About My Family

When God called me to cross-cultural outreach, I assumed it would mean moving overseas and immersing myself in another language and culture. Instead, God placed me in Vancouver and gave me the strategic opportunity to welcome students, staff and researchers from a wide variety of countries and religious backgrounds. I live within walking distance of the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus and use my home as part of the outreach of international student ministry.

I am thankful for the opportunity to interact with unreached people groups, extend a warm welcome and create a friendly atmosphere where they can learn and grow and encounter God. I usually visit my extended family around Christmastime and return to the States for an annual conference for international student ministers. It's challenging work and a wonderful life.

About My Ministry

UBC is one of the most multicultural campuses in the world. People from "every tribe, tongue and nation" gather here to study and do research. The international student ministry here is designed to bless people and encourage spiritual pursuits in addition to their mental and academic lives.

Planting seeds and good news requires showing genuine love and building real relationships. I'm a chaplain on campus, providing English practice, life skills (like cooking andĀ finding furniture), personal support (grief counseling, baby showers, help through girl/boyfriend trouble) and spiritual discussions (Bible studies, prayer meetings, cross-cultural evangelism). Students are also encouraged to connect with local churches in the area and to taste Canadian culture before they return to their native homeland.
