About Me

Me
I love that life is good. I’m a Christian. My understanding of God sets the direction of my life. I follow Christ and I invite others to follow him with me. I gladly spend my life in service to peoples living in the world’s least reached nations.
I love to cook. Food is my only hobby.
I like social media.
I have offended people on 3 different continents with my terrible Karaoke skills.
I have more generically offended people on 5 continents.

My Family
I live in Richmond, Virginia with my wife Gloria Yurihn, my daughter Ana and my son Max. They are great. Ana is very social, she loves her bearded dragon lizard and she plays the piano. She can also do a funny and humbling impersonation of me. Max loves cars, questions and hanging out at home in his pyjamas.

Mission
I’m a current doctoral student, university instructor and occasional preacher. My family and I are dedicated to making disciples among the world’s least reached nations. Formerly, I have been the Director for two different, but collaborating, Christian mission organizations. Both organizations are working to make disciples of Christ among the nations of the world that have the least access to Christianity and religious freedom. I am also the director for a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization.

Teaching
I love to teach. I have been teaching something (Spanish, English, Communication, Public Speaking, Mission and a few other things) since 1996. I currently teach communication/public speaking for a Christian university.
