Dave and Karen have given their lives to making disciples and disciple makers who become Jesus-like leaders.  Being multi-regional, they are especially active in the U.S., and in East and Southern Africa.  In particular, they:

  • serve in the Ministry Training Network, especially to expand and revise the Ministry Training Institute to train (in person and online) disciples for leadership in the Word of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit (
  • develop Mandate to equip, activate and send pre-deployed leaders.   The unique process emphasizes commitment to prayer, life-on-life mentoring in a small cohort, biblical alignment, spiritual empowerment, emotional health, servant leadership, cross cultural adaptation and more.
  • serve Foursquare Missions as needed with the development of the new pre-deployment Core Training for potential Foursquare missionaries.
  • teach courses in the Discipleship and Leadership Training (DLT) as needed.
