Nick is from Tennessee and Rosie is from New York. We met in 2001 and married in 2003. We have three wonderful boys, Nikao, John-Michael, and Caleb who follow us around the world, wherever we go. We consider our calling as missionaries to be a tremendous blessing and are thankful that our families have embraced our calling and are supportive of us as we serve the Lord overseas.

Nick joined Youth With a Mission Nashville(YWAM) in 2000 and Rosie joined in 2001. During our time in Nashville we completed Discipleship Training Schools, School of Evangelism, School of Ministry Development and School of Strategic Missions. Nick also served as a small group leader, outreach leader, intercession leader and kitchen coordinator. Rosie served as a preschool teacher.
South-east Asia (2005-2011)
In 2005 we joined a ministry in South-east Asia that brings education to the poor. Nick served as a cafe manager and youth leader and Rosie served as a preschool teacher and supervisor. While overseas, we attended local colleges and received our diplomas in Culinary Arts and Montessori Early Childhood Pedagogy respectively.
In 2011, we moved back to the United States on furlough, seeking God’s direction for the next step in our ministry.

In July of 2013, we moved to Chiang Rai, Thailand to serve with YWAM. We began our required Cultural and Language Phase, with Nick completing one year of language school, and then continuing to work with a tutor.
- We believe that effective Christian ministry flows from a healthy, Christ centered home and are committed to the emotional, spiritual, physical and mental health of all of our family members to sustain our involvement in long-term foreign missions.
- We believe in the vocal proclamation that Christ alone is the way of salvation & the need for believers in Christ to be disciples, displaying the fruit of the Spirit & growing in Christ-likeness.
- We believe that the natural expression of God’s love through His people is action, specifically, in being an extension of God’s love by meeting the felt needs of the community in which each Christian lives and works.
