We are simply normal, everyday people from Iowa that have the incredible opportunity to be used by God to share the gospel. From the beginning of our marriage, we’ve known and purposed ourselves to share the gospel cross-culturally. After receiving formal educational training from a Bible college, we built a team of partners to support us as we live in Europe doing church planting full time. During our first two years in Belgium, we had the opportunity to receive a two year mentorship and practical training from veteran church planters, Tim & Barbara Downs. Their training was invaluable and prepared us for long term ministry in Europe.
