Our story begins on two different sides of the country; a boy from the mountains of Pennsylvania and a girl from the beaches of California who found love over the tacos of Tijuana, Mexico. We were both called to do a school with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in the summer of 2013 called CSBS (Chronological School of Biblical Studies). During our nine-month school we were transformed by the love of God and the power of His word. We became great friends and by His good, perfect, and pleasing will, we fell madly in love! The year that followed was unrealistically joyful.
We were married on a beautiful July day way back in 2015. We are continuing to grow deeper in love and learning that it only comes from Christ at the center. The next two years we spent staffing and teaching in the very same bible school that brought us together in Tijuana, Mexico. During those two years we walked with students from Genesis to Revelation. Teaching the context of the bible, leading small groups, and building deep relationships along the way.
The Titus Project was our next calling. Three months of traveling with a heart to support and encourage the local pastors of Southern Mexico. Our other responsibilities included everything from helping cleanup after meals to building homes for the homeless.
After 4 years and a time of transition we moved back to the United States in order to pursue an opportunity to attend Seminary on the North shore of Boston, Massachusetts. For the last three years we were enrolled in Masters of Theology, Intercultural Studies and Christian Studies degree programs at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Chris has accomplished and graduated from his two Master’s degrees! Blaire still has one more year before she graduates with a Masters of Christian Studies. In anything we do, we hope that people would see the love of Jesus through us. It is truly a blessing to be able to bless others and spend time in His word.
We are now living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, working at Reynolda Church EPC. Chris is the Director of Student Ministries and we are so excited to be apart of this incredible Church family. We are loving this new season of life and feel we are walking out God’s calling for our lives.
