Chris and Ed were sweethearts at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, CA. Forty-two years ago, they and their three children moved to Crown Point, IN. While her children were in school, Chris finished a bachelor's degree in English at Purdue University. Now married for 50 years, Chris and her husband, Ed, enjoy working in the ministry together where they both serve as elders. Chris also heads up our intercessory team at Living Stones; teaches prayer, theology, and communication classes in theROAR; and enjoys traveling to the mission field. (She's been to Mongolia three times and Thailand once!) Chris is passionate about passing a legacy of prayer on to their children (natural and spiritual) that's marked by the faithfulness and friendship of a loving God.
Andrew has served as the Director of Life Groups for the last two years and with his wife, Debbie, also leads a weekly Life Group. He hails from the legendary lushness and wild terrains of the East Coast: the FAR East coast of Taiwan! But after moving to a different East Coast - Richmond, VA, finishing high school, and graduating from the University of Richmond with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, he answered the call of the wild and authentic Chinese food and shipped himself back out to Taiwan on a church planting mission. Two years later, Andrew returned to the U.S., embraced his comfort zone, and went back to school. He escaped a Ph.D. program and landed with a Master's in Pharmacology after which he answered the call to move to the Midwest. It is at Living Stones where Andrew found what he had been looking for all along. Andrew loves to see the lost restored to their loving Father. His and Debbie's passion is to see God's love and the gospel of Jesus Christ be transformative in all arenas of life. Andrew and Debbie have three, beautiful children.
