Lauren graduated from college with a degree in English and her sights set on a career in journalism. In 2012 she stepped in to the world of public radio and spent 5 years learning how to promote it, manage people, and a series of other skills she felt couldn’t possibly lead her anywhere. During that time, Lauren acquired a certificate to teach English as a second language. With her passport in hand, she was ready to step into a new season of adventure.
Lauren is a full time wife, dog mom, and teacher. Her calling has led her to Thailand to help develop learning programs, and pass on her passion for life to the young minds of local Thai and Burmese youth.
After graduating from college with a degree in business and a toolbox full of what would seem like unrelated skills and passions, Paris set out on an 11-month mission trip called the Worldrace. During this time, God worked in and through him in miraculous ways, and the vision and calling for his life began to take shape. After returning to the states, God’s direction pointed to Thailand and the people that touched Paris’ heart – Outpour Movement.
Along with his team, Paris advocates for the future and education of the young people who transcend the Thai-Myanmar border through a youth program called Seeds.
