Learn the Vision

Trinna and I are so excited about the work God is doing in Europe. When He called us to Rome, we had no idea of the need for the gospel there. We have learned that out of the 80% of the population who claims to be Catholic, only 20% attend mass on a regular basis, the non-catholic church is considered to be a cult by many and is only represented by 1.1% of the population, and there is a stream of Unreached People Groups coming into the country. We are called to these people in Italy.

Since 2018, when God called us to Rome, we started learning and practicing methods for sharing the gospel, discipling, planting churches, and raising up leaders. These simple tools are easily reproducible for kingdom expansion—and are tools missionaries are using around the world leading to large movements of God. This was a season of sowing into our local area at the same time as preparation for joining with what God is already doing in Italy.

Praise God, in July 2022 The Crossing Church sent us to Rome! Our pastors in Italy, Pastor Lawrence and Pastor Asangika from International Christian Church Rome, helped us find a new home in the area of Rome called Acilia. This amazing international church with almost 40 nations represented has welcomed us with open arms. We feel so blessed that God has connected us with this church and we already feel like family. We will be helping them reach out to youth and young international adults in the city. As well as supporting and training young leaders in discipleship. To read our recent newsletters Click Here.

We are thankful for whoever wants to join with us whether through prayer and/or financial support (check out Our Ministry Story below for more history). We want to have a good connection with all of our Ministry Partners and make sure our supporters really understand what we are doing. The best way to do that is to schedule a time to meet you over video chat to share the ministry vision and financial goals God has given us. If you’d like to schedule a time to connect—please contact us—and let us know you want to meet.

Trinna and I have the responsibility and privilege to raise all our personal and operational expenses to be able to sustain and grow this ministry in Italy. We would be so thankful if you would allow us to share the vision and financial goals the Lord has laid before us. You may or may not be able to join my family and invest in this venture, but it would be an honor to share our story with you—and see what God is doing in your life!

Our Ministry Story

Bitter-Sweet Goodbyes

Pastor Randy recognizing our call to foreign missions

In December 2014 God spoke clearly to me to preach His Word. Ever since that moment, Trinna and I have pursued the call He has placed on our lives. It has led our family to serve in churches, prisons, communities, and nations. Trinna and I would love it if you would consider spiritually joining us as the Lord’s call has led us into full-time ministry.

After a two-year focus on local missions, God called us to take the gospel into a foreign land. It wasn’t long before He spoke Rome to Trinna and confirmed it to me, but we didn’t know when God wanted us to head to Italy. We ended up taking our first steps into foreign missions in September of 2018, leaving our comfort zone, packing up our bags, and moving to Dignata’s School of Justice and Transformation in Montana.

Trinna Speaking in Latvia

The school which was run and taught by former and current YWAMers ( Youth with a Mission) combined equipping and outreach in Montana, Germany, Latvia, and Amsterdam. During this season, we joined with Dignata in their mission to help orphans and prostitutes to be freed and protected from modern-day slavery while sharing the power of the Gospel and discipling those who put their trust in Jesus.

Ellia in Amsterdam

In December 2018 we completed Dignata’s training school and began praying for our next steps. God confirmed His whisper of Rome into our hearts, and then connected us with some people in in Italy. Since then God has been working on us, transforming us, and preparing us to move to Rome. As we prepared to move our family in July 2022, we worked locally in sharing the gospel and making disciples.

Ordained by The Crossing Church

 
For years I knew the importance of sharing my faith, but I didn’t know how to do it, or I felt too insecure. In April 2019 Trinna and I were trained and started practicing simple ways to share the gospel and make disciples who will multiply.

Gospel sharing on the street

The great commission tells us to “Go… and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I (Jesus) commanded you (Matt. 28:19-20 NASB). We must go to others, not only ask them to come with us to church. We need to accept our responsibility to disciple people in the ways of Jesus, and train them to train (disciple) others who will also obey what He has commanded. This is how the church grows and every believer can be a part of this eternal change.

Baptisms at apartments in Houston

We believe God has called us to help people see how He loves them, chooses them, restores them, and has a purpose for their lives. To do this, we’ll need both prayer and financial support, and we humbly ask that you would allow us to share the vision with you. We’d like to talk with you face-to-face if you are local, or over video chat if we’re at a distance—to schedule this, please contact us.

As stated above, if you already know you want to be a part of the eternal change God wants to effect through our family’s obedience—prayerfully consider the options below.
