I have lived in New York state my whole life.  I grew up in Chautauqua County, spent a year in Oswego, back to Chautauqua (Brocton & Fredonia), on to Albany, & finally in Ithaca. And besides the snow & the cold, I like living here.

Now when we began wrestling with the idea that God was calling us to move to Ireland… the idea of leaving Ithaca was hard…and moving to another country seems a bit insurmountable at times…But I mean, come on, we’re moving to Dublin, Ireland. Not only is it an incredible city, it rarely even snows!

So I figure if I’m excited about moving to Dublin, there are probably other people (perhaps even some in Vineyard churches) who might be as well…and if so, I’d love to talk to you about what we are doing and see how you could be part of our church plant in Dublin.

And while the economy over there isn’t great at this time, there are a number of US companies with European headquarters in Dublin (Google, Facebook, Microsoft…sadly, Apple is in Cork). So, say you were a Cornell, or Ithaca College senior and looking to do something interesting next year…I’d love to invite you to join us in planting a church in one of the world’s major cities.

What about Bob?

I grew up in Western New York and have started and led missional church planting efforts for a little over 30 years. As you might gather, I have opinions about the church, and I share some of them here.
