Rance grew up on the plains of Texas. As the son of a farmer, he learned about the processes of cultivating, planting, watering, and growing. He became serious about his faith in 2005, and began a life of learning to help others seeking God's truth. After serving as a missionary intern in Zambia for a summer, Rance decided to devote his life to taking the gospel to others. In the fall of 2008 he began studying at Sunset International Bible Institute. Midway through the program, he completed another summer missionary internship in India. He graduated in 2010, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies.
Rance enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, playing the banjo, smoking BBQ, and eating pecan pie while drinking sweet tea
