Why Northern Arizona?

After ministering for nearly 15 years in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Lord led me to return to the United States, due to the needs of my elderly parents. I've taken with me the same heart for proclaiming Christ, developing small group communities and multiplying my life through discipleship.

My ministry roles over the years have developed a deeper passion for reaching the lost, whether it be displaced persons, refugees, neighbors, students, tourists at the Corrie ten Boom house museum, etc.; all with the goal of sharing God’s love and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Currently, I'm in the process of beginning a new ministry in Northern Arizona with the same desire to see God's Kingdom grow here on earth. Please pray with me for the Lord's leading either in starting a new ministry or joining with others who are on-mission for Jesus. The focus is to pray for and seek “persons of peace” to share the gospel with and ultimately to see them multiply their lives as a disciple making disciples through beginning “churches”: small groups of people meeting together as they grow in their faith. Whether this happens with International students, Native Americans, or any unreached people group, I am dedicated to the mission for Christ. In addition, I'm continuing to lead a ministry called Kenya Connection which serves orphans in Karai, Kenya through prayer, fundraisers and mission trips.

More than 30 years I have worked with young people through education, athletics and ministry where the goal has been to influence lives by sharing God’s love and encouraging biblical values. God has provided many opportunities for making an eternal impact in the lives of youth, young professionals, orphans and immigrants for which I am very blessed and grateful.

My heart’s desire is to be effective in ministry through my life example and whatever path God places me on. I trust that each aspect of my life’s work will draw people to the Lord and assist them in strengthening their walk with Jesus Christ, while discipling them for making an eternal impact. In order to accomplish this, I am responsible for maintaining a Reliant Mission ministry team to partner in both financial and prayer support. Since returning to the States, I've seen a great deal of financial support lapse, therefore in 2019 it's my responsibility to raise $1500 in monthly support to meet my needs financially with Reliant Mission.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of being apart of growing God's Kingdom through your financial support with Reliant Mission on my behalf.
