Where we serve
Carter - I am serving as the Regional Director in the Pacific Northwest; I will be leading seven teams in their mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples on the college campus. I have been a missionary in Nebraska and in Washington State before stepping into my current role. As an RD, I spend a lot of time aligning vision across the region and coaching team directors in leadership and mission-oriented skills. I will also support chaplains in their work with the teams and on campus. The best part of my job is reminding people of God's love and mercy in the midst of their suffering and success.
We both have experienced radical conversions in our life; Lesley during her time at CU-Boulder as a freshman and Carter at Auburn University as a senior. We were both living as the typical college students. We desired great things, but these things were centered on ourselves. After we encountered Christ, our desires shifted. We saw the love and mercy of God working in our lives and want to share our story with others. We believe Jesus Christ is the answer to the longings of the human heart and have oriented our lives to proclaim that truth.
We met while serving on a mission trip to Peru. We became great friends, but did not start dating until many months later. After several years of a long distance relationship, we were married in August 2018 and welcomed our first child the following year. We then moved to Spokane and welcomed our second child in 2021. As we continue to deepen our love for the Lord and for each other, we are blown away by the grace that is bestowed upon us by our Father in Heaven.
We cannot do this alone. God has called us to start our family as missionaries living out Matthew 28:18-20. We desire to give everything to Him and to follow His Will. In order the do this, we need support. Just as St. Paul was supported by the various churches, we ask that you join us as mission partners in building the kingdom one soul at a time. If this mission is intriguing to you or you share our passion, please reach out to us and let us know. We would love to sit down and talk. You will be in our prayers!
