Calvin and Mindy were both saved as children and raised in Christian homes. They both graduated from Crown College in Knoxville, Tennessee with a heart for ministry.
Immediately upon graduation, they assisted for several months with a church plant in Wooster, Ohio. Calvin then took an assistant pastorate position at Calvary Baptist Church in Ashland, Ohio, where they served for about four years.
During this time, the Lord birthed a dream in their hearts for church planting and orphan care on a foreign field. Soon after their surrender to missions, a door of opportunity was opened wide to the Philippines. Currently, they are working alongside missionaries Carl and Michelle Gormely in the Philippines. In partnership with a local body of believers, Calvary Baptist Church of San Jose del Monte, they are working together to start Bahay Sibol, a children’s home for orphaned and abandoned children. Calvin and Mindy are also simultaneously working in an area called Greater Lagro to begin the City Baptist Church.
Calvin and Mindy have four children.
