Our beautiful daughter graced us with her presence five years ago, and was joined by her twin brothers one year ago. Now, as associate and student pastor, it is our passion to see people and churches revitalized for the work of God's kingdom.

Justin 
I began ministry in 2006, after serving for several years in the United States Air Force. I have spent ten years in bi-vocational and full time ministry while also working in construction, electronics engineering, and insurance. It is my mission to see people advance in their calling, and I look forward to working diligently in partnership with other ministries toward that end. We have recently joined the team here at LFA, and are looking forward to seeing all that God has in store for this community. 
 
Kari 
I have worked for the past twelve years in bi-vocational and full time ministry while also working in the field of business, finance, and mental health counseling. I began in ministry with children and women, and have experience in counseling both individuals and support groups. I am passionate about seeing churches reach healthy functioning, and seeing people come to emotional and spiritual health.
