Reaching the heart of Europe
Working with Convoy of Hope throughout Europe in reaching the marginalized.
Who we are
When I was in my first year in high school, my family tragically lost my brother to a freak accident while on a camping trip. Not even a year later we almost lost my father to another freak accident. I was at one of the lowest points of my life and I couldn't take it anymore, I just wanted to end it all. It was that defining moment when I realized I had been given a second chance.
You see, I was actually born in the former Soviet Union. Just days after I was born, I was placed in an orphanage until a loving and caring couple decided to adopt me. The miraculous part is that I wasn't supposed to have had this second chance at life. I was born with physical handicaps and the odds of having been adopted or even thought about, were impossible. I realized my life mattered, I had a purpose and I could use my life to make a difference however I could.
I then met my wife in college and from then on have worked as a youth pastor, worked overseas in Antwerp, Belgium and now looking forward to spending the next chapters with her back in Europe with Convoy of Hope.
I grew up in the heart of Massachusetts in a loving and caring family. We attended a wonderful church in Worcester, MA and it was at that very church where my desire and passion for missions grew even more. I attended my first missions trip when I was just 14 years old and it changed my life forever.
Through the years I have traveled the globe to numerous countries assisting with organizations including OneHope and traveling with my school on a month long trip to Asia.
It was in college where I meet my soon to be husband and from there traveled to West Virginia to serve as youth pastors.
It was during that season where God had called the two of us to serve as Missionary Associates to Antwerp, Belgium. We are now beyond blessed to be heading back to Europe to continue Gods call to reaching the refugees.
