One tiny family on a voyage into the great unknown, following after the heart of God. We seek the adventure He has in store for us in the mission to further His kingdom. Everything we do and all that we are is in pursuit of Him (or at least we hope it to be). We want to share this voyage with any who will join – from the very greatest to the least of these, we believe Christ came for all who will receive the gift of His grace. When you choose to receive that grace, you are joining our adventure. And therefore, we VOYAGE TOGETHER!
Bri: Nurture comes naturally to this Momma of two. She felt a call into ministry while in high school. Although the idea of what ministry looks like has changed a few times over the years, she has never stopped listening to the direction God leads. Currently, she serves as the grant writer and development assistant at a local pro-life ministry (for those interested, check it out here). Bri is often a victim of the infamous Netflix binge and is a lover of all things sushi.
Justin: While his day job is being the projects manager for a pretty sweet landscape company, his true passions are being a daddy and soaking up all he can about the desires God has for us. His heart lies in young adult ministry and is a big part of the reason we are on the path we are currently. He is fearless and determined and ready to face whatever God sends our way. Justin is a self-titled plant geek, spending any free time he has cultivating bonsai trees in our kitchen window. And unless you speak Latin, don’t try asking him what kind of plant that is.
Aelah Grace: Our first munchkin (of a hopeful 3 or 4 or…..). She is fiercely independent and incredibly cheesy. Her name is Hebrew for terebinth tree – it signifies finding your place in God and is also the valley where David defeated Goliath. Our prayer is that she will find her place in Him at a young age and have the courage to face the giants she may run into as she follows His will. Currently 3 years old, she loves to read, swim, and spend time with her friends. She inherited fearlessness from her Daddy and walking into walls from her Momma. We cannot wait to see the plans God has for her.
Obadiah Ryker (Obi): This little man just made his appearance a little over a month ago! Our life has been turned upside down with his arrival, but we couldn’t be happier. He is curious and fierce! Obadiah means servant of the Lord and the Obadiah encountered in the book of Kings is known for fearing the Lord. Our prayer for him is that he would be known for those things as well – knowing and fearing the Lord. For now, we know, the force is strong with this one. 😉
From our family to yours – adventure is out there! God is waiting for you to become a part of the story so that we can VOYAGE TOGETHER. Want to know more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
