Transforming Ordinary People into Extraordinary Followers of Christ

Pioneers – Supporting church-planting teams in Southeast Asia

Tom & Carol – Supporting church-planting teams in Southeast Asia.


Tom “I serve as the Area Leader for Pioneers in a country of Southeast Asia, a Team Leader of a local team and a leader of the Story For Glory orality and Bible storying network within Pioneers My vision is to see effective church planting teams bear spiritual fruit so reproducing church fellowships are empowered to bring the Good News to the many communities without a Gospel witness here in Southeast Asia.

Pioneers InternationalPioneers partners with local churches to make disciples and initiate church-planting movements among unreached peoples. The unreached are cultural and ethnic groups without a self-sustaining witness to the gospel in their own cultures.

Carol – “I have taught at Grace International School (GIS) since 2009. At GIS, we seek to provide an excellent affordable education to missionary kids in Southeast Asia. GIS also provides educational support for students with a variety of learning needs. My personal vision is to live Christ before my students as I educate them, to integrate the Bible thoroughly into all I teach, and share the Gospel with my students. As a Third Culture Kid (TCK) myself I find deep satisfaction in providing a safe place for TCK’s to learn and grow. I also enjoy reaching out to the students in my classes who come from Buddhist homes.

Grace International SchoolChrist-integrated education. Equipping students to influence the world for Christ. A vibrant workplace for staff. An inspiring learning environment for students.
