I am the husband to my beautiful bride of 10 years and Dad to my amazing kids—the “tiger girl” and “lil’ monster.” I love a life filled with nerf guns, tricycles, footballs, foosball (though not so good at), movies (especially Predator), comic books (yes, still), things that get me outdoors—especially mowing, playing with my kids, or just being outside.
I love living in this land of Kirskville, where Ronzas reign and Pancake City rules. But I dream of living in a place where people live and thrive as lovers of the Cross. A tribe of genuine followers of Christ, of trusting and faithful friends. If you live for that same hope—join us! Come follow in this journey, this adventure, of discovering “home” where Christ reigns, the Spirit reveals, and you are pursued with a furious love. Are you ready for a braver, deeper kind of love? Join the tribe! “Come alongside our Lord as He makes of mortal souls…something that will be used for the life of the world...” (Amy Carmichael)
Now and forever His, a friend in Christ

Hey, all! I'm Andrew William Steinbeck (Will, for short, even if I'm not actually that short), and I'm a senior Music Composition major. I'm pretty sure you'll see me around often– usually with either a piano or food–, and I firmly believe in the power of faith and prayer to do the "impossible" in the name of Christ Jesus. I proudly come from a small town, Canton, Mo., that most people probably haven't heard of, and am completely wacky and zany. No relation between these two has yet been proven, but it's not out of the question. Oh, and just to clear up any later confusion, yes, I am a PK (Preacher's Kid). When this Eagle Scout isn't with the marching band or doodling in class, I can probably be found co-leading the Prayer team, traversing wooded trails, running, speaking in Spanish, sharing corny puns, watching Doctor Who, reading up on architecture, playing classic board games, serving at a local fast-food restaurant, or playing fourth Back-up Fink in 43-man Squamish. I believe that everyone is created to serve great purposes by God, enabled through faith, and is needing and deserving of His unconditional love demonstrated through us.

My name’s Zach. I’m a junior Philosophy/Religion and Linguistics Major here at Truman. I love adventuring with my wife, enjoying the outdoors, and walking daily with God. I’m originally from St. Charles, but my wife, Amy, and I migrated up North two years ago. We love the slow-paced, friendly atmosphere of Kirksville. You might see us perusing the farmer’s market, milling around in our garden, or riding our bicycle built for two. Still, as much as we love Kirksville, we love leaving town even more. We’ve taken several adventures all over the country – to the Grand Canyon, Colorado, and the Islands of Hawaii.
Some things about me: I love running, peanut butter, Ancient Greek, sliding down handrails, backpacking through deserted wilderness, and sharing stories with friends. I also love serving with the wonderful people of the BSU as we journey toward a life full of Jesus Christ. If you want to know anything more about me, just ask.

Hola, todos! Me llamo Amy. I am a Spanish major and going into my junior year. I was married last summer to my fabulous husband, Zach. We love traveling and hope to see all 50 states together (29 by summer's end). I love photography and am constantly amazed at how beautiful God made His creation! God has blessed me in SO many ways and I want others to understand the hope and joy that Christ brings. Zach and I would love to go oversees and become missionaries to those who don't know about the love that will change their life.
I love tortillas and thunderstorms. And I believe that Windex can clean anything. I love laughing and reading books late into the night. We foster dogs at our house and have had everything from a 120 lb Mastiff to a litter of newborn Cocker Spaniel puppies. God has given me so much life to enjoy :)

-Serves and supports the Truman BSU ministry.
I have been at the Truman State BSU since June of 2000 and have really enjoyed working with the great students here. Before I came to Truman, I was in the Navy for 9 years, worked for the federal government for 4 years and was a church pastor for 10 years. I am married to Vickie who is my ministry assistant at the BSU and we have two children, Brian and Kimberly. They both live in Columbia and have become Tiger fans – Go Bulldogs. Several years ago, God really helped me understand what He wanted me to spend my life doing. It is found in Ephesians 3:14-19. I want people to know the depths of God's love for them so they will become the person God dreamed them to be when he created them. The BSU statement says it this way – Fully Living, Humbly Serving and Joyfully Sharing. I work with the Campus Missionary, interns and BSU student staff to try and make this a reality in student's lives. Everything we do works in some way toward accomplishing this vision. I hope to get an opportunity to meet and talk with you about the full life God has for all of us.
