ABWE Tax Preparers
Ken Howard | D.A. Rainsberger Co.
D. A. Rainsberger Co. is a family-owned, Christian-based accounting firm that has been helping those in full-time ministry since its founding in 1952.
In the 1980s, Ken Howard’s uncle, Gary Rainsberger took over the business; and Ken followed in his steps in 2011. A 1997 Cedarville graduate with a degree in accounting, Ken uses his gifts in accounting and 15 years of experience preparing taxes to help missionaries.
Along with his dedicated staff of 3, they prepare approximately 525 returns annually-many of these returns are for missionaries in the U.S. and abroad.
Jeff Trout was raised on the mission field with his parents, ABWE missionaries Bob and Lynne Trout. A 1991 Bob Jones University Grad with a bachelor’s in accounting, Jeff has worked in the non-profit field in financial senior management roles for 21 years. He was first licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in 1994 and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants.
He began his tax practice in 2010, and particularly loves working with missionaries. He currently prepares tax returns for approximately 160 ABWE missionaries, and missionaries represent about 85% of his tax practice.
Jeff and his wife Sheri, and their eight wonderful children live on a 60-acre ranch in the plains of eastern Colorado.
