After reading a short biography on Hudson Taylor in fourth grade I felt a call on my life to be a missionary. My father asked a simple question that would change the direction of my life: “If you want to be a missionary, what are you doing now to be one?” My eyes were open to the mission field in the hallways of my school, lunch table, and neighborhood. At Liberty University I pursued a degree in Biology. While at Liberty University I served on the YouthQuest team which visited Purcellville Baptist for two Disciple Now weekends. The following two summers, I served as youth intern and was hired full-time in the spring of 2011. My wife, Beth, and I married in August of 2011 and have excitedly welcomed our daughter, Nya, in 2015 and son, Eli, in 2017.
