Founder, Global Ambassador – Compassionate Hope Foundation

Forty years ago, Al and his wife Susan moved to Antioch, Tennessee and started a life-long ministry that would include a thriving, diverse church and a multi-national Christian school.

Throughout the forty years, the Lord kept calling Al to Southeast Asia where he regularly traveled to serve the nations through building partnerships with trustworthy, national servant leaders.

Working with the national leaders whom he had known and served for years, Al founded in 2011 the Compassionate Hope Foundation, a ministry rescuing and caring for hundreds of children in Thailand, Laos, and the Philippines.
