HLA Member of the Board of Directors since 2015
My wife Stacey & I have been married since 1987 and by the grace of God have 5 children, born from 1992 – 2003. We launched into home education when our oldest 2 children entered 6th & 3rd grades respectively; our youngest 3 have grown up entirely in the homeschool environment. Our oldest graduated university in 2014; our second child is currently a junior, and our third is graduating this year as a member of HLA’s first flight of totally homeschooled graduates and God-willing will serve the next 2 years as a missionary apprentice before entering university. Our youngest 2 are still being nurtured in the environment fostered by our God, our home, & HLA.
We see the fruit daily of Father’s blessing on our decision to train & educate our children at home. We had several hopes that prompted our decision, but healthy spiritual formation of children was our greatest desire. I’d never describe homeschooling as easy, but rewarding is the word that dominates above all others.
After answering the call to ministry in college, we’ve been in ministry & missions in the U.S. & South Africa ever since. I’m currently in a bi-vocational season — I roast coffee to support my ministry habit.
To anyone reading this, whether currently a member family of HLA or perhaps just exploring possibilities, feel free to reach out to me if there is anything you’d like to ask. It is extremely humbling to serve with you alongside my fellow board members & the HLA team,, whom I hold in increasingly high regard the longer I see God’s work among us.
Thank you in advance for remembering us all in prayer. We are partners together with you!
