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.  When we first arrived in Europe, Rich 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 resources, classes 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, in partnership with other organizations, is involved with organizing trainings and conferences in Europe focusing on discipleship movements. In August 2018, we moved to Frankfurt, Germany to focus on going deep with resources, partnerships, and prayer to reach a city. Hospitality has always been a key aspect of our ministry and continues to be as we build out team in Frankfurt.  We are also involved in a local German church that is intentionally multi-cultural and has planted 5 churches in the last 6 years.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

We see God moving as we meet with and gather apostolic leaders across the city that have a vision to see God's Kingdom expand in Frankfurt and the greater Rhein-Main area. Our prayer is for a unity that only the Holy Spirit can achieve to see this area reached for Christ.

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

Your prayers and financial support have been invaluable in keeping us on the field. We continue to feel encouraged as Calvary sends short term teams and long term missionaries to Europe to partner with us.

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:
