SERVING IN: International
MINISTRY FOCUS: Unreached People Groups
Ty & Jessica have a passion to be a part of Jesus’s commandment of “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20. God’s heart for the nations (‘Ethne’ or people group) has been unfolding through all time – starting all the way back in Genesis. God seeks glory among all peoples of the world. Yet, there are still over 2 billion people that are considered unreached. Many of those have no access to church, a bible, or even a Christ follower to tell them the good news – the news that will save their soul.
Ty & Jess’s heart for the unreached people of the world began in a Perspectives class where God revealed to them His will for their family. After many months of praying about where God wanted them to work with unreached people, God spoke to them and gave them a specific province in an Asian country.
The second part of the Great Commission is to make disciples. The Lord gave Ty & Jess a specific model for church planting and disciple making in order to create an indigenous, self sustaining, church planting movement among unreached people of an Asian country. Now, Ty & Jessica are in preparation mode by ministering in church planting and discipleship in their home area, going to Missionary Training School, and then on to Asia for an internship. God is working and moving to guide them every step of the way, but God is also moving among others to not only go but also to send, mobilize, and support people in order to finish the task left to us to reach the whole world.
Ty & Jessica are from Alabama and have 3 daughters, ages 5, 3, and 1, that love the Lord and play a part in the family ministry.
