Our History in Ministry

Our ministry journey began in international missions, serving for nearly 10 years with Youth With A Mission. We were based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Budapest, Hungary, but led teams to various locations in India, Africa, Europe, South America. The last leg of our missionary career focused on the Balkan nations and the former Yugoslavia.

Jennifer and I moved to Kansas City, Missouri with our nearly two-year-old daughter Sydney, to help pioneer the International House of Prayer in Kansas City (IHOPKC).

For the past 14 years, we have continued to work full-time at IHOPKC as intercessory missionaries and reach to live a life of radical abandonment rooted in the values of the Sermon on the Mount.

Since September of 1999, a prayer meeting has been taking place in Kansas City night and day. This 24/7 worship and prayer is fueled by the beauty of Jesus and the desire for His fame to be spread in every nation.

There are approximately eight hundred worshippers and intercessors who have kept the fire burning, agreeing with who God is and crying out for God to break into the nations of the earth with power.

As you can imagine, being part of IHOPKC since its inception has meant that we have worn many hats at various seasons in IHOPKCā€™s development.

I was able to have a strategic role in developing onething ministries, international, national, and regional.

Onething is the young adult expression at IHOPKC, calling young men and women to a wholehearted pursuit of Jesus and a lifestyle of prayer and fasting. At the most recent onething conference in Kansas City, there were over 22,000 people that attended and thousands more attend regional and international events.

I also had the honor of helping develop IHOPKC internships, book publishing and record label.

Both Jennifer and I have taught at IHOPU, as well as at various conferences and internships domestically and internationally.

I continue to serve on the senior leadership team at IHOPKC and have been focusing on establishing the international expression of IHOPKC for the last 4 years.

While working amongst the nations, as an ambassador for IHOPKC, God has led our family to pioneer a work in Brazil unto seeing 24/7 prayer and worship established.

This new assignment from God was unexpected to our family but after much prayer our family is excited about what God is doing in Brazil and feel honored to partner with Him in this new assignment.

Of all the titles and positions that Jennifer and I have had over the years the one with the most joy and honor is being mom and dad to our three amazing children.
