We met at Twin Cities Master's Commission (TCMC) in north Minneapolis, MN in the fall of 1999. A heart for missions work was already in our hearts long before we even met.
As TCMC came to an end our relationship was taking off and we were set to be married and we also accepted a position of youth pastor at New River Assembly of God in Red Wing, MN for 7 1/2 years. While there we worked with kids, youth, young adults, women's ministry, worship teams, summer camps, Missions trips, building projects, renovations, bus ministry, discipleship and outreach.
After those years we were asked to join the staff of now, Living Hope Church (Formerly; Mora Assembly of God). We served in Mora, for 2 1/2 years. We worked with kids, youth, worship team, summer camps, Missions trips, Church restructuring and outreach.
Our lives are not our own they are totally committed to following Christ. We have prayed for many years, (as individuals) and now as a couple "God wherever you want us to go - we will go, whatever you want us to do - we will do.”
Now look! He is doing it - He is taking us to the things that He has prepared for us in advance to do.
We have been privileged to bring The Gospel to many places on mission trips: Panama, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Spain, Belgium, Scotland, Czech Republic, England, Kenya, LA California, Costa Rica, El Salvador and most recently to Tallinn, Estonia where we have lived the past three years.
Now the Lord has opened up the door for us in another Baltic State which is Lithuania. how exciting!!
there is a window of opportunity right now to establish a Church Planting Multiplication Network here in the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. What this means is this we are wanting to establish a strong and self sustaining church planting network within each country and across the baltic Countries that is linked hand in hand with the national church that will become a church planting movement!
All of this so that people in each country may have the chance to hear the great news about Jesus Christ and make steps to believing in him and learn how to follow him.
This First Church Has already been planted in Tallinn, Estonia. There are now approximately 130 people attending each week between 2 Sunday morning gatherings, and this is after two years of being planted.
— imagine this is just the start, The best is yet to come!!!
As we return to Baltic's we will have a team of church planting missionaries that will establish another church in the capital City of Vilnius, thus beginning the Church Planting Network.
We are pleased to lead a church planting team in another Baltic state: Lithuania.
“We will go Lord, we will serve You!”
