Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

A look back

Active Missionaries

We have a great team of committed missionaries, serving in various places around the world. We'd love for you to meet them so you can pray better for them!

Scott & Noel Hardaway:Papua New Guinea

Scott & Noel serve at missionaries in Papua New Guinea.
After graduating from Asbury Theological Seminary (KY), Scott served as a pastor for 12 years in Michigan. He stepped down from that role after the loss of his first wife to cancer in 2012. Noel earned her degree in Bible and Elementary Education. She served as a missionary in Senegal, Africa from 2006 to 2010.

Gene Mattox:Papua New Guinea

Gene serves as a full-time volunteer missionary in Papua New Guinea. 
God has called Gene to be a teacher at the Christian Union Bible College (CUBC) in Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea. CUBC trains national pastors from all regions of the Western and Central Highlands in Papua New Guinea.

Doug & Becky Darfus:American Indian Field

We minister to Native families on the American Indian Field, discipling youth and adults across the Southwestern U.S. We were married in 1998, and although I (Becky) had always had a heart for missions, Doug had no desire to even go on a missions trip. In a morning church service in 2004, God used a work team’s presentation to speak to Doug. Immediately following the service, Doug signed us both up for an 18-day missions trip to Kenya. I was working in the nursery that morning and was unaware of God’s movement on Doug’s heart until he shared with me, “We’re going to Africa!” 

Steve & Debbie Cartwright:American Indian Field

Our main ministries focus in the areas of encouragement and training Native Christians.
We pastor the Siloam Church, on the Gila River Indian Reservation south of Phoenix, AZ. There we are also involved in youth and children's ministries as well as adult discipleship. Besides the Victory Guitar Outreach program, which has reached many in our area with the message of Christ as well as guitar learning, we are currently heavily involved with a new ministry called SOAR - Servant Overcomer Addiction Recovery. Steve leads the SOAR meeting every Friday evening, which is reaching people even beyond the Siloam church who deal with issues holding them back from being all God has called them to be.

Michael & Donna Brown:Bolivia

From the beginning of our service to the Lord as missionaries, we discovered it to be full of many opportunities to share God's love! We are so thankful for the privilege of sharing Christ's love in a needy part of our world called Bolivia. 

David and Debbie Hawk:The Americas Region

Terry & Colleen Hawk:The Americas Region

Terry and Colleen were privileged to be part of WGM's great ministry at Escuela El Sembrador Donald Hawk (School of the Sower) for several years. They have seen hundreds of boys and young men go through the school's primary, secondary, vocational, and Bible Institute education programs.

Terry and Colleen currently serve as Assistant Regional Director for WGM's ministries in The Americas Region.
