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.

VanWinkle, Jim & Brenda

missionary

Bio:

Twenty-sev­en years after min­istry ordi­na­tion, the scope and depth of Jim and Brenda’s call con­tin­ues to expand. Following a church plant in the States, their focus turned to SE Asia where they taught English, dis­ci­pled new believ­ers, helped with church plant­i­ng in remote vil­lages and trained sea­soned church lead­ers.

Currently involved in Northern Ireland/Ireland, the VanWinkles hold day-long or week­end train­ing sem­i­nars in church­es and homes. The heart­beat of their mes­sage is the spir­it of adoption/belonging in the Father’s heart which brings great hope!

They are avail­able for sem­i­nars or retreats, and Brenda is also avail­able to speak at women’s gath­er­ings. She has pub­lished two books as well as a children’s book.
