Grayson and Jessie both attended the University of South Carolina Upstate. We met through our involvement with Cru as student leaders. We were married in May 2012. For 2 years, Grayson worked part-time for Cru and Jessie worked as a Registered Nurse at a hospital. On September 27, 2014, we welcomed our first daughter, Lydia, into our family. Then on September 2, 2016, Ellie arrived and lastly, Violet joined us on August 18, 2019! God has truly blessed us with 3 beautiful girls! We are excited that the Lord has called us to minister as a family when He led us to join staff full-time with Cru in 2015.
We are both passionate about working with college students in the Upstate of SC as our staff team has the opportunity to reach over twenty colleges by launching spiritual movements. Grayson, specifically, works at USC Upstate in Spartanburg and Limestone College in Gaffney. Jessie spends her time at Converse College ministering to the girls there. Our desire is that each campus would be a place where Jesus Christ captures hearts, transforms lives, and launches men and women into a lifelong adventure with Him! Our prayer and hope is to bring college students the message of Jesus Christ and see their lives transformed for His glory!
