Tony and Debbie arrived in Vienna on January 12th, 2007. They met in graduate school at BJU in 1998 and were married in 2000. Debbie received a master's degree in education in 2000, and Tony received a master's degree in theology in 2001.
They are assisting the Stan Shelton family in church planting, as well as evangelistic and discipleship ministries in Vienna. These ministries include Sunday services, children's club, Bible studies, and special evangelistic outreaches. They also count it a privilege to be working with Austrian believers in the ministry.
They have taken Colossians 4:3,4 as their ministry verses:
"Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak."
Tony and Debbie have four children: Cara, Steven, Heidi, and Anna.
