Andrew and Teri Adair (The Antioch Partners, Global)

Andrew, who grew up in Houston, and Teri, who grew up in Southern California, met and married while they were studying at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA. Teri completed a Masters in Cross-cultural Studies at Fuller, and Andrew received a M.Div. with a concentration in Cross-cultural Studies. They both share a passion for cross-cultural ministry. Andrew and Teri have three children (Rebekah, Gabrielle and Matthew).

The Adair family moved from Central Asia to Houston in 2006 and accepted the invitation to start what has become The Antioch Partners (TAP). Andrew serves as the Executive Director of TAP, and Teri serves as the Personnel Coordinator. TAP became operational in the summer of 2007 and more than seventy Partners are now serving through TAP (and more are on the way). The Adairs are convinced God is continuing to call men and women from Presbyterian churches to serve him in the world in creative ways, and structures like TAP are necessary to help these servants thrive in their ministry callings. Andrew and Teri are grateful for the privilege of partnering with local Presbyterian churches here in the US in the assessment, training, sending, support and care of long-term, cross-cultural servants who are being used by God in so many ways around the world.

Antonio Alvarez (The Antioch Partners)


Jose Antonio and his wife, Veronica Alvarez have been happily married since 1992 and are currently based in San Antonio, TX. Antonio and Veronica are both originally from Mexico. Antonio grew up without family and lived in an orphanage, several houses and on the streets throughout his childhood. Antonio’s socioeconomic reality did not allow him to imagine that one day he would be attending graduate school. However, for the last ten years, he has been able to successfully obtain several postgraduate degrees. Antonio’s passion is to use his education to teach and consult at universities and seminaries with students, professors, and emerging Christian leaders in the US and Latin America. Antonio currently teaches and leads conferences in the US, Latin America and Poland. Antonio and Veronica are excited to use their gifts to help educate individuals through theological education. In this sense, they are deeply committed to reach pastors, professors and emerging Christian leaders in Latin America and beyond, one heart and mind at a time.

Ashraf Abdou (YWAM, Spain)

Ashraf and his wife focus on training and discipling leaders through Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) with YWAM in Spain and North Africa. The students who attend these schools learn about God and then begin to do outreach where they have the opportunity to share the Gospel with others. In addition to DTS School Programs, they are also able to provide opportunities for leadership training, Bible Study Groups, and evangelism during the year. Ashraf believes that although these students come to know Christ, the most important part is that they are trained in leadership so they can facilitate more gospel learning as they return to their homes.

Chris and Francelia McReynolds (The Antioch Partners, Mexico)

Chris and Francelia McReynolds live in Mexico City. Their ministry focus is capacity-building in Christian education and discipleship through the AMO® Program in Mexico, as they work with children and their parents, as well as teachers. Their calling is to equip adults with biblical principles so they can more effectively nurture the image of God in each child. The McReynolds use the AMO® Program, published by Chrysalis International, to equip parents and church leaders with a Christian mindset to disciple children through biblical, Christian education that teaches the whole child. Beyond children and their parents, teachers are trained, who then become trainers; a process which facilitates growth of local leaders and the AMO® program in Mexico.

Frontier Fellowship


Frontier Fellowship traces its beginnings back to a kitchen table in Portland, Oregon, in 1981. It was there missiologist Ralph Winter, pioneer of the unreached people groups movement, shared his vision to revive a frontier missions focus within the United Presbyterian Church with Harold Kurtz, longtime missionary in Southwest Ethiopia. They began under Harold’s leadership as United Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship and were later renamed Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship.

As the organization developed over the years, God challenged them to take our ministry further in denominational and generational focus, wider in geographical scope and deeper in their understanding of frontier mission. Today they are known as Frontier Fellowship, continuing to look toward the frontier where the Good News of Jesus has yet to find expression. They believe His message is for everyone, and each person deserves the opportunity to hear the Gospel in the context of his or her language and culture.

To that end, Frontier Fellowship is committed to their call to engage the Church—inviting, educating, inspiring, gathering and equipping followers of Jesus to embrace their God-given roles in making His name known among every nation, tribe, people and language.

Operation Uganda is a faith-based non-profit that has been working in Uganda since 2005. They rescue and care for orphaned and vulnerable children, and work to create sustainable community development projects in Uganda. Operation Uganda provides educational scholarships for children, and educates community members with skills and business training, and has recently built a primary school and early childhood center.

Founded by a survivor of SVAC, Rescue One More is on a mission to change this. Working in collaboration with local leaders, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the Church, Rescue One More sets survivors on a pathway to safety, justice, and healing while working to bring an end to SVAC once and for all.

Through these projects Christ’s love is shown and children are able to learn about the Bible in schools, and share that news with their families and friends. Over 125 FPC Covenant Partners began sponsoring children in the Mutendere ADP which is scheduled to close in September or 2019. Through FPC’s support and partnership, and the Lord’s faithfulness, the Mutendere ADP has been able to provide clean drinking water, provided avenues for healthcare, education, food security, and more for these communities!
