Meet the Team

Though our team members are working across the world, we are united by one mission. Our team consists of fiercely compassionate, missional-minded individuals that are highly motivated to serve our kids well and provide a future these children never thought they would have.

Dave 

US CEO

Atlanta, GA

Dave graduated from Georgia Tech as an Electrical Engineer. After 4 years as an officer in the US Air Force, he joined the Federal Aviation Administration. He has recently retired after a 30-year career as a manager of a large engineering organization within the FAA. Although he loved his job and the people he worked with, he was led to move on to a more “missional” career.

He has been involved in missions within his church, Rolling Hills, for many years and has led numerous mission trips to Mexico and Guatemala. He and his wife, Renee, have also been involved in children’s ministry for many years, so the opportunity to mix two of his passions came together with Agape House Asia.

When Eva first proposed the idea in 2018, he was very excited by the concept and even more excited when she asked him to be a part of it. He has had the chance to travel to the orphanage and get to know the girls. He is amazed to know how much different their lives will be because of the generosity of our donors. These girls will know security and love for the first time in their lives. Most importantly they will learn of the love of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. There is no telling what God has in store for these girls!

Eva

Eva completed her Business Administration degree from Liberty University. God called Eva to serve orphaned and abandoned kids in 2016. Though she was limited on resources, she responded to His calling and remained confident in His promises. Eva began sharing this calling with various churches and friends. When one of the members from Rolling Hills Baptist Church, Dave, offered his help and guidance, she was affirmed in the calling. His helping hand and guidance remind her of God's promise daily.

The vision of Agape House Asia was shared to him by his wife, Eva, many years prior to its development and since then he has been supportive of it. It is Victor's prayer that God uses this organization to further glorify His name. He is extremely committed to the success of the orphanage as well as the personal development of the kids.
