Meet The Missionaries
My wife Diana and I have been serving Christ and his Church faithfully for the last 8 years through FOCUS and teaching. This last year during my fifth year of teaching middle school, God’s call to form young men and women in the lives with Jesus Christ and his Church became very clear, and I was called back to FOCUS, to help give and live what I was given in College. With our three boys: Simeon Christian, age 3; Joseph James, age 2; and Dominic Charles, six weeks; Diana and I have really enjoyed sharing the gift and witness of marriage and family with our students on campus. This being my first year back on campus after a long vacation, we are so blessed to be at the University of South Dakota, helping to make Jesus Christ and his Church loved and known.
