Prior to Germany, they lived in Memphis, TN and Taipei, Taiwan. Altogether, as a family, they have traveled to 25+ countries. Janice served for 10+ years as a teacher and holds a Master’s degree in TESOL. Kelly was a German major, earned an MDiv., and is currently a PhD candidate in Greek and New Testament. Their daughters Phoebe and Helena have grown up trilingual (English, German, Chinese).  They love soccer. Helena plays guitar and piano, and Phoebe learns violin. 

They have planted a new German-speaking church with locals among Germans and others from many different multicultural backgrounds in the heart of Frankfurt. Kelly also leads the Master of Arts in Planting and Revitalizing Churches at the Wiedenest Biblical Theological Academy and is co-director of the Center for Church Planting in Frankfurt, Germany, a training institute for young urban church planters seeking to start creative churches, projects, and initiatives in the city.

Both Kelly and Janice love to connect with students, talk about traveling abroad, and each individual’s calling for their own life.
