Wick has always loved building. After serving for four years in the USAF, Wick ran his own construction company building and remodeling houses in his hometown for twelve years. In 1992, God called Wick to international missions as a builder. He and his wife, plus three young daughters, moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to build the International Evangelical Church and the Evangelical Theological Seminary with SIM.
After the completion of that project, Wick, his wife, and now four daughters, joined Envoy International in 1998. They moved to Bolivia, South America to help build the church again, this time in the area of world missions. Wick has spent the past twenty years teaching the World Impact Seminar for Envoy and has seen the impact that it has for pastors and church leaders as they understand their role in world missions and actively work to involve their congregations in local, national, and international missions.
