My wife, Liz and I have been with the IMB for the past 19 years working in Minsk, Belarus; Novosibirsk Russia and since December in Moscow Russia. I am third generation pastor married to a mk from Venezuela, so we have been gifted with an incredible heritage. I was born in El Paso, TX, grew up in Illinois, was a pastor in Missouri. We have three wonderful daughters who are in either college or graduate school and are spread out from Virginia to Missouri to Los Angeles. I focus my work on mentoring and discipling young believers in their walk with the Lord, personal evangelism and leading in ministry. We have planted churches in Minsk and Novosibirsk and are gearing up to work with church planters in Moscow. Our desire is to see Russians reaching Russians by finding God prepared people, sowing the gospel, discipling believers and bringing them into groups that will grow into reproducing churches. My wife and I love to bicycle, make things with our hands and see God transform lives.
