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.
