Missionaries to Wales

Adrian – Addison – Avery – Ashlee

 Looking back over the years, it doesn’t take long for us to know that God was leading us and preparing us all long to be the ones that GO.  Through faithfully working in our church, training and leading people to Christ, God has directed us each step of the way.  

We are pleased to begin our missionary journey and hope that you will partner with us in prayer that God will continue to direct our steps, provide the financial support necessary, and that we will effectively fulfill our purpose of pointing people to Jesus.

Our Story

Kevin

I had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home with godly parents who showed me how to Love and serve the Lord. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior when I was 6 years old and followed in Believers Baptism shortly after.

For the last 20 years I have been involved in a successful Real Estate business in Springfield, MO. Throughout my career, I have volunteered and served the Lord in many different ministries at Cherry St. Baptist Church. Over the last few years I have been the coordinator/leader of the Missions Trips for Cherry St. and have led several trips. It was through this ministry that God began to work in my heart for the Gospel to be shared around the world. Understanding that God can use normal people that are willing to be used by him.

In 2019, I was able to lead a Missions trip to Wales, UK and here my heart was broken for the people that have never heard the gospel, and they needed someone to tell them about what Jesus had done for them.

Throughout my internship at Cherry St. I have remained focused on leading people to Christ here, and discipling them to grow in their relationship with Jesus. During our first term we will be serving alongside and learning from Richie and Missy Orrick in Buckley, Wales. During this time we will be exploring where we will plant a church. We are so excited to do what God has called us to do.

I am so thankful to have been raised in a God loving and God serving Christian home. Because of the faithfulness and example set by my parents I accepted Jesus Christ at the early age of 5 years old and followed in Believers Baptism two years later at South Campbell Ave Baptist Church.

I grew up serving in church from the age of 5 singing with my family. I would also look forward to helping my dad with the bus visits too. When I was old enough I began serving in the nursery. At age 14, I began working in Awana, playing in the orchestra, singing in choir and helping whenever and wherever I could.

I was so excited in 1999 when I got to take my first missions trip over to the United Kingdom. I was able to see two very different ministries, one in London, and one in Bessbrook, Ireland. I did not recognize, at the time, the work God began in my heart for the people of this country.

I was able to go to the UK three other times after that and on the missions trip with Cherry St. Baptist Church, to Wales in 2019 my eyes were open and my heart was burdened for the people of Wales, and to share the love of Jesus Christ with them. This is a place that was once a leader in revival, that has now become a lost and dark place. We are so excited to help bring the light back to wales.
