They were engaged, married, and then they took off for Dallas Theological Seminary where Tom graduated in 1983.

He has led over 80 trips to Israel and over 180 to the Middle East.  After pastoring churches in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico for 20 years, Tom and JoAnn were called by God into missions in 2001 just months before the September 11th attack on America.  In 2017, Tom and JoAnn launched UnCharted, which ministers to Persecuted Believers, the Underground Church, Holocaust Survivors in Israel, and the forgotten women of the Middle East. JoAnn leads Not Forgotten, a ground-breaking ministry to Jewish and Muslim women in the Middle East and has a passion to train women to reach both groups.
