Here is our alligator wrangler with a huge heart for missions! “If you ain’t sweating you ain’t serving!” – Ted
Ted has been a missions leader and champion for 25 years in 5 different churches. He has traveled widely to the mission frontlines around the world serving God and the lost, last, and least. He has found tremendous joy in being able to lead hundreds of people into being involved in missions of every sort. Sharing the love, hope, and Gospel of Jesus while feeding the hungry, providing clean water for communities for the first time, building homes for the homeless, and much more.
He feels incredibly privileged to see peoples’ lives transformed as they join in participating in serving and touching the lives of so many people around the world. “We as God’s people have the great privilege to go beyond the walls of The Church and live out what John Wesley said, “Do all the good you can”, experiencing God in surprising and exciting ways as we do!” – Ted
For FaithQuest, Ted comes alongside people and their churches, organizations, schools, or businesses to encourage, coach, and connect them with missions opportunities that are a great fit for how God is leading them. He is part of our Barnabas Ministry of encouragement and inspiration for leaders and influencers.
Ted lives in Gainesville, Florida and married to wife Danette for 21 years. Together they partner in raising their two teenage boys, Riley and Deklan.
