Our Story

Ryan graduated with his degree in Civil Engineering from Lamar University and Laci graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (early childhood education) from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. While Ryan was in college, the U.S. Navy presented a new program for Civil Engineering students and he felt God was opening a door for the experience he would need for what God had ultimately called them to…construction missions. For the next 6 1/2 years, Ryan served in the Navy as a Civil Engineer Corp Officer.

They began serving with Builders in July 2007. Ryan serves as Director/CEO and Laci is managing editor of the Builders Blog and much of the communication from Builders.
