Joe & Carrie (Illinois & Minnesota)

I love to make things beautiful. I feel most alive when I am working on an art project, hosting small groups, having one-on-one conversations, and preaching in India. Carrie feels most alive when having intentional conversations over a good meal or great cup of coffee. She always has a craft project (or two!) in the works. We came to YWAM Idaho in 2008 and fell in love with the landscape, the people, and the base. Recently we moved to Texas to launch a church-based DTS. We want to mobilize people who have a love for the local church and a passion to reach the nations.
