Josh has been serving in missions since 2006 and Kari since 2010. They were called to missions before they were called to each other. Serving, separately, as teachers at Dakar Academy in Senegal, they met and fell in love and the rest, as they say, is history. Once married, Josh and Kari served together in Senegal for 8 years until 2019 when the Lord called them out of Senegal. They have 3 children: twins Nolan and Quin, and Mia.

Josh and Kari are currently stateside developing new ministry partners as they prepare to join the East Mountain team in South Africa. East Mountain serves to develop and disciple leaders in the context of Biblical Theology, Spiritual Formation, and Practical Ministry Skills. They invite South African and American interns to stay at the East Mountain ministry house for our six-week Summit program which includes training in our 3 core elements. East Mountain also invites college age young people to experience a one year residency at East Mountain.

  • Fruitful season of fundraising and sharing the vision and mission of East Mountain.
  • As a family we would continue to transition well to our season of life in the USA.
  • Abiding in Christ as a family and showing the love of Jesus to those around us.
