BASIC JOB DESCRIPTION
Part–time Refugee Coordinator. In the winter, I also shovel snow.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Theology and a Master of Divinity from Andrews University. Presently, I am working on my Doctorate in Missiology, also at Andrews University.
HOW YOU WERE ORIGINALLY CONNECTED TO ASAP
Not sure how, but my first year of undergrad, an ASAP staff was presenting mission stories at vespers. From that beginning, I kept running into ASAP workers at Christmas Open House events, in classrooms, and local church events. I was always impressed with their ministry and what they did. During undergrad, I used their book, "Praying for the World Next Door" as a basis for missional praying in my devotion times. Eventually, God led and I was able to develop a mission project and, thanks to ASAP's help, was able to engage and serve a local refugee community with my Sabbath school class at church.
WHEN YOU STARTED WORKING WITH ASAP
I started working at ASAP in 2017 after finishing my master's degree.
FAVORITE ASAP PROJECT
Is it okay to say, "All of them"?
WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK
Having been recently married, my wife and I enjoy a wide range of activities. Everything from picking ripe fruits in the fall, cross country skiing in the winter, landscaping in the spring, and backpacking in the summer. When opportunity affords, we both enjoy traveling, rock climbing, ministry, and just hanging out with people.
