We love to hear about the ways that God is at work in your life, and if you're interested in serving alongside us, there are a ton of opportunities both in Europe and in America. Specifically, we are always looking for people to join our service teams for GEM-K winter and summer camps.

ABOUT US

We met in Cannon Beach, Oregon (1985) at the annual Village Missions pastors conference and became friends in middle school. We dated throughout university and were married on August 5, 2006. We both have a BA in Bible and Theology and Micah is completing a Master of Arts in Counseling and a Master of Arts in Theology at Denver Seminary. We have two boys, who were both born in France.

 

We've been with Greater Europe Mission (GEM) since 2009, living in both Grenoble, France and Frankfurt, Germany. In August 2020, we moved to Colorado to take a position at GEM's US headquarters. We have a passion for missionary kids, and it's an honor to be on GEM's Member Care team, encouraging teenagers and supporting missionary families throughout Europe.

 

Our story is not unlike the teens that we serve, as we both grew up as pastor's kids. We've always been very familiar with Christian values, traditions and Bible stories that we learned growing up. However, the process of connecting the things that we knew in our heads to our hearts, and making the faith of our parents, a faith of our own, has not always been as easy some may assume.

 

As our GEM-K team connect with MKs relationally, care for them emotionally and challenge them spiritually, we help them to develop resiliency. When teenagers make their own decision to wholeheartedly follow Jesus, and when families are thriving on the field, it's incredible to see the things God can do in and through them.
