Background: Eva was born and raised in Papua New Guinea, the sixth of seven children of missionary parents. She trusted in Christ as her Savior when she was four years old and has always felt drawn to ministry.
Education: After graduating from an missionary high school, Eva attended Baylor University and received a BA in French and Foreign service. She found such joy in leading Bible studies with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship that she went on to get a MA in Christian Education at Columbia International University. There she met her husband and was married in 1988.
Ministry Experience: Eva and her husband spent twelve years
(1991-2003) in Indonesia with a church planting team working among two different Muslim unreached people groups. In 2003, they moved to Ephrata, PA where Eva worked in her church as Office Administrator and Deacon of Women’s and Adult Ministries. In 2014, they rejoined the mission world, relocating to the Dallas metroplex to serve global workers in the area of member care.
Training: Besides her training in writing and preparing Bible Studies and Sunday School curriculum, Eva attended a year-long training in Spiritual Practices at Kavannah House, York, PA. She co-led women’s groups at Day Seven Ministries, and most recently, participated in a Peer Group Learning Workshop with Women’s Development Track, Missio Nexus.

Mission: I want others, especially women, to understand that they are created by God to share in the building of His Kingdom. I want them to realize that the words of the Bible and a relationship with its author can equip them to journey in joy and fulfillment.
Life-Giving Activities: For rest and rejuvenation, Eva enjoys baking, crafting, house decorating projects, doing puzzles and watching BBC films.
