Ethan’s passion for frontier mission—fueled by prayer and a deep love for the global Church—is grounded in years of experience in cross-cultural ministry and business leadership. After graduating from Texas A&M, he served for ten years as a Young Life Area Director in the Houston region. In 2002, he and his wife Amber served with Africa Inland Mission for two years in Kenya, living and working with third-culture kids at Rift Valley Academy. Upon returning to the US, he worked for several years as a Sales Executive in the medical industry, Pastor of Missions and Local Outreach at Faith Bible Church (The Woodlands, TX) and Global Outreach Pastor at Scottsdale Bible Church (Scottsdale, AZ), a large, multi-campus congregation.
Ethan and Amber live in the Scottsdale area and have three children. When he’s not traveling, Ethan loves playing basketball, fishing, snowboarding, eating Tex-Mex food with his wife, home DIY projects, daddy/daughter dances and watching his kids (and Texas A&M!) play sports.
