The ABBA Fund blog is a mix of stories and resources for adoptive families and those who are passionate about making a difference in the global orphan crisis. Read the bios of our team of bloggers/storytellers below.
I am the Director of Ministry Development for The ABBA Fund and Co-Founder of Together for Adoption. My wife and I have four adopted children and one biological child. We met while serving at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN where I first gained a deep passion for adoption and orphan care. Some of my responsibilities with The ABBA Fund include maintaining contact with ministries (churches, adoption agencies, businesses, foundations, individuals, etc.) and representing The ABBA Fund and LegacyChild at conferences, workshops and other meetings.
I also have the privilege of serving as the Pastor of Counseling at The Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, TX.
When not talking about adoption and orphans I enjoy spending time with my wife and family, photography, reading, music, and a good cup of coffee.
I am from Salt Lake City, UT but currently serving as a fulltime intern for ABBA Fund and the Austin Stone Community Church focusing on Adoption & Orphancare. My dream is to go back to Utah and start an adoption & orphancare ministry there that changes the city and world for orphans.
I help with Church Adoption Fund coordination, administration, and video work.
I serve as the Director of Administration for the ABBA Fund where I take care of everything behind the scenes. When you call the office I will be the one answering the phone most of the time. It is a joy to serve the many families and churches through this ministry. I also represent ABBA Fund at conferences around the country so I look forward to meeting many of you!
