Bruce was raised in a Mormon family in Southern California. He was saved after a Christian won his mother to Christ, and she in turn shared the true gospel with him. Bruce graduated from the University of Southern California, The Master's Seminary, and Dallas Theological Seminary. He met Aimee, the love of his life, at a Trader Joe's market. They have been serving the Lord in Ukraine since 1992 and have been blessed with three children.
Bruce's main ministry is training and mentoring pastors. He also teaches and serves in their church in various capacities. Aimee is a worker at home who concentrates on helping Bruce and training up their last child at home. (Their two grown sons are studying in the States - one at The Master's University and one at Liberty University.) She also serves in church when the Lord brings opportunities to give, help, encourage people, and host various gatherings in their home.
