As a couple, we want our marriage to show others an example of the love of Jesus Christ and give God the glory in everything we do. There are many passions that God has given us, first as individuals and now together. Some of those passions include working with youth, adoption, and foster care. More than anything, we desire that others would come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. You can read below to learn about some amazing organizations that we have felt led to support in honor of our wedding!
Teens for Christ Connection
TFC is a ministry reaching out to the mission field of teenagers in rural communities across Northwest Kansas and Southwest Nebraska. In rural communities where youth ministry programs and resources are limited, TFC desires to partner with churches to meet this need. Whether this is through providing community youth groups, coaching those already working with youth, or supplying resources and extracurricular activities for area ministries, TFC desires to connect teens with the truth of Jesus Christ and equip them to live out the Great Commission. When Ashley was in high school, the TFC staff was instrumental in shaping her faith in Christ. After college she was able to serve with TFC full time for a couple of years and the organization is still very important to her. Anything you donate will be put to use to help with ministry expenses so that more teens can come to know Jesus.

Child Bridge also collaborates with child welfare organizations that are critical to improving outcomes for children and families.
