Matt and Teri were born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and chose to raise their family and build their lives there, until God prompted them to make a change.

Separately, they were involved with missions in college and for a short time after. Once they were married and had children, it was something they put on hold until joining Christ Community Church (CCC) in Omaha in 2010. While attending CCC Matt and Teri became involved with youth ministry and the family enjoyed helping with community outreach.

In 2012 they both started sensing the call of missions from God and two years later they left everything and moved to the Dominican Republic for 2-years Envision. While in the DR, the entire family participated in the many different ministries, which led them to the opportunity to open a new Envision Site in Miami in 2016 where they are currently Site Coordinators.

Miami is the southernmost, major city in the continental U.S., with a subtropical climate and more than 15 miles of beaches.  Sounds nice doesn’t it?  But under all that glitz and glamour, is a city full of darkness, in dire need of the truth about Jesus Christ.  The Christian and Missionary Alliance already has a presence in this area, working to be a light in the darkness.

At Envision Miami, we strive to connect people with hearts to serve God, with the churches that have been doing ministry in the area for years.  We work alongside Latino, Haitian and other multi-ethnic churches and ministries, to transform the city of Miami with the hope and healing of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to make a lasting impact on people’s lives through building relationships, engaging in meaningful work and ongoing discipleship.
