Tony and Meghan both have a passion for ministering to young people. Tony was born and raised in the Oregon City UPC church.

When she was eleven, her and her parents went to Spain and served as missionaries for three years. During this time they assisted with the Bible School in Madrid, ministered in existing churches, and pioneered a new work in Vigo, a city in northwest Spain. In 2008, Meghan’s family re-located to Oregon City. Meghan taught Sunday School, coached a Junior Bible Quizzing team, and continues to assist in coaching a Senior Bible Quizzing team.

AYC, for me, was the single most life changing trip of my life. It was life changing to see 33 Maasai tribe members receive the Holy Ghost, you could see the sweet Holy Spirit all over them. AYC gave me the opportunity to explore my love for missions, and even further my life in missions. I had the feeling I was called to global missions, my AYC trip completely confirmed that for me.
