Ed Fasnacht
Project Manager

Ed Fasnacht came to Service International to work as a building consultant during the Great Flood of 1993. Since then, he's been an integral part of the SI team. Before joining the SI staff, Ed was a successful entrepreneur in both the commercial and non-profit sectors. He started two contracting businesses, two churches, and two benevolence outreach ministries that are still thriving today. In 1990, Ed took part in a church-construction mission trip to Mexico that changed his life forever. He learned on that trip that he could use his skills as a contractor and as a leader to help people in need all over the world. Now, with SI, he utilizes those skills and helps motivate others to develop and maximize the most of their talents.



Patti Fasnacht
Executive Assistant

Patti Fasnacht has worked with her husband, Ed, to build two contracting businesses, a church, and two thriving benevolence outreach ministries. She joined the staff of St. Louis Family Church in 1994, and worked as receptionist, secretary, and clerk accountant until August 1999, when she joined the SI staff during the Kosova refugee crisis. Her keen understanding of international affairs and her experience with non-profit accounting make her an invaluable asset for Service International. Patti supports every SI project with book and recordkeeping, secretarial duties, and on-site project support. Patti also loves to spend time with SI volunteers as they come and go on outreach trips and she helps ensure that every participant has a life-changing experience.



John Barbeau
Domestic Projects

John Barbeau has incredible leadership talents and construction experience that are a great support for Service International. He gained those skills and experience by serving as a platoon leader and company commander in combat during the Viet Nam war and by spending 35 years as an aggregate inspector with the Illinois Highway Department. Since becoming an SI volunteer in 1993, John has joined nearly every SI Disaster Response Team, serving as crew leader on many of them. After he retired, John joined the SI staff to help plan and lead construction trips and to manage the warehouse. John's skills and experience really come together at Service International.
