Our Deputation Video
Jenny & I met at our sending church, West Florida Baptist Church, in our singles Sunday school class. Shortly after we started dating, we began to work in different ministries of our church. During the time we were serving, we both knew that God wanted something more from us. We didn’t know what that “more” was, so we kept serving and doing what we had been doing. We both began to pray and ask God to show us what else He wanted us to do and trusted He would show us when the time was right.
During a Wednesday evening service while listening to a missionary update, the Lord used their video to call us as church planting missionaries to New Zealand. Through prayer, counsel and God’s Word the Lord confirmed in our heart His calling on our lives. We are excited about what God has done and what He is going to do.
Where We’re Going and Who We We’ll Work With
Shortly after our survey trip, the Lord confirmed in our hearts that He wanted us to start our ministry in Ashburton, New Zealand under the leadership of Veteran Missionary Michael and Nancy Grove. He is the pastor of Victory Baptist Church there in Ashburton. While all the details of the work we will be doing has not been finalized we know that is where God would have us. We will work with them until we have our residency and then as the Lord leads we will start another church with the goal of turning that work over to a national pastor.
