I trusted Christ at the age of seven; however, I didn’t really grow as a Christian until my mid-twenties. I met my future wife Meredith at a sawmill in Vermont, where we both worked. We grew as Born-again believers in Jesus Christ, started a family, and gave up skiing for dog sledding. God called our young family from being actively involved in the local church to full-time vocational ministry and that journey began with education and degrees in Christian Religious Education. God’s direction led our family into missions with a move to Nigeria in 2006. I have traveled extensively throughout Nigeria, helping local churches to develop dynamic youth and children’s ministries, monthly bush village evangelism trips, and administering weekly Bible Clubs in the City of Jos for orphans and national missionary children. With increased terrorist threats from Boko Haram, eventually, much of my ministry had to be confined to Jos. The need for a High School Bible and Industrial Arts teacher at the American school where Meredith served was God’s perfect timing for continued ministry in Nigeria. I have taught Apologetics, Ethics, New Testament, Old Testament, World Religions, Church History, and Industrial Arts for the last four years. My wife and I are returning to the USA this year to help meet family needs. Once again, God’s providential timing provided another opportunity to serve Him at the Richmond Christian School, which also places us within minutes of our adult children and grandchildren. I am truly looking forward to this new chapter in life which includes teaching as well as hiking, and exploring more of God’s creation.
