About Us

Mark, Krista and their three wonderful sons- Caleb (2000), Jordan (2003) and Tyler (2005)- live outside of Addis Ababa in northwest Ethiopia. They have served as church planters in Ethiopia since 2015. Mark empowers and trains national leaders, develops culturally relevant curriculum, develops small groups working in different areas of Ethiopia while mentoring nationals into a deep relationship with Jesus Christ. Krista invests in ladies’ and children’s ministry and uses her nursing background to meet basic physical needs as well as implement CHE (Community Health Evangelism) in the villages to open doors which allows them to share about the love of Jesus.
