About Us

The Secker's and Gencarella's

We believe that those with abundance are “Called For His Purpose” to bless others as Matthew 25:35 tells us: For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me water, I was a stranger and you took me in, come, enter into your rest.

We also believe that those that are in need are also “Called For His Purpose” – each orphan has a purpose under God and is infinitely valuable. Each one of them has a destiny. Called for His Purpose is here to come to their aid as they reach for their destiny and purpose with hope and dignity.

Called For His Purpose was born out of the experience and heart of two families who themselves experienced first hand, the great need of orphans in the world.

Founders: the Secker Family and the Gencarella Family

The Secker Family The Gencarella Family

Charles and Kelly Secker live in Dallas. They own and manage a real estate company. They have three wonderful children, Bert, Dimitri and Anna. Their passion for orphans began when they adopted two of their children as babies from Russia in 1997 & 1999. This passion grew even more when they became involved with an orphanage in Guatemala.

David and Lisa Gencarella live in Idaho. They own and manage an online education company. They have five active children, Michael, Nathan, Matthew, Carissa and Carina. Their passion for orphans grew greatly through the adoption of two of their five children.

Charles and David have worked together for over a decade, owning and managing apartment complexes.  Capitalizing on their relationship and combining their business experience and desire to help children in need, the Gencarellas and the Seckers determined to create a platform whereby these children in need can receive immediate, permanent and life-changing support by exposing others to these children’s needs and providing a simple way for people to get involved.
