About Us

We are about helping people reach their God given potential by:


  • Igniting Passion ~ Through relationship inspire people to passionately pursue God.


  • Empowering Vision ~  People have vision to transform their lives and community but many times lack the resources to see it happen.  We empower people through relationship and resources so that vision becomes reality.


  • Creating Sustainability ~  Helping people create renewable resources is a catalyst to long-term transformation.  By creating a sustainable source of income we empower people to help themselves and help others.


  • Equipping Others ~ Empowering people to provide for themselves is key to equipping them to help others. Once a person’s vision goes from start to sustainable they provide the resources to empower and equip the next person.
Meet the Directors

Randall & Jackie Darby

Originally from Fort Myers, Florida I was serving as a leader on a youth mission’s team to Guatemala when it became very clear that God was calling Jackie & I to serve on the mission field.

In December of 1992, we moved to Guadalajara, Mexico in order to begin an intense study of the Spanish Language. After graduation the following October, we moved directly to Guatemala and for the next eight years, we directed and facilitated a home for orphaned and abandoned teenagers. During those years, we ministered to a total of 17 youth. Living with them on a full time basis, we were able provide a family atmosphere as well as meeting their educational, physical, and spiritual needs.

From 1998 through 2012 we served as Guatemala Country Directors for Go To Nations. We brought oversight and care to the team of missionaries that God entrusted to us. During that time, God gave us a vision to build and establish a Ministry Base, which is now a reality and located just outside of Guatemala City. This awesome ministry tool continues to be a huge blessing to many and is used for various ministry gatherings as well as hosting teams.

In November of 2002 we started the ministry El Oasis and for 17 years we shared the Gospel with women who worked in prostitution.

With over 30 years of full time mission’s experience, we are more passionate than ever to see people’s lives transformed by God’s saving grace.  As directors of Start With One Global we are focused on igniting the passion of Christ in people’s lives and empower the vision God has given them.

We have been happily married since October 1, 1988 and enjoy our adult kids Caleb, his wife Kassy and Jenna who were born and raised in Guatemala.
