Dr. Craig Altrock

I’ve been part of the LST staff since 1998 and work remotely from Fort Worth, TX.  Though I’ve filled a variety of roles for LST, most of my skills end up being in the areas of implementing and executing the really great ideas that OTHERS have.  I serve as the Senior Director for LST and am constantly thrilled at the amazing work LST’s staff and hundreds of volunteers do every day.

Program Director

Leslee Altrock

I joined the LST staff in 1998 along with my husband Craig as campus ministers at the University of Central Oklahoma.  Since then, my role and passion has been to recruit and equip Christians from all walks of life to participate in life-changing conversations using LST’s approach of sharing Jesus and sharing ourselves.  I work remotely in Fort Worth, and we attend the Hills Church.  If you enjoy talking with people please give me a call.   I can help you participate in one hour conversations from home or help you go overseas on a mission project!

Program Support and Office Reception

Julie Dancer

I joined the LST Staff in 1999 and enjoy equipping people for cross cultural conversations. My first LST experience was as a college freshman serving in Cologne, Germany. I work from the LST Office in North Richland Hills providing administrative support for LST Connect, FriendSpeak, and LST International Missions.

Business Office Administrator

Donna Tucker

I’ve been part of the LST staff since 2019.   I handle accounts receivable, accounts payable, bookkeeping, and setting up fundraising for anyone going on a project.   I also have an assortment of other tasks.  I love the work that LST is doing in the US and abroad.

What first drew you to Let’s Start Talking?
I love the simplicity and truth of letting the Word be the teacher.

What is your favorite part of your job?
The best part of my job is the stories: stories about how God was moving in the lives of our readers long before we showed up on site; about how God perfectly paired a worker and a reader; about how workers learned to trust God with their fears; and about how people’s lives were changed–on both sides of the reading table.

What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?
Traveling with my family, playing/coaching volleyball, reading a great book that I can’t stop thinking about, being out in the country and watching a Texas sunset.

Where did you go on your LST project(s)?
2011 Miskolc, Hungary
2013 Scandicci, Italy
2015 Lodz, Poland

Director, FriendSpeak

Ben Woodward

I began working with LST in 2001 and have served as both Director of Development and as the director of LST’s FriendSpeak ministry.  I work remotely from DFW, traveling often to help churches and faith-based organizations reach out to their international neighbors with English, friendship, and the Word of God.  I am passionate about the work of LST and believe whole-heartedly in this fruitful ministry.  I office remotely from DFW and travel often, but am easily accessible and eager to talk about LST or FriendSpeak.

Founder

Dr. Mark Woodward

Sherrylee and I began Let’s Start Talking in 1980 at first just to take students from Oklahoma Christian to Germany where we had served as missionaries. God blessed this ministry and grew it to go into all the world. We stepped down as Executive Directors in 2016, but have continued to serve with pleasure as needed.

Founder

Sherrylee Woodward

When Mark and I began LST, we did not know how BIG God’s plans were. After all these years, we still see God doing amazing things with all of us who are willing to be used.
