When Alli and I (Byron) were college students, she at Northern Arizona University, me at Oregon State University, neither of us had any inclination to be missionaries to college students. What we did have was a desire for God to use our lives to have a significant, positive impact on others. She got a degree in Elementary Education and I got mine in English. Both of us thought we were going to be teachers after college.
Well God had other plans. Throughout our years as students God got a hold of each of our hearts. What was once simply a desire to impact lives became a call from God to make disciples, to take the gospel to college students.
It has been quite a journey of faith as we have followed God's leading. In 2010 He lead each of us to do an internship with Cru at Oregon State University where we met each other. Three years later we got married, on December 14, 2013. On February 19, 2016 we welcomed our first child, Caleb, into the world!
We are currently serving at the University of Oregon. We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to share our story with you and tell you more about what God has put on our hearts. God is at work in the lives of young people on college campuses across the nation and here at the U of O. We count it a joy and a blessing to be used by God to share the gospel with this new generation of world changers.
God bless you.
