Bruce grew up on a farm in Oregon where he enjoyed hiking, fishing and exploring the outdoors of the great Northwest. He met Katie in Kansas City while visiting family. After dating for three years God led both of them to serve Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Kona, Hawaii at the same time.  It was there they got married, barefoot in the sand, in 2005.

In 2007, Bruce and Katie attended a Discipleship Training School with YWAM in Colorado Springs and went on outreach in China.  They returned to Kansas City and started their family until 2013, when God called them back to Colorado to work with YWAM again.

Bruce has been in the home building and remodeling industry, working in various trades for 20 years. He received a electrical and plumbing degree from Hobart University in 2008.

Bruce and Katie have four amazing children and one with Jesus. As a family, they enjoy all that Colorado has to offer – hiking, camping, and doing life with friends.
