Based in Kraków, Poland. Serving the church in Kraków and Europe.
We have lived in Kraków, Poland since August 2018. We believe that Europe is ripe for a fresh encounter with God, a new revival that will shake the continent. Our heart is to see God move on the continent in a way that has not happened in centuries.
Prior to moving to Kraków, Josiah served for 4.5 years as a missions pastor at a local church in Abilene, Texas. Brandi served as a physical therapist.
During the time in Abilene, the Lord really began to stir our hearts to step into the unknown and move overseas to Kraków.
I grew up as a pastor then missionary’s kid, which fueled my love to travel and have new experiences. Life is one big adventure and I don’t want to miss out on what’s in store. I graduated from Texas Tech and was waiting to start my Masters degree when I ran into Brandi. That encounter sent us down the road to Abilene, Texas, where I served for four and a half years as the missions pastor at Beltway Park Church, helping send over 1500 people on short-term mission teams as well as nearly a hundred individuals commit to long-term missions. Brandi and I moved to Krakow, Poland in August 2018. Currently, I serve on the leadership team at Kosciół dla Miasta: Kraków, lead our English service and ministries, and serve as the Central European Regional Director and Communications Director for Prepare International. I love to travel, good coffee, just about any sport not named baseball, and cooking some gourmet dinners.
I was raised in the panhandle of Texas and have moved 8 times as I grew up as a coach’s kid, but wouldn’t change it if I could. I am a cheerleader at heart and love encouraging others. I met Josiah at Church on the Rock in Lubbock, TX and graduated from Texas Tech University in 2011. We then got married in Costa Rica in 2012 and I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University in 2014 and was a home health physical therapist for 3 years specializing in the geriatric population. I love reading, hanging out with Skye (our dog), baking, blankets, researching health and wellness topics, traveling with Josiah, listening to podcasts, and creating homemade “hippie” house products.
