Gloria and Timothy serve in outreach to students at John Brown University (JBU) and Young Adults in their church and community. Many of the students are Missionary Kids (MK’s) and International Students. Serving includes evangelism, mentoring, encouragement, and discipling those desiring to work cross-culturally for Kingdom building.

About Us:
Timothy and Gloria served as WorldVenture Missionaries in the Philippines, and upon returning to the United States they continued to serve with WorldVenture as part of the Church-Missionary Relationship Team. They currently serve with Mobilization, working with students at JBU, at their church and in their community in Arkansas. Timothy is working as a WV Volunteer.

Gloria began her missionary career with CBFMS (now WorldVenture) in 1986, as a short-term worker teaching at Faith Academy in Manila for one year followed by one year in Cebu as a member of a Church Planting Team. She returned to the U.S. where she completed her seminary education and was appointed as a career missionary in January 1991. From 1991 to 2003, Gloria served as the National Director of Theological Education by Extension.

Timothy and Gloria were married in March 2003. Timothy was a widower and the pastor of one of Gloria’s supporting churches where her mother and father were members. In June 2003 Timothy was appointed as a missionary with CBInternational (now WorldVenture) and in May 2004, Timothy and his new bride moved to the Philippines where they served in Manila. Their last six years were spent in Mindanao where they provided the leadership and management in the redevelopment of Hope Mountain, a holistic training center located in Davao City, Mindanao. They were also involved in mentoring ministries, facilitating short-term mission teams and student internships.

Officially retiring as overseas missionaries in March 2013, they continued with WorldVenture as members of the Church-Missionary Relationships Team. They served churches in expanding their global influence through training and helping churches and missionaries build stronger relationships. Gloria and Timothy served as Head Facilitators for the KAIROS Course. Along with facilitating the KAIROS Course in many churches and at WorldVenture Headquarters, they were involved in mentoring missionary appointees as they prepare for overseas service and missionaries on home assignment.

Timothy and Gloria moved from Milaca, Minnesota where they were actively involved in a local church and leading the Kairos Course to Siloam Springs, Arkansas. They are continuing to be active in a local church, working with the Young Adult Ministry.

As they continue to serve the Lord, their desire for the future is reflected in the words of the Psalmist: “May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among the nations.” – Psalm 67:1 (ESV)
