Kent and Paige Parrish are missionaries to Indonesia and Asia Pacific. They have served in the Philippines since 2008 and are now serving in Indonesia. They have seen a church of 20 in 2008 become 60 house churches reaching over 1200 people regularly!  The work is thriving and will continue through our missionary friends and partners.

 

In June 2018, the Parrishes will head to Indonesia to :

  1.  Reach and equip college students through Chi Alpha (Campus)

  2.  Meet physical and spiritual needs through compassion ministries  (Compassion)

  3.  Work alongside Indonesian pastors to plant churches among the unreached  (Church Planting)

   

With about 17,000 islands and a population of 250 million, Kent and Paige desire that churches will be planted among those who are unreached. 

Jim and Jill Susa have been missionaries since 1985. Due to the situation in Venezuela, AGWM has removed the missionaries from Venezuela for a time. Jimmy and Jill have accepted an assignment in Colombia, where they will be working pioneering churches, training leaders and pastors, and ministering to the police and army bases. 

 

All projects in Venezuela will remain active. Jimmy and Jill continue to keep close contact with their pastoral team and the A/G executives. Prayers for this country are appreciated! Thank you so much!! 

 

Both Jimmy and Jill felt a call into missions at quite an early age.  Both left home to study and prepare themselves for missionary work in 1974.  After working and studying for 6 years in Ecuador with an independent mission, the Susa's became a part of the Kentucky Assemblies of God, where they were associate pastors at Faith A/G, in London, Kentucky, for close to 3 years.  After full appointment, they went to Venezuela in 1985, where they have served as missionaries for the past 30 years.

David & Patti Thomas

Assemblies of God World Missions 

Account: 2516862

The churches of the Kentucky Ministry Network first sent David and Patti to Ecuador in 1992. Serving in Andean and Coastal Ecuador, they did both pastoral and evangelistic ministry, but the thrust of their work was discipleship and ministry training. David founded a Bible college in the city of Cuenca, then renovated and turned around the oldest Assembly of God seminary in the country when they moved to Guayaquil on the Coast.  

  

After earning a Ph.D. in New Testament Studies, the Thomases were assigned to travel and train throughout Latin America, ministering in countries such as Argentina, Costa Rica, Peru, Spain, and others, as well as their beloved Ecuador. David also taught at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri.  

  

After pastoring churches and leading the missions program at Northwest University of the Assemblies of God,  the Lord has called the Thomases back to Ecuador, again to do what they’ve been doing for years: train the next generation of called and anointed church leaders. The need is very great, as government changes have stripped all but one AG Bible college of accreditation in the entire country; the Thomases lead that school.  

David & Emily Trementozzi

David will be teaching and training future pastors and leaders at Continental Theological Seminary (CTS) in Brussels, Belgium. CTS is a premier Pentecostal graduate school that brings together students from all through Europe and around the world. Many CTS students, after graduating, return home to serve in major leadership roles in the national church of their respective countries.

Emily’s extensive missionary work has trained her for cross cultural ministry and given her a heart to share the gospel with those in hopeless and desperate situations. Emily will be working in a variety of capacities related to compassion ministry.

Steve & Deanne Turley began their missionary service in January 1991 with International Media Ministries in Brussels, Belgium. At IMM they were part of a team producing radio and television programs for Europe, Africa and Asia.

In 1999 they transitioned to university ministry and co-launched Students for Christ Belgium.  SFC is the international equivalent of Chi Alpha, the U.S. Assemblies of God ministry to the secular campus. SFC Belgium currently has groups in 5 cities with some 150 students involved and hundreds of alumni. Students or alumni are leading all of the local groups and in 2010 national leadership for SFC Belgium was transitioned to a former student as well. 

 

In addition to their continued involvement in leadership development and training for students and alumni throughout Belgium and across Europe, from 2012 through 2016, Steve and Deanne served the Europe Regional Director, assisting with special projects and events.

 

The Turleys are now sensing a call to the Balkans, the most unreached and challenging area of Europe.  This war-torn and fractured region has been hurting for decades.  Steve and Deanne want to be part of a rejoined and focused effort to bring the hope of Christ to the Balkans.

Eastern Kentucky University Chi Alpha & Berea Chi Alpha

Chi Alpha is a community of believers dedicated to equipping students with real, transforming faith.  We do this through living a lifestyle of worship and honor to God, and so we meet in both small faith groups called "Connect" groups and large whole group services which we call "Converge" services.  In these meetings we have time for worship, discussion, and teaching centered around living out a life of faith in Christ.  We believe in a life empowered by the Holy Spirit to be God's witnesses and we do this in multiple ways.  

 

We believe the church is God's declaration of His kingdom coming to Earth and so we live this out through various outreach opportunities in our community; striving to serve the real needs of people.  We also strive to see every moment as an opportunity to introduce people to the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us: Jesus Christ.  In that our lives, our actions, and our relationships should all point to the one who saved us proclaiming the Kingdom of God until He comes.  If you would like more information about anything you have read, check us out at our website ekuchialpha.org, our Facebook page of the same name, orcontact Pastor Ben through email.  We would love to have you come be a part of what God is doing at Eastern Kentucky University and Berea College.

We are focused on transforming our world for Jesus Christ by sharing HOPE to a lost campus.   

 

We have 3 Core Values that drive that purpose into action:

 

1)   Fellowship -- We want students to love hanging out together and building

relationships, this connects them to the church

2)   Discipleship -- We want students to grow and learn from each other, this connects them to God

3)   Evangelism --  We want students to share His love and invite others to join the journey, this connects them to their purpose

We exist to connect students with God and each other. We believe the Bible is relevant in our everyday lives and can move us from just hearing and believing about Jesus to actually following and becoming a disciple of Jesus. Our goal is to make Jesus famous and transform students' lives so they can accomplish what they were created for by worshiping God, studying His word, serving people and being a carrier of His presence.

The national chaplaincy department has requested that the district not publish a list of the chaplains due to the nature of their ministry on military bases and detention centers.
