WHO WE ARE
Matt and Karen met in college in Chicago and were married in 1999. After the birth of our first child, 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.
We have three children: Jackson, Ella & Asher, plus a lazy lurcher dog called Cocoa.
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, and community development.
We are travelling in the US this summer! 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.
