Cory and Kris Thede
As a child, Kris spent two years in Haiti. Cory’s first trip was during college. Together they have served with Global Partners since 1998.
Through agricultural, medical spiritual education, Haitian Christians can live better and touch other for Christ. One improved life impacts many other within a community. By helping to meet needs, Cory and Kris strive to strengthen the faithful and draw people to the Lord.
Cory and Kris encourage, pray, work and partner with nationals and international visitors. As part of the Haitian community - sharing in the sorrows and joys of normal life - the Thedes desire to glorify God by helping build His kingdom.

The Keith Family
MISSION: Working to see an English-led discipleship movement and the creation of new Christ-centered communities in Stockton-on-Tees, England
Tim and Dani are high school sweethearts and the parents of four children. Their happy American dream life was interrupted by the loss of a child to a miscarriage. Since that time God has used joy and pain to call them to make disciples in the North East of England.
Tim and Dani partner with Greater Europe Missions, or GEM, who's mission is: Reaching Europe by multiplying disciples and growing Christ’s church.
The Tees Valley is home to 700,000 people, over 90 percent of whom have no relationship with Christ. Located several hours north of London, it's a region of neglected by both national and international politics, where working class Brits and Asylum seekers struggle to make ends meet. Stockton-on-Tees and neighboring cities are in need of the hope, life and community that come with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
