On Mission with my Kids…or Is That My Mission?
About 4 years I had this idea and dream of taking each one of my children on a “missions” trip. That was when my oldest was moving in to her teenage years. WOW…this year my ‘baby’ turns 18, my next just turned 16 and my boys are 13 and 15 this year. Well a few weeks ago my two girls and I had the chance to go to Paris and serve alongside our missionaries. What a great time to be in another part of the world serving with my girls.
BUT THEN I GOT TO THINKING! THey are my mission field. They are a stewardship that God has entrusted to me. I only have them for a short time…and then I turn them back over to serve the Lord in their adult lives.
Thanks God for giving me a great group of kids: They are yours. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to invest in their lives. I love you Cory, Gabby, Chi and Si! But more than that…God loves you too!
Deuteronomy 6: “Fear the Lord your God as long as you live. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. Talk to your children when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up.”

I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly.
I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory.
I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
