Missionary serving with Every Nation in missions and church planting since 1993. My husband and I served as missionaries in Lviv, Ukraine from 1993 until 2003, then we helped develop leaders at Beth Shalom, a Russian church in Brooklyn, NY from 2003 until 2004. We served as regional leaders for Every Nation in Kiev, Ukraine developing national leaders for our churches, teaching university students, and engaging in social justice endeavors from 2007 until 2011. I developed curriculums for and taught writing, public speaking, and leadership courses. I have also used my journalism skills to write in various contexts.
