipes, reading, and scrap booking.


Austin was our firstborn and our only son. From moments after his birth and throughout his almost seventeen years of life, we have seen how every precious day was a gift from God. Austin’s life was filled with many physical battles, but he conquered each one with an optimistic outlook and a zeal and enjoyment of life that few people experience.

When he was eight months old, Austin received his first heart transplant, and he has faced many other near death experiences that included two kinds of cancer, and a second successful heart transplant when he was sixteen. However, eight months after his second transplant, a bacterial infection set in and took his life in about twenty-four hours.

Although we will always miss Austin’s lively presence in our home, we are grateful that he is eternally set free from all physical pain. We have written two books telling our life story to give hope to those who are facing difficult situations, and we praise God that He has used Austin’s life in an incredible way to encourage and inspire so many others. and many have been brought to the Lord through his testimony.

Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

We know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose.


Brianna (24) is the oldest of the girls. She works as our office administrator, speaking assistant, and all-around tech person, as well as doing a lot of our lead singing. Brianna enjoys playing the keyboard, outdoor activities, singing, and engaging other young people in their walk with God.


Alisha (22) loves serving her family and helping out in many ways in our household and ministry. She received a heart transplant when she was three months old, and she is grateful that her heart is doing well. Some of Alisha’s hobbies include playing violin, reading, drawing, as well as writing for a girl’s magazine. Alisha’s allergies and skin condition continues to give her the opportunity to trust God and develop patience and endurance in her life.


Chantaya Faith is our very active 11 year old who does everything with great passion! She started singing “Jesus Loves Me” on stage before her second birthday, and she continues to enjoy singing for Jesus. Chantaya is happiest when she can be playing outside or making crafts. Chantaya is in sixth grade, and she loves reading. Her and her younger sister are almost inseparable!


Kyra Shianne (10) is the sweet “baby” of our family who is growing up so fast! She loves keeping up with everything her big sister, Chantaya, does. She has a sensitive nature and is “in touch” with her feelings. Kyra has a way with words, and makes us laugh with her quips. The things that delight Kyra the most right now is playing with Chantaya, and quality time with Mom and Dad.
