We exist to glorify God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ. One of the ways we pursue and live out this mission is through preparing and sending out missionaries to be effective messengers of reconciliation in a variety of contexts.
Aaron and Thaint
Several years ago, Aaron felt the Lord calling him to go and to bring the kingdom of God into an unreached area of Southeast Asia and start an indigenous house church planting movement. In 2013, Aaron married his wife, Thaint, and they are currently part of Known as The Way—a movement of Christ followers who are displaying His love and glory. Their vision and desire is for people to see Christ and know Him personally through His story, His family and by the way Christians live their lives founded upon the gospel.
Aaron and Thaint ask for prayers in navigating the culture, which can be difficult due to the spiritual climate, lack of community and communication barriers. The city they live in has less than 1% of Christians and lacks basic infrastructure, imports, medical access and quality-of-life standards. If you are interested in learning more about how you can pray, serve or support Known as The Way, please visit their website: knownastheway.com.

Chad and Hiroko Farmer
Chad and Hiroko Farmer have burdened hearts for the people of Japan. They desire to share the gospel with a population where only 0.25% of people have heard and believed the gospel. The need is great.
The Farmers moved to Nagoya, Japan, in 2014 to be part of fulfilling that need and bringing the gospel to the Japanese people. Chad is a pastor on staff at Mustard Seed Christian Church. The Farmers ask for your prayers: that they might be used by God to reach the lost, that they can help equip leaders and also help plant churches.
Danyelle and Franco Morón

While attending the University of North Texas, Ellen felt a burden on her heart to be a missionary in Thailand. She spent a summer in that country doing campus ministry. When Ellen returned to UNT, she prayed about meeting Thai international students. She got involved with the Thai Student Association, had Thai roommates and worked for a Thai family in their restaurant. God used all these things to deepen her desire to go to Thailand and share the good news of Jesus with the Thai people.
Ellen now serves with Pioneers on a church planting team, reaching out to university students. She is teaching English at a university in hopes of building relationships with students. Ellen will help her Pioneers team lead Bible studies on campus while continuing to learn the language.
