I am the director of International Ministries (IM) of Assemblies of God World Missions. My office and I oversee these multi-faceted ministries that have a footprint in every region of the world.

Each ministry has a specific purpose and mission—to serve the missionaries and nationals who request their assistance. All are passionate about reaching and touching people with the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

My office also offers covering for the Commission on Children’s Ministries and the Commission on University Ministries. I created and lead the annual Compassion Forum, which provides in-depth training in ministries of compassion for our missionaries.

My office also oversees a resource Website, CompassionLink, produces a quarterly CompassionLink Journal, and offers quarterly webcasts on issues in compassion ministries..
