WHO WE ARE
Matt and Karen met in college during missions conference, of all things! At the time, we had no intention of serving overseas, but after marrying and spending several years of working in the marketplace and serving in lay ministry, we both felt God calling us to follow Him to Europe. We joined Greater Europe Mission in 2004, and moved to rural County Meath, Ireland for our first term in 2008, where we worked alongside a local church and its sister church plant in youth ministry, mentoring and outreach. In 2013, we relocated to the Dublin suburbs.
WHERE WE WORK + WHAT WE DO
We live just west of Dublin City in a large multinational and multicultural community, where we've been called to love, serve, and share a life following Jesus. Our focus is on discipleship and leadership training through the local church, creative arts (Matt is a woodworker and Karen a writer) and community development.
We'll be back in the US mid-June to late-August 2018! We can't wait to touch base with you and share what we've been up to -- rather, what God's been up to -- in person!
PARTNER WITH US
We are able to live and minister in Ireland thanks almost entirely to the faithful financial support of churches and individuals. In recent years, Karen has taken on freelance editorial work in order to supplement our income.
