About Us

We are excited to share with you what God has been doing in our lives!  Since our marriage ten years ago God has added four energetic boys to our family: Elijah (7), Benjamin (4), Paul (2), and Micah (born Feb. 11th). For the past four years we have served as Youth Pastor and Children’s Director at Carey Baptist Church in Henderson, NC. During this time Alex has worked toward a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and graduated in May 2012! 

As Alex's PhD studies have come close to the end we have talked and prayed a lot about "what's next" for our family.  We were both very involved with short-term overseas mission trips as teenagers and have often talked about the possibility of full-time mission work during our courtship and marriage. After lots of prayer, local ministry experience, academic preparation and hoping—we are excited to announce that we have been accepted to serve as full-time overseas missionaries with European Christian Mission!

Alex has been asked to serve as the professor of New Testament Language and Literature at Tyndale Theological Seminary, a mission school located in the town of Badhoevedorp in the Netherlands. Tyndale trains students from around the world and most graduates return to their home countries as leaders, pastors, church planters, and teachers! In addition to the ministry at Tyndale, we will have opportunities to minister locally in the Netherlands and throughout Europe.

By training leaders who will train leaders, we will have the opportunity to literally impact the world in direct obedience to Jesus’ great commission in Matthew 28:18-20 and Paul’s instructions in 2 Timothy 2:2. There is no more effective way to strategically multiply ourselves in ministry than to train and disciple those who are motivated and called to train and disciple others! As many parts of Eastern Europe, Africa, and Asia are experiencing rapid church growth it is imperative that churches train leaders who can accurately interpret and apply the Word of Truth.
