About Us

Kirsten and I are originally from the Midwest.  At the age of 5, I made a decision to follow Jesus Christ after hearing the message of the cross at Vacation Bible School.  Kirsten made that same decision at a youth event.

We were married in June 1991 and moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where we lived for 8 years.  While in Indianapolis, we served in several ministries of Lakeview Christian Center.

In September 1998, God issued a call to us to serve as missionaries.  The following summer we moved to Pensacola, Florida to attend the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry (BRSM).  While attending BRSM, we went on short-term mission trips to Cameroon, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France.  During these trips we saw God move mightily resulting in many changed lives!

After graduation, I was on staff at Brownsville Assembly of God while Kirsten and I continued our studies through Global University to obtain ministerial credentials with the Assemblies of God.  We also received two additional blessings to our family: Rebecca and Jeanne were born.

In March 2005 we obtained approval to help plant an international church in the Netherlands.  After raising our support, we moved to Hilversum, a town about 12 miles southeast of Amsterdam.  While in Hilversum we were amazed as more and more people came to the new church plant. By the end of our time there, the church had nearly 300 people from over 20 different nations worshiping together each week. After returning to the US we were appointed missionaries to France.  We were also blessed with our third child, Jonathan.

In December 2010 we arrived in Lyon, France.  During that term we partnered with the only A/G church in Lyon, France, a city of about 1.7 million people, to plant another church.  This church has grown to over 150 people, and is actively involved in reaching out to their community through street evangelism, a food pantry, and a suicide hotline.  Also, in January 2014, they started another church plant in another district of the city.

Even with the success of the church plants in Lyon, the need in France is so great.  With over 99% of French people unsaved and 96% of towns without a single Evangelical church, we have a great task ahead of us, but we also know that we serve a great God who loves the French and wants to see this nation turn to Him. Clearly, God has called us to France because of the enormous need for workers in this harvest field!

We are now in the city of Troyes, France.  We are partnering with a French evangelist with a heart to see the lost saved and equip the local believers to reach their communities.  Our ministry here involves training local pastors and congregations in evangelism and church planting, then helping them reach nearby communities with outreach events.  We also produce weekly TV programs to strengthen believers, and to reach non-believers.  These programs are broadcast online, over satellite networks, and on regular broadcast stations throughout the French-speaking world.

Will you partner with us, through prayer and finances, to reach the unreached in France?  Will you prayerfully consider joining us to see the need first-hand?  Together we can fulfill the Great Commission.
