How has God brought you to where you are today?

After 20 years of attending CMC and being involved with many opportunities to serve our mission family, God increasingly was putting a desire on our hearts to serve Him on the mission field. Following a Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course offered at CMC, we both came away with a conviction of being called full time into missions and in particular Europe.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

When we first arrived in Europe, Rich, with help of his engineering background, started a new ministry with GEM focused on using technology to help grow the church in the former Soviet block countries. We developed many online Bible resource and evangelistic tools. Rich then continued to serve in many areas of leadership for GEM including being the Europe director for 6 years and is currently serving on the executive team. Rich is involved with organizing trainings and conferences in Europe focusing on discipleship movements, helping our mission transition into internationalization, and leading the country leaders for several western Europe countries. We are involved with local ministries of English Evenings conversation classes, children’s church, and helping our youngest child graduate high school!

How does your partnership with Calvary help you be more effective in your work?

The prayers and financial support have been invaluable in keeping us on the field. CMC sent a short term team to work with us in a computer center outreach in Ukraine back in 2002. Individuals and one of the ABFs at CMC are continuing to be an encouragement through prayer, cards, and friendships.

How can people stay connected with you and your ministry, e.g. email newsletter, blog, social media?

For those that would like to pray for us on a regular basis please contact us to receive frequent updates on specific areas of need:
