Who is Reliant?

We were born in 1989 as a mission support agency for a small group of campus church planters. A lot's changed since then! (Less stonewashed jeans, for one).

Today we mobilize church planters and missionaries across like-minded missional groups and church-planting networks. As we've expanded our partnerships, we've adopted a new name. Yet our devotion to Jesus' command to "Go and make disciples..." remains. It's who we are.

A favorite scripture of mine is:"This life I live in the flesh - I live by faith in the One who loved me and delivered himself up for me." Galatians 2:20

If my mind is wandering, it is probably visiting: The beach, a coffee shop, my easel or a yoga pose.

Life Purpose: Ignite Courage

I lead today because…

I spent 29 years ministering through Campus Crusade where I had every opportunity imaginable - to pioneer among unreached peoples, join teammates in taking monumental faith-risks, see cultures changed through Spirit-filled Christians. As I turned 50, I experienced God calling me to stand behind the current generation of crazy Jesus lovers who would take risks bigger than I did. It was in my heart help give them "infrastructure" as they pursued God's calling on their lives.
