For an overseas missionary, one serving internationally in a long-term assignment, the time comes to step out of the field and return home for a season of rest – a time for spiritual and personal refreshment, and time to develop and expand the financial partnerships that undergird their ministries.  A furlough, if you will. We live domestically, but the time has come for a similar season for us. 13 years ago, we went through a difficult season of discernment and obedience, leaving behind my I.T. career and joining Cru. Then, the difficult season of initial fundraising and re-orientation into life in ministry (which was VERY different from life in the business world!) I led a touring band on the road for 4 years.

The Gap Theory – 2012 India Tour

So far, we've already played a full show at a college, and seen 80 or so people make decisions to start a relationship with Christ. We also did a 1-day training seminar about using music in ministry.
