Both of us trusted Christ in childhood and sensed that God wanted us to serve Him vocationally with our lives. That desire led us to Faith Baptist Bible College where we met. We married in 1984, and God blessed us with two children who are now both grown and serving the Lord with their own families. During seminary, God directed Jeff into teaching at Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary. He earned his D.Min. in biblical counseling and faithfully taught at Faith for over 20 years. While we raised our children and until God led us to Baptist Mid-Missions, Sherry assisted three families by nannying their children. Interest in missions instilled by our parents developed into a love for missionaries. That love expressed itself in participating in their training and in serving with them in various short-term capacities both domestic and global.
Now, God has moved our hearts to Safe Haven for Missionary Soul Care where we will serve side-by-side, hand-in-hand as a couple. We desire to continue to draw near to God—representing Him well—and, in doing so, draw nearer to each other and thereby become instruments of blessing and encouragement to missionaries around the world in their walks with the Lord.
