Vision for Laboring

Riley and I both grew up in Jefferson City, Missouri but didn't meet until after we both graduated from college. While in college, God did amazing things in our lives through the ministry of Campus Outreach on totally different campuses. Riley became a Christian at SEMO her freshman year, and two years before that, a Campus Outreach staff guy led me to Christ at Lindenwood University. We were both discipled through CO and grew a ton through the local church. We joyfully were married in May of 2019. Now on Staff at Truman State University, we desire to see lives changed much like ours were in college. Second Timothy 2, verse 2 says, "What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to faithful men who will go and teach others also." Our heart is simply to entrust the good news of the Gospel with those we meet on campus and pray that they would go and teach others also! We long to see men and women find their hope and satisfaction in God, fight their sin and learn to share their faith with the hopes of reaching the nations for Christ!
