My wife Judie and I were high school sweethearts and have been married over fifty years. We moved back to Tucson in 2000 after fifty years of life together in various mistries in California and Indiana. We have four adult biological children and have fostered twenty-seven others. My ministry experience includes twenty-three years in adult discipleship, juvenile probation, school counseling, and supervision of foster care work. Upon returning to Tucson, Judie and I hosted an international fellowship for graduate students and visiting scholars in our home near the U of A until 2010. Together we now serve with Goshen Ministries, reaching out to refugees in Tucson and caring for orphans and widows in East Africa. We are both "retired".
