Joel & Mary Ann Weaver
Joel and Mary Ann are veteran church-planting missionaries. Joel is a second generation missionary who grew up in Kenya and returned to the land he loves after attending college at Bob Jones University. Joel has planted many churches in Kenya and is currently pastoring Emmanuel Baptist Church in Nairobi.
Paul grew up in Kenya, learning cross-cultural ministry from his dad, Joel. Paul continues to serve the Lord today by assisting a church plant in Nairobi and serving as the director of the Grace Baptist Mission camp located outside Nairobi. Paul works with the churches in Kenya to provide a fun setting for youth where Christ is preached, faith is nurtured, and God is loved. Paul's passion is to disciple young people for God's glory and service.
Dan & Angie Huffstutler
Dan & Angie have been connected to Kenya since they spent 2002 serving the Lord in Nairobi. They returned to the US for local church experience and additional education, but the Lord led them back to Kenya in 2010. They seek to fully establish churches for the glory of God by evangelizing the lost, equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, and entrusting the Word to faithful disciples.
Jeremy & Jenny Pittsley
Jeremy and Jenny grew up in Bible-believing homes and faithful Baptist churches. Jeremy completed two graduate, theological degrees at Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary and began support-raising in 2009, but in 2011 the Lord opened a door to work with a sister ministry in Zambia for the entire 2011 school year.
The Pittsleys have now returned to Africa and have been serving in Kenya since 2013. God has uniquely prepared Jeremy and Jenny through desire, training, and experience, and gifted them to partner with the GBM team in seizing the opportunity to train Kenyans for ministry.
Jonathan & Janet Moore
The Moores have partnered with the GBM team in Kenya to work with nationals in church planting and ministerial training. Jonathan and Janet are burdened to glorify the Lord in Kenya by advancing an indigenous church planting movement and by theologically influencing and educating the leadership of that movement.
