Stateside Admin Support


The stateside team plays a key role in all that goes on in India. We may be few in number, but great in passion for the work God has set before them. We covet your prayer and financial support. Please pray that God expands our time, streamlines our thoughts and help us to be exceedingly efficient. You can read a little more about each team member by hovering your mouse over the images below:


By giving to this need you are helping with fees associated with entering conferences, printing material, transportation cost, and general overhead cost for these events. Your donation will be multiplied when we can go to churches, conferences, and more, by raising awareness and support of the needs in India. We need you!

“My wife, Debra, and I moved to Idaho 22 years ago. Our family has grown over the years, we have 4 children and 8 grandchildren who we love to spend time with. After selling our family business two years ago and “retiring”, I am currently serving as an elder at Calvary Boise and recently became the Interim Director of Send Hope Now. I feel led to help guide the ministry through our current time of transformation. This is an exciting and challenging undertaking for me as I am seeking to give direction under God’s sovereign plan for all the various needs, opportunities, and ministries in India. We have a great team at Send Hope, a great group of supporters and sponsors, and a great God, so I know there are amazing things ahead for the ministry of Send Hope.”

"The thing that brings me the most joy is hanging out with my 3 boys and my husband Dave. Hiking, meeting up with friends, or a trip with my family to the hot springs are all things that rejuvenate me. I love working in the Send Hope office doing whatever is needed to serve India. I will be happy to assist you with correspondence for your beneficiary, submitting donations, and questions about any current projects or fundraisers. It’s a blessing to serve you!"

"My wife, Joy, and I are privileged to have grown up in Papua New Guinea and to have served in many places (OH, MO, WI, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, PNG… ) and made some amazing friends along the way. Now we're in beautiful North Idaho, where we try to keep up with our three adventurous sons and a drooling boxer dog. We love being part of bringing the hope of Jesus to the beautiful people of India!"

"My wife Melinda and I, have been married 23 years. We have 6 kids, Jacob, Mariah (Jacob’s wife), Jonah, Josiah, Jack & Abigail. I have been to India with my son and have thoroughly enjoyed watching God’s ministry in India grow and flourish. I love spending time with my family, woodworking, running (when I have to) and enjoying my wife’s baking."

"I absolutely love punny jokes and laughing, traveling, outdoor adventures, and spending time with my husband and family. I truly love Jesus and want to live a life for Him, which is why I believe I was brought to Send Hope Now. I first heard about the mission in India about 16 years ago and ever since then I had always wanted to be a part of it somehow. It is a privilege to be a part of this beautiful mission and to be used by Lord in this capacity. I am here to serve you, our compassionate sponsors, with any of your sponsorship needs; in addition to serving our children, pastors, and staff in India. God is on the move!"
