Taylor and Christy grew up in Kansas and met while attending The University of Kansas in Lawrence. It was during their time in college that they were each impacted by the ministry of The Navigators. They quickly developed a heart to see the students around them grow in their understanding of who Jesus is and how to find life in Him. They joined staff with The Navigators and spent several years investing in students at KU. After being asked to consider a move to Ohio they sensed God calling them to move to their present position as co-directors of the Miami University Navigators. Taylor still enjoys running with Christy (which is how their friendship started) and Christy still enjoys cooking and baking with Taylor (which has been a key part of their relationship since).
