There is no greater privilege than knowing God and being used to build His Kingdom, which lasts forever.


First 15 Years of ministry: 

Campus Ministry: University of Washington, in Seattle. Loved doing ministry at UW. Go Huskies!

Second 15 Years: 

Creative Arts Ministry: Southern California. (Video production, graphics, web-design, audio/visual, writing for various Cru ministries). Using my creative skills to help increase our capacity and win students to Christ, build them in their faith, and send them to the world. 

Final 15(?) Years: 

Campus Ministry: MPD Coach: Helping send young missionaries to their assignments through theological development and coaching them in their Ministry Partner Development (MPD) - trusting God for providing the finances they need to go to their mission assignments. I have the privilege of supervising them during this difficult time and pointing them to Jesus and preparing them for lifetime of fruitful ministry. I have seen 100% of the people I've coached, more than 40 young missionaries, report to their assignment for either a 1-year internship or full time. Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” John 9:37-38


I have been on staff with Cru since 1986. Originally from Hawaii, I did evangelism and discipleship with the Campus Ministry at UC Berkeley and then at the University of Washington in Seattle (when I married Duncan). I currently serve as a Finance Analyst with the Campus Ministry of Cru. We make sure that every donated dollar is properly used and accounted for.


Our daughter, Chelsea, received a degree in Psychology from UC San Diego in 2015 and married Tony Pelleriti in Summer of 2017. She earned her Ph.D. in Computer and Data Science at Chapman University and continues to teach Statistics and Data Science. Tony works for a business that cleans pools but is learning video editing.
