Global Ministries Speakers Available to Local Churches

Don and Maryjane Westra

Don and Maryjane Westra, finishing a four year appointment in Honduras for Common Global Ministries, are available to speak in the Southeast Conference and Tennessee Region Disciples of Christ.  The dates they are available are March 25 – April 9, 2017.  Global Ministries will be responsible for their transportation to the region and conference, and we request that the receiving congregations provide housing, meals, and local transportation.

Don and Maryjane Westra have been appointed by the Common Global Ministries Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ to serve with the Christian Commission for Development (CCD) and the Evangelical and Reformed Church in Honduras.  Don is supported by One Great Hour of Sharing.

Kahala Cannon

Kahala Cannon, a missionary who has served in South Korea and India, and who is from Tennessee (member of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church Disciples of Christ) is available to speak in the Southeast Conference and Disciples Regions June 1 – 29, 2017.  Global Ministries will be responsible for her transportation to the region/conference, and we request that the receiving congregations provide housing, meals, and local transportation.

Common Global Ministries has a great handbook on how to setup interpretation that can be sent to you with many suggestions of how to use your missionary. Kahala herself has expressed interest in working with refugees or any sort of social service that assists them in their transition as she was working with migrant workers in Korea and would love to make the global-local connection.  Kahala is a real gift to the church and she will get your congregations excited about God’s mission in the world.
