Abbey and I have been married since 2000. We have 4 children and are active members of our church, First Baptist Church in Forsyth, MO. Abbey and I have been traveling, sponsoring, and leading trips for students to the Washington D.C. area since 2012. We have seen the value in this type of experiential learning and wanted to extend this opportunity to other students and faculty; therefore we started our business Civitas Tours.

We have expanded our travel from Washington, DC, to London, Greece, Italy, and Hawaii. We are continually traveling to new locations before we lead a trip because we believe in giving our clients the best and safest trip possible.


We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-identical in nature, coequal in power and glory. (Deut. 6:4; John 1:1-4; 16:7-15; Luke 1:35; Matt. 3:16-17)

We believe that Christians should bear a good testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ by living lives separated unto God, abstaining from worldly practices. (Rom. 12:1-2; I Cor. 3:16-17; 8:13; II Cor. 6:3,14-18; I Thes. 5:22; I John 2:15)

We believe in the verbal, God-breathed inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testament, consisting of 66 books, inerrant in the original writings. The Bible is God’s sufficient revelation to man and there is no need for any additional revelation from God. (II Tim. 3:16,17; Matt. 5:18; II Peter 1:21,22; John 16:12,13)
