ORPHANS WANT FAMILIES
Trisha and I have been married since June 26, 1999. We have four kids Madison (9), Isaac (7), Kale (5) and Halle Jo (1). We have had the joy of serving full time in student ministry for 12 years. We served for two years in Coppell, Texas, as youth pastors/associate. Then we moved to Ozark, Missouri, and served as the Junior High Directors at James River Assembly for nine and a half years. Now, God has called us out of formal student ministry to equip churches to foster and adopt as Orphan Care Missionary Candidates.
We moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in August of 2012 to start this mission with the families of the North Texas Assemblies of God District. Before we can work full time on the mission, we have to raise 100% of our monthly budget. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in this important journey.
