TJ grew up in Maxwell and Kaylan grew up in Baxter.  They were high school sweethearts.  After college they spent time living in Kansas City and then Indianapolis, Indiana.  Several years ago they moved back to Iowa to be closer to family and to be part of a church plant in Des Moines.

They've recently moved back to the Collins-Maxwell area and are preparing to build on a few acres where they hope to soon have chickens running alongside their kids.

TJ and Kaylan both had their lives radically changed six years ago when they met Jesus as their Savior.  Jesus has become their deepest joy and they are excited to be part of a church in the area they love focused on people they love.
