Stephen was involved with Chi Alpha as a student at Stephen F. Austin State University. After graduation, he serves one year on staff at SFASU and then entered the missionary-in-training program at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He returned to Texas in August of 1996 to be on staff with Dr. Samuel Mathai at the University of Texas in Arlington. When Dr. Mathai stepped away for other ministry in January of 1997 he was asked to be the primary campus pastor at the UTA. Jane started her ministry in Colorado where she had been leading the Chi Alpha ministry at the University of Colorado Boulder. She came to Arlington to assist with our growing women’s and international student ministries. They got married in 2002, and now have three daughters. In 2010 they stepped in as interim campus pastors for the TCU Chi Alpha ministry. Leaving UTA Chi Alpha in the hands of staff we turned our attention to TCU. After three years God raised up new missionaries for TCU and in 2013 they returned to UTA.
