I used to be hostile toward the Christian faith of my parents, but I could still feel God wrestling with me. There was an emptiness in me that nothing in this world could fill. And then in September 2013 God brought me to the end of myself and overwhelmed me with the truth of the gospel. To make a long story short, I have not been the same person since.
As a new believer, I felt a desire to pursue vocational ministry but didn’t sense any open doors for me to serve in this way. So I finished my college education, majoring in Web Development, unsure of where God would lead me next.
In 2014 I discovered Heaven’s Family through the North Korean Christians Ministry after searching the web for ways to help suffering believers in this country. Over the next two years I fell in love with the ministries of Heaven’s Family and felt drawn to be more involved.
I felt a new desire to use my experience and education as a Web Developer to support missions, so I reached out to Heaven’s Family for some work advice. That conversation lead to a six-month internship in 2016 and a full-time job as a part of the Web Team in 2017. In 2018, I stepped into the role of Website Administrator and am now fully responsible for managing Heaven’s Family’s websites and online communications.
Through my role, I get to help as many people as possible discover Heaven’s Family and invite them to find their vital part in this ministry. I also help ensure that our donors stay informed about the difference their gifts are making. I’m immensely humbled and grateful for this opportunity to carry out God’s calling on my life.
I live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with my beautiful wife Abby, who shares my love for the “least of these” and faithfully supports me in my work.
