About

Greg believes that missions is what God has been preparing him for throughout his life, and he has sensed the call to missions for many years. He loves cross-cultural ministry and spent a year as a youth pastor at the Wesleyan Community Church in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. “I feel like I can do nothing else,” Greg stated, “but to follow Christ’s call to ‘Go and make disciples of all nations.’”

When Heidi was a teenager, she attended a youth convention that sparked her curiosity about missions, and she went on short-term mission trips. However, it was not until she began leading mission trips with Greg that her involvement in missions became more serious. She asked herself what more could she do to make a difference in the lives of people in need.

Greg and Heidi have been appointed by Global Partners to long-term missionary service in Haiti where they desire to be the hands and feet of Christ. They want to be able to help restore hope in Haitians, rebuilding lives one person at a time.

In Haiti the January after the major earthquake Greg saw poverty, sickness, and hunger like never before.  It suddenly became more than a picture on the news or a story in a newspaper.  The people had names, faces, moms, dads, children, brothers, and sisters.  When he looked around the main thing they lacked was hope.

Heidi and Greg realize that they can’t feed every hungry person in Haiti, or clothe every naked child, or provide medicine, vitamins, and health care to every undernourished person…they can’t relieve all the injustice of the government, or set everyone free from their bondage to sin.  But God has called them to be His hands and feet in Haiti, and to do all that they can with what He has given them.  They can give the people of Haiti themselves, the love of Christ, and hope.

Greg and Heidi have two children: Haley (’05).  Luke (’10)
