Are They Ready?
Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
—Revelation 1:7 (ESV)
In the heady days following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, we headed to the heart of Central Europe. The Lord used us to help Czech national teams launch churches and a discipleship movement among their people.
After twenty-three wonderful years as fielded missionaries, we relocated to Palm City on South Florida's Treasure Coast. Recently, we relocated to Northeast Texas. From this ministry base we continue to encourage and serve alongside our dear friends, colleagues and ministry partners. Don still engages in short-term missions, develops digital discipleship resources, and provides spiritual friendship and direction for ministry leaders.
Since then, our ministry expanded to Florida, California, Oregon, and India What we formerly did for Czechs and Slovaks, and other ethnic groups, we also do with ministry leaders in America and around the world.

A Little Bit About Us
I’m a seasoned minister of the gospel in the Reformed tradition. Ellen is my wife and the mother of our three sons. She is my dearest friend and life-long ministry partner. She has always had a heart for the elderly and seeks opportunities to express her care and concern in practical ways. She takes and makes opportunities to speak of Christ and pray with others.
The burden of my heart is to come alongside ministry leaders —and their congregations—who struggle, are frustrated, and know they need help.
Our family invested twenty-five years in missions and most of that time we lived in the former Czechoslovakia. As a facilitative church planter, my primary functions were to train, coach, and mentor national church planting teams.
Before and after our service as missionaries, we served twelve years in a variety of pastoral roles.
I’m also a creative and contemplative spiritual friend and director with intuitive and innovative instincts. These experience and my temperament enables me to offer individuals and congregations assistance that is both sensitive and strategic.
If my heart, life experience, and profile resonate with you, then drop me a line to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. It would be my privilege to come alongside you or your church.
