Dan and Lorraine Wilson
Since the beginning of our 35 years involvement in cross cultural missions started in 1986, Lorraine and I have lived as residential missionaries in Zaire(87,88) as mission printers and in Kenya(91-99) as the Awana Africa Regional Coordinators. Upon our return from Africa to the USA, I served for several years as the Africa Director and Director of Church Planting for Global Missions Fellowship where I gained valuable insights and experience into planting churches cross culturally. Lorraine, a registered nurse and wanting to continue ministry with me, trained and joined me as a trip coordinator then became medical director of our multi-faceted Africa trips where she recruits, directs, and serves a team providing free medical clinics in remote places. My passion for formally training national church planters through our Discipleship Centers and desire to lead diverse teams on short term trips give a fantastic platform to allow others to see how God is working around the world.
Currently we live in Plano, TX and have 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren.
Joe Michael Kamau
The Rev. Joe Michael Kamau, better known to all of his friends as Joe Michael, has been involved in ministry for over 45 years.
As a small boy growing up in Uganda and son of an itinerant Baptist evangelist, Joe Michael would travel with his father to preach the gospel. Getting the practical training under the supervision of a dedicated minister of the gospel, Joe Michael quickly learned the ropes as an evangelist in his own right.
After he surrendered his life to serve the Lord, Joe went to seminary so he would have the necessary tools to serve with his whole heart. Among other varied and exciting ministries in which he has been involved, he has served with Trans World Radio as one of their primary radio preachers, been the vice-treasurer of the Baptist Convention of Kenya, on the board of the Baptist Seminary and now is XPONENT Ministries Africa Director!
Joe Michael and his incredible wife Eunice have 3 grandchildren from their 4 adult children who are all saved, serving in the church and walking with the Lord. Eunice is a professional counselor and together they serve as a strong team, dedicated to the expansion of the Kingdom.
Rev Samuel Kamau was ordained into ministry in 2003 after attending a local Bible school in Western Kenya. He first met our Africa Director, Rev. Joe Michael Kamau in 2006 on a church planting mission and became his disciple in training. Samuel and his wife Tabitha relocated to northern Kenya in 2008 as God gave him a vision to reach the northern regions of the country.
Samuel became our Kenya National Coordinator in 2012 and quickly became our
East & Southern Africa Director and has a vision to have a Discipleship Center in each of the countries of Africa! They have two girls, Favour, and Priscilla.
