SERVING IN : Australia
David and Katie Czapala began understanding God’s heart for the nations with their first short term missions trip to Guatemala in 2007. This call only grew louder as they lead short term teams to Guatemala, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand. Through those trips and attending a Perspectives on the World Christian Movement class, they realized that God was calling them to move overseas to take the Gospel to the unreached people groups of the world.
During that time, they became involved with a missionary training school in the US. As a result, in June of 2015, they led a short term trip to Sydney, and have committed to be part of the team of the next campus in Sydney, Australia. With 48% of the population of Sydney from another country, they moved to Sydney in 2016 to work with the over 50 nationalities that call Sydney home.
Currently, they live in Western Sydney and work with surrounding churches and ministries to train Christians in sharing the Gospel in cross-cultural environments. They also lead short term exposure trips to the 10/40 window to continue to mobilize others to reach the unreached.
