Anne and I were born and raised in Buffalo, New York, committed our lives to Christ as young adults in 1975. We were married in 1981, and have served in pastoral ministry for over forty years. In 2007 we moved to Kansas City to become the Directors of the Marriage Ministry at the International House of Prayer where we continue to serve today. Our passion is for personal mentoring, teaching, and seeing every marriage thrive, no matter the odds. We are the authors of Longing for Eden: Embracing God's Vision in Your Marriage and Vertical Marriage: A Godward Preparation for Life Together. We have three grown children and two grandchildren.
