With Kidz Romania since 2022


We have been married since 2017. We came from Butte, MT. There I served as the Children's and Small Groups Pastor for 4 years at Journey Church, our home church, in Butte. Ashleigh served as the secretary of the church. She also served on staff with Chi Alpha at Montana Tech. I have been involved with JBQ in the States for almost 30 years, and am looking forward to assisting with JBQ in Romania. We are also excited to help the Kidz Romania team in any way that we can; evangelism opportunities, discipleship, and/or leadership training.

Been in children’s ministry for 10 years at a church on the southern Oregon coast. Spent a year in Romania (2019) and can’t wait to return! Working with KR, I hope to continue whatever work they have going, and to continue learning different ways to do ministry.
