Follow God. Lead the Church. Change the World.


We are parents of Ethan and Sarah. We adopted them from Korea, and we wrote a lot about the two adoption processes. On September 30, 2007, we announced It’s a Boy!. In Korea, we posted 1,000 Words. On August 8, 2009, we announced It’s a Girl!. In Korea, we wrotes, Introducing Sarah!

We are ordained elders in the Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church. Joleen is pastor of West Side UMC and Randy is pastor of Centre Grove UMC in Clearfield, Pennsylvania. Randy and Joleen met while attending the (then-named) Church of God Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee, where we graduated together in 1995. In 2008, we received our D.Min. degrees Asbury Theological Seminary.

We are grateful for God’s blessings!
