I’ve had the great privilege of serving refugees full-time since 1981.

I was based in Austria for my first 23 years of ministry. I have been based in Minneapolis since 2003.

I founded International Association for Refugees (IAFR) in 2009 in response to the need for an international Christian mission designed for ministry in refugee contexts.

I have served on the UN team of World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) as Ambassador for Refugees, Displaced and Stateless People since 2013.

I married my wife, Donna, in 1985 and  have two adult children.
