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

We are ordained elders in the Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church. In July 2020, we moved from Clearfield after 12 years to Duncansville. Joleen is the District Superintendent of the Altoona District. Randy is pastor of Wehnwood UMC in Altoona.

Randy and Joleen met while attending then-named Church of God Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee, where we graduated together in 1995. In 2008, we both graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary with our D.Min. degrees.

We are grateful for God’s blessings!
