While she directed the Potpourri Players at Community Church of Greenwood (IN) for several years, she wrote more than fifteen full-length dramas, multiple vignettes, and a series of vignettes for Moody Radio. Some of the musicals contained a cast of more than 200 people, including the choir. Some of her vignettes were published by Chapel of the Air’s 50-Day Adventure. With a BA in English/Education and an MA in Journalism, Vicki taught English and communication skills from junior high to university levels. She served a few years as the editor of One Mission Society, formerly OMS International, an organization with work in more than 50 countries. She wrote four books; two published by Victor Books/Scripture Press, one published by Zondervan, and another published by OMS Int’l.

She has traveled in more than 25 countries. Vicki is married to Charles, a pastor, and they have two married daughters and two grandsons.
