What do you do at Calvary?
As Calvary's Missions Director, my responsibility is to oversee all of the ministry that encompasses Reach Global, including: Selection and care of our missionaries (candidates, current, retired) and projects; Short Term teams; vision for reaching the lost (Global Missions Weeks, Missions Team, world religion & mission education classes); encourage other church mission leaders and individuals in reaching their full missions potential; and participate in all pastoral staff requested assignments. I also serve on Wycliffe's Presidential Advisory Counsel and charter board member of DualReach, Calvary partner agencies.
How did you become a follower of Jesus?
As a child, of five years old, my Sunday School class was visited by a missionary lady who served in China. She shared about her ministry and then shared clearly the plan of salvation. Even as a young child I understood the Message and accepted Christ as my Savoir. Two years later I was baptized in recognition of my decision. He has been faithful to me through the years and I am amazed that a missionary led me to Him in the USA!
