I work with Karin Primuth, Phill Butler, Bill Sunderland and a small set of others as mission network development specialists based in Edmonds, WA at www.visionsynergy.net.
I am an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister in Seattle Presbytery. My focus at visionSynergy includes assisting Muslim-related networks (to my joy) such as the Arabian Peninsula Network among others; and secondly, assisting the global advancement of Internet and digital evangelism by working with networks focusing on that, such as the Muslim Internet Evangelism Network, Turkey Internet Evangelism Network, and others.
I spent some childhood years in Saudi Arabia where my father was pastor to expats, which embedded my love for Mus and Arabs. I served as a Presbyterian missionary teaching English and Economics at the Presbyterian-related Han Nam University in Korea from 1979-1981 (Then called Soong Jun University). My uncle and aunt are Dr. Samuel and Eileen Moffett, career Korea missionaries who influenced me greatly. My seminary work was at Fuller and Oxford.
I was ordained in 1985 and had pastoral calls as mission pastor for 8 years in two mega-churches (in Tulsa OK and Bellevue WA), and then shifted for 12 years with Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship coordinating Presbyterian mission work among unreached people groups, including serving as executive director of PFF.
In 2003 I served on the founding board of visionSynergy with Phill Butler and in 2005 shifted over from PFF to visionSynergy to become a staff member, serving there until the present time. My wife Sandy is also a Presbyterian pastor and we live in Bothell, WA with our youngest daughter (of three) still at home.
