Dan and Joy will be returning to Europe to begin an International Church in Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon. Their goal and passion is to reach the English speaking community of all ages and people groups, and provide a place of worship and ministry. Currently they are traveling in the USA sharing the vision for this new church plant and engaging partners in prayer and financial support.


 

About


Before our missionary appointment to Spain, we helped plant a church in Arizona and taught at Southern Arizona Bible College. While in Spain we planted a church where we pastored for three years. Dan also served for 10 years as director of CSTAD (the Spanish Bible School) and Joy served as the academic dean. Since 2004, in addition to our involvement in evangelism training and street ministry at On The Red Box, we were active in mentoring the next generation, ministering on the worship team in the local church, and served in leadership on various committees and boards. Presently, we are in transition. God is leading us from Madrid, Spain to Lisbon, Portugal, where God has placed on our hearts the need to reach out to the international community in Portugal’s capital City and plant an International Church that will welcome all ages, nations, and people groups. Joy is also the Administrative Assistant to the Southern Europe Area Director. Our daughter, Charity is experiencing a gap year in the USA as she seeks direction for the next step in her adult life.
