Tracy is originally from the Seattle, Washington area but God keeps moving her elsewhere. She lived in the UK while working towards her Masters in Theology & Development at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies. While there, class time was just as valuable as tea time, as she built relationships and learned about life and ministry from her international classmates. She then served in East and Central Africa for 10 years with World Concern, a Christian Relief and Development organization. This season in Africa shaped how she sees the world, God, the Church, and missions.
In 2011 Tracy was serving along the Somali-Kenya border during the Horn of Africa Famine when she met her future husband Adam (from Calgary). Valuable connections were also made which opened the door for her current position as the Pastor of Outreach Missions at CrossRoads Church in Red Deer, Alberta. She has been at CrossRoads for nearly 9 years.
In ministry, her joy is networking, building up the Kingdom and watching others catch the vision to be missional--right in their own community or around the world. Adam and Tracy find great joy together when exploring the beautiful outdoors through hiking, backpacking, biking, ice skating, or cross-country skiing. Together, they have a 7-year old daughter and are in the final process of adoption.
