Craig and Leilani both came to faith in Jesus as children and were confident of God’s call to a life of serving Him in vocational ministry by the end of high school. They met at Emmanuel Bible College and were married in 1996.

Craig was a youth pastor for several years and then they joined a missions organization and served with them for 14 years, reinforcing their passion for the local church and the spread of God’s Kingdom.

They, and their children, made the decision to join Ethnos, and when they graduated from Emanate, Ethnos Canada’s missionary training program, planned to go to Mongolia; but God has redirected, and they moved to Saskatchewan in May 2017. Their great desire is to see thriving, maturing and multiplying indigenous churches across Canada!
