Our Story

We started our journey with foster care in 2006.  After years of not being able to have children of our own, we kept hearing God prompt us with a question.

What are you going to do with the extra bedrooms in your house?

That question led to our beautiful journey of God putting our family together!  We became licensed foster parents shortly after and received our first placement - a sibling group of four kids.  Months later, we were able to adopt three of those kids!  God knit our family together in the most precious way with MANY miracles along the way.

Our kids are all adults now and our family has grown...with all three of them now being married!  Foster care is very near and dear to our hearts because of our family's journey. 

In 2022 we found ourselves stepping down from pastoring for over 24 years.  God impressed on our hearts the great need for foster care ministry and led us in the direction of becoming Chaplains to foster care.  Our heartbeat is in two main help the youth aging out of the system and to engage the church to realize how they can DO SOMETHING in foster care ministry!

We can't do it all...but everyone can do something!
