Bill & Julie Hughes


SERVING IN : Thailand, Asia
MINISTRY FOCUS : Church Planting, Evangelism


Bill and Julie both received a call from the Lord to preach the Gospel in Asia.

In 1991, after ten years of marriage and ministry in the States, God opened the doors and they moved their family to Thailand. They began in the central region where they spent their first seven years learning the Thai language and working with a team to plant Grace Bible Church.

In 1998, they moved to Northeast Thailand and began River of Life Church Planting and Evangelistic Ministry in the city of Khon Kaen. Starting with their outreach team and a few neighborhood boys, they started meeting in a rented facility. They trained their team and worked together with them to win people to Jesus and disciple new believers. After the church was established, they began reaching out to villages surrounding the city. Thus a new ministry was born.

In 2013, they began working exclusively in the villages. Groups began to form as a natural and effective way to disciple believers. Now, they oversee groups that meet in homes and a team which is made up of village believers who work alongside them to evangelize and plant new groups in the rural areas. They are very committed disciples and have a passionate desire to follow Jesus. They come back reporting what God has done. The miracles, the baptisms, the new villages being reached- all point to the fact that they could be on the cusp of a movement among the Northeast Thai people.

We believe:

  • Thai people should be able to follow Jesus, experience the Kingdom of God and have an engaging relationship with other believers without having to leave their village.
  • Villagers should be able to freely share their faith and minister to others without mandatory participation in another church that is located many miles away.
  • Home churches enable the believer to reach their family, neighbors and friends while providing a framework for discipleship and church growth within their village communities.

We began to ask “What If..”

  • Thai believers could be empowered to reach their family and neighborhood
  • Leadership and Bible training could take place right where they live
  • Thai believers could lead their own churches
  • Village House Churches could multiply freely
  • We could see a Jesus movement in the Unreached Villages of Northeast Thailand

Updated prayer requests:

  • Finances as we travel in the States this summer.
  • Direction and wisdom for the Thai believers while we are away.
  • More churches to be planted all over the Northeast, throughout Thailand and Asia.
  • Health and strength
