Burke & Audre Bleecker

Burke and Audre Bleecker – When it comes to “Finishing Well” Burke and Audre do it with style! Instead of “slowing down” at retirement age, they joined OC International and had years of ministry in hospitality and transportation. Then, in early 2002 the Bleeckers moved to Arizona to join Paraclete as Service Associates. Their current responsibilities include helping the associates with mailings and other projects, joining other associates in regular prayer and cleaning the Paraclete office. Paraclete is honored and blessed to have the Bleeckers. And as far as retirement? Well, 90-year-old Burke sums up the Bleeckers’ philosophy on that by saying “Retirement? That’s for old people!”
