      Equipping cross-cultural church planters in Canada

      Shane and Karen are missionary kids from the Asia-Pacific Region and Panama, respectively, and their growing up experiences impacted them in seeing the need for church planting among the unreached around the world.
      Shane’s family served with the Lauje tribe which has a thriving, growing church today.

      Karen’s family were dorm parents the first term and served in carpentry/maintenance and guest hostess/hospitality the second term.

      After graduating from the Ethnos360 Bible Institute in Jackson, Michigan, they dated long distance while getting their Elementary Education degrees from Philadelphia Biblical University (Shane) and Florida Bible College (Karen). They married in 1996 and headed to the Asia-Pacific Region two years later to teach and gain experience at Mountainview International Christian School. Karen worked in the main office as registrar and director of admissions, and Shane taught 4th grade.

      After serving for 4-years as associates, they returned to Canada and completed the missionary training program in Durham, Ontario. They served at the training centre for three years before returning to the Asia-Pacific Region.

      For their second term on the field, they served on the missionary orientation team— Shane as leadership and a Culture/Language Consultant and Karen as the Personnel Secretary for the field committee.

      They considered it a privilege and blessing to welcome new families to the field and assist them through their initial year and a half of culture and language study.

      Returning to Canada in November of 2011 for Home Assignment, they sought treatment for Shane’s Fabry Disease. Treatment for this genetic disorder made a return to the mission field impossible.

      They rejoined the training team for Ethnos Canada in July, 2012. They greatly enjoy this ministry of preparing candidates to GO to the unreached, proclaiming the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ.
