For Paul and Jordan, God had the plan for France in their story generations before they came into the picture. Jordan grew up with a grandpa who had a calling himself to lift up missionaries and their communities in prayer. He was passionate about seeing what God was doing across the globe, would get missionary update pamphlets regularly, and pray through them daily. Paul’s grandma had a passion for the church and was one of the first women to be a session member in the Minnesota Presbyterian church. They know that much of their calling is in part due to the fact that they had generations before them, going ahead of them in prayer.
Fast forward, and Jordan and Paul met in college through a campus ministry. From the beginning of their relationship they felt a burden to serve the French people. They were married in Minnesota on a beautiful blustery January day in 2007.
After praying about what it would look like to get to France, it became clear that becoming bi-vocational church planters was the path before them. They spent the following decade working on getting to France, and in January 2016 finally made the jump across the ocean.
The two have a great love of art and nature, and spend many afternoons in museums or wandering through parks. They have a passion to see others do good in the world and are excited to see who God will bring to the community in Paris.
