Our Missionaries

Andy Perry

 Pastor Andy will be traveling May 2-15 on a short term mission trip to Ethiopia serving with International Theological Education Ministries (ITEM). He will be teaching a course on Biblical Leadership to train indigenous leaders in both the capital city of Addis Ababa and out in the small, remote village of Bussa. The church in Ethiopia is growing significantly yet only 7% of their pastors have received any formal theological education. Pastor Andy's teaching will help these pastors to serve their churches well by being faithful to God's Word.

 

Please pray for the church leaders who will be participating in the training. Please pray for Pastor Andy as he prepares to teach, for fruitful time with those church leaders, and for safety and wellness in his travels to Ethiopia and back.

Roy and Julie Eberhardt

For many years, the Eberhardts have served in the mountainous Oxaca region of southern Mexico with Wycliffe Bible Translators.  They are currently working with a team helping to translate the Bible into the language of the Cuicatec people group.  Roy provides team support through his technical and computer expertise, and Julie trains new missionaries and helps them adapt to their new life on the field.

Emad and Michelle Mikhail

The Mikhails serve with Mission to the World as directors of Great Commission College, a Reformed training center for Christian pastors and ministry workers in Alexandria, Egypt.  Emad is also a scholar and writer, recently completing a commentary on Romans in Arabic.  They courageously serve the Lord in an often dangerous environment which is antagonistic to the gospel.  

Koji and Marcia Esaki

The Esakis serve in Osaka, Japan with Presbyterian Mission International.  Over the years their roles have changed, from church planting to theological education to running an evangelistic coffee house.  Koji currently serves as the Japan country leader for all PMI missionaries.   

Colton and Jessica Mellinger

Colton serves as the outreach director for Headwaters Christian Youth ministries in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.  As director he organizes regular evangelistic and discipleship events for area teens and serves as a resources for area churches, especially those that lack their own youth groups.  He enjoys building relationships with teens and pointing them to hope in Jesus.

Friend of Sinners Church

Back in 2015 Teaching Elder Dan Quakkelaar and his wife Sherry followed God's call to plant a church in an inner city neighborhood on Milwaukee's north side. Ministry there is extremely difficult and often dangerous, with street gangs, drug houses, and poverty being commonplace. By the Lord's grace and the Spirit's work, Friend of Sinners has become a gospel lighthouse to many in that part of Milwaukee. Due to the poverty and instability of most church members, outside support helps  make Friend of Sinners' ministry of evangelism and discipleship possible. We count it a privilege to partner with them for the glory of God in the city.
