Eric is originally from Washington State and Melissa is from Michigan. We both grew up in Christian homes and accepted Christ personally at young ages (Eric at four and Melissa at seven). We are thankful for our Christian upbringing which led us to continue our education in Christian colleges in California and South Carolina.
After college, God led Melissa to teach international students in Okinawa, Japan for three years; and Eric was led to help out a church in California for a couple of years before accepting a call to teach at Vienna Christian School in Austria.
Eric and Melissa met in a summer program in Germany, receiving their Master degrees through Philadelphia Biblical University. Little did they know that God had plans for them to marry and return to Austria as full-time missionaries with TEAM!
Eric and Melissa lived in the US for two years while acquiring prayer and financial support; then moved to Vienna, Austria September 2005.
Eric enjoys fly-fishing, music, and coffee.
Melissa enjoys walking, photography, reading, and cooking.
They have two young sons, Silas & Isaiah, who love to play cars, build with Legos, and play outside!
The Lundquists are involved in a new church plant named “Lakeside” in Vienna’s Urban Lakeside, a new development in the 22nd district of Vienna.
