Eliza grew up in a missionary family at Camp Good News. Each summer she attended summer camp and eventually became volunteer staff. After attending New Brunswick Bible Institute, she felt called to join the CEF team as a volunteer in their office and on the program team in the summer. She helped to run their teen program for almost 10 years before the Lord called her to Blueberry Mountain as Program Director.
After three years, the Lord brought her husband Justin to the mountain. Justin continued to work that first year and eventually enrolled in Liberty University Online. After two years of school, he felt led to join Eliza in the ministry.
Though they are currently the only full-time staff on the mountain, they are praying the Lord will bring along partners for the ministry.
They have one daughter, Lilliana, with another on the way.
