Spurgeon and Gina Marie are Bible College sweethearts who have been married for 20 years. They felt called into inner-city ministry while Spurgeon was working at a youth custody facility that was in the same building which is now the Healing Hearts Ministry Centre. They have been living in North Central Regina for 15 years and ministering full-time with Healing Hearts for 13 years. They have two daughters, Tirzah and Keziah.

Spurgeon was the Youth Pastor at Healing Hearts for 10 years before moving to the position of Director of Outreach Ministries. In that time he also worked five years for Regina Anti-Gang Services as the Outreach Chaplain as well as being a volunteer chaplain at the Regina Provincial Correctional Centre. Gina Marie is involved in leading worship, leading abuse recovery groups, engaging with other mothers in the church as well as being heavily involved in the inner-city elementary school where Tirzah and Keziah attend. Tirzah enjoys anything to do with animals and is in her 6th year of training in Kempo (a form of Karate). Keziah enjoys gymnastics and almost any form of outdoor activity but particularly canoeing and climbing.
