My wife and I met and began married life in my home state, Texas. We studied together at Dallas Theological Seminary, then moved with two small boys to Japan in 1995. For 11 years, we raised our family and led a church planting team in the city of Okayama. With three teenage boys, we moved to Tokyo and served with the church planting team that launched SonRise Cafe. From 2011-2014, we lived in Virgina and served began a focus on team and leader development with missionaries around the world. Since the summer of 2014, we have lived in Prague as members of another new church planting team and continue to serve missionary leaders, teams and organizations as a coach and catalyst for personal growth and missional progress.
