About Us

Reached Through Campus Ministry
We believe in campus ministry because our lives were changed through Chi Alpha campus ministry. While students at secular colleges, Charles at the U. of Alabama and Amanda at the U. of Northern Colorado, we encountered what it means to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus.

From Students to Staff with Chi Alpha
After graduation, Charles interned with XA in Bellingham, WA in 1998-9 before serving as associate staff with XA at the U. of Louisiana-Lafayette from 2000-06. Amanda interned at UL in 2002-03 before returning as staff from 2004-09.

• A New Calling and a New Relationship
A new direction opened up when Jesus called Charles to Belgium to work as an MA with Students for Christ for 2.5 years in Liege, Belgium. We also began dating long-distance during this time, and were married on July 17, 2009.

• Our vision for reaching Belgium
We believe that reaching students during their years at the university is crucial to changing this country. Through contact and relational evangelism, and mentoring believing students, we want to create a community of believers that will lift up Jesus.

• Our Support Team
Due to our work with Chi Alpha, we already have a team of churches and individuals who support us. We are currently at 30 percent of our budget. It is our hope to raise this support in the next six months so that we can be back in Belgium by Fall 2010.
