Their Story

We were married in January 1995. Shortly after completing Bible School, we moved to Bill’s hometown. We got involved in his local church, working with the youth group, missions committee and other ministries. Bill gained experience in a variety of fields, from construction to administration to property management. Christina worked part-time with a foster-care agency, and received training as a massage therapist. God gave us our first son in 1996, and a daughter in 1999.

God began showing us a new direction for our lives in 2000. That summer Bill joined the staff at a faith-based camp and conference facility in northwest Indiana as director of grounds,facilities and construction. In that capacity, God taught us much about leadership and working for a non-profit organization. We gained an appreciation for donors and volunteers, and were excited to watch God use Bill’s skills to further His kingdom. The taste for life in ministry whetted our appetites for something more. It was time to make the next step toward missions work.
