Tom Hackett / Director









Linnea and I have been married since June of 1976. We have been on quite a journey together. The life of missions has led us to live in various places.

We have 2 daughters, 2 sons, and 3 grandsons. We are very proud of our offspring and we are totally in love with our grandsons who we do not get to see enough!

We currently live in Ridgway, Colorado and I oversee the ministries of Alternative Missions with help from staff in Ferndale, Washington.  The majority of my time is spent Building Homes and Changing Lives through our Dwellings home building ministry. I am connected with many other people and ministries that I believe in. I work with a great board and dedicated staff who are doing amazing things in various places.

I look forward to life and "work" every day.  I get my greatest fulfillment pioneering new ministries and networking with people to see the Kingdom of God advanced. My hope is that together we will advance some cause, touch lives and make a difference. 

I love this quote by Mother Theresa...

"You can do things I cannot do, I can do things you cannot do...together we can do great things".
