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 while he was a senior in high school, 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 make it his life's ambition to make the gospel known. 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, and honing his passion for BBQ.
