Gurr, Morris & Sarah

missionary

Bio:

Morris and Sarah joined WIM in June of 2012. Morris comes from a busi­ness man­age­ment and pas­toral back­ground. He and Sarah are a part of the new breed of mis­sion­ar­ies that are “con­nect­ing to the nations.” Their desire is to impart Kingdom prin­ci­ples of lead­er­ship and to teach and train pas­tors and lead­ers to walk in the pow­er of God and ful­fill their call­ing. Morris has devel­oped a scrip­tural­ly-based lead­er­ship train­ing pro­gram con­sist­ing of three parts: (1) Six Requirements to Having a Teachable Spirit; (2) Three Basic Leadership Principles; and (3) Five Qualities of Good Leadership. Morris and Sarah were in Kursk, Russia in November of 2013 and were in Lezapa, Honduras in May of 2014. They are con­nect­ing glob­al­ly with pas­tors and lead­ers with plans to be back in Honduras and Russia in the Fall of 2014 and then to India in 2015.

Norris, Edgar & Pamela

missionary

Bio:

Edgar and Pamela have lived and min­is­tered in Kursk, Russia since 1998. In 2002 the Lord teamed the Norrises with med­ical stu­dents from Africa and Asia to start an English lan­guage church, Word of Christ Church Internationl (WCCI). Their vision and that of WCCI is giv­ing for­eign­ers a heart for Russia and giv­ing Russians a heart for the world. Walking in uni­ty with sev­er­al Russian church­es gives the Norrises and WCCI a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to be a bless­ing to Russians as well as for­eign­ers. As mem­bers of the church grad­u­ate (as doc­tors & var­i­ous busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als) and leave Kursk, they take with them more than just a degree. They take train­ing in the things of God and the tools to become lead­ers and to influ­ence their soci­eties.
