I grew up in the rural area of Mark Center, Ohio, the youngest of Robert and Martha Arend's 10 children. I married my high school sweetheart, Katie, and we have 6 children. I am an active husband, father, and servant of Jesus Christ with a heart for ministries focused on children and the extreme poor of Tijuana, Mexico. I believe in offering a "hand up" rather than a "hand out." I typically lead 2 mission trips to Mexico each year where we perform a variety of service projects for the City of Refuge Orphanage and for families who live within the city dump, and provide advisory support for several microbusinesses started by residents of the city dump that have resulted from these mission trips.

I seek to live out the principals laid out in His word in all areas of my life. This relationship is the foundation for our family, for the services I offer, and for my relationship with you.
