Ephraim is Nick’s third son and was a part of the company from its earliest days, helping with tree removal and tree trimming after school or during summer breaks. Through High School and after, Ephraim went on eleven mission trips all around the world to places such as India, Bolivia, Hong Kong, and Rome. The group he went with used a high-energy martial arts demonstration to share the gospel. Ephraim holds a 3rd-degree black belt in Tai Kwon Do.
