He received his formal education at Abilene Christian College (BA, 1953) and College of St. Thomas (MA, 1971). Brother Earnhart began preaching more than 50 years ago during his college days in Texas, but has since preached in Nigeria, West Africa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri and now in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of Invitation to a Spiritual Revolution: Studies in the Sermon on the Mount (Gary Fisher, 1998). Many of his articles appeared in Christianity Magazine from 1984-1999.

He received his BS in Journalism and Public Relations in 1990, and has pursued a degree in preaching from the College of Practical Experience. He preached with the Union church in Chiefland, Florida, for almost two years, then with the Northside church in Starkville, Mississippi, for three years before moving to Louisville to work with the Douglass Hills family. He has made seven evangelistic trips out of the country-- three to Asia, one to Jamaica and three to Grenada, West Indies. He is married to his wife Teresa and has three daughters—Ciara, Alena and Camellia.
Tristan joined the preacher apprenticeship program at Douglass Hills in July 2016. He grew up in Guam, then moved to Utah and attended the University of Utah (BA, 2011). His secular work has given him experience in the retail banking industry, and he also taught English as a foreign language in China for a year. Tristan and Christy were married in 2013 and look forward to a lifetime in the Lord's service together.
