    Richard & Mary Glover

    We call our Mission Statement “Our Prayer.”


    Our prayer is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ


    Rick & Mary have served as U.S. Missionaries for Northern Indiana, with Awana Clubs since 1996. They have been married since 1982 and have 4 grown children, plus two daughters (married to two of their sons), not to mention their 3 grandchildren. They reside in Kokomo from where they travel to visit Awana Clubs, Pastors & Awana Commanders. They currently minister to 121 churches that have adopted Awana into their family of ministries.


    We provide training at all levels – Basic, Refresher, Special Topics, Commander College (3 levels), and our Annual Awana Ministry Conference for all Awana leaders. We also attempt to be an encourager and source of counsel to churches using Awana. Additionally, we raise the funds to keep our ministry in operation.


    Awana has been around as an organization since 1950, starting at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago. There are about 12,000 churches in the United States that use Awana clubs, and it is anticipated that there will be at least that many by the summer of 2013! Over 1,000,000 children are hearing the gospel each week in Awana Clubs somewhere in the world.


    There are presently two missionary couples serving Indiana and about 85 other couples serving as U.S. Missionaries. “Northern Indiana” started as the northern third of Indiana, but was expanded to include a number of the clubs north of Indianapolis starting in April of 2010.

  • CrossWorld

    Lynford & Sharon Regier

    Our mission purpose is to empower national Ecuadorian believers to become involved in the evangelism and teaching the Word of God. This has been accomplished through the teaching ministry of the Berean Bible Institute in Quito, Ecuador. The discipleship ministry of each missionary is a key factor in the accomplishment of the great commission. Missionaries must “go” and “make disciples” of all nations. Every believer has the major responsibility to fulfill this discipleship ministry in our lifetime.


    Our duties:

    • Training leaders to become equipped with the Word of God to teach others
    • Encouraging these leaders to train others also
    • Through the discipleship process, getting the believers involved in a local church
    • Developing all the ministries of the local church that are necessary for the believers to become disciple-makers



    Q: How many years have you been working in this mission field?

    A: My wife and I have been involved in missions since 1976 in the state of Indiana and since 1991 in Quito, Ecuador. Church planting is our passion. We believe that the strong teaching of the Word of God in a local church will develop strong believers to become disciple-makers.


    Q: What main event prompted you to go to this mission field?

    A: God called me (Lynford) into the ministry at the age of 14 in a camp through the encouragement of another missionary. Since Sharon and I were married we believed that missions must be a part of our life and family. Ecuador had a need for more in-depth teaching of the Word of God for the national pastors. That was my gift. At the age of 40 we studied Spanish to be able to teach the Word. For 19 years God has prepared men and women for the work of the ministry. Our greatest joy has been to teach others.

  • Life In Messiah

    Wes & Lori Tabor

    Since 1887, the organization's main focus has been to share God's heart for the Jewish people, sharing the biblical evidence that the Messiah has come and His name is Jesus. Our staff are engaged in relational evangelism, personal discipleship and biblical training, as well as promoting biblically-based support of Israel and opposing anti-Semitism in all its forms.




    Q: How many years have you been working in this mission field?

    A: Thirty-six years (since 1975)


    Q: What main event prompted you to go to this mission field?

    A: I was seeking direction for ministry when a friend challenged me to

    consider joining American Messianic Fellowship (summer 1975). I applied,

    was accepted for an internship, and thus began the adventure! Our love for

    the Jewish people/the nation of Israel has been deepening for more than three decades.

  • Midwest Church Extension

    The purposes of this organization are to facilitate the planting of new churches and to re-plant struggling churches. In every case, the aim of this organization is to oversee the planting and development of IFCA International churches until they are able to function with sufficient stability and in a manner by which the Great Commission may be increasingly fulfilled through the consistent, faithful preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This endeavor shall be carried out with the intent that such churches as are planted and re-planted by this organization shall remain member congregations of IFCA International.




    Q: What are some of your accomplishments over the years?

    A: Midwest Church Extension is the result of a merge between three smaller church planting agencies, which took place in 2004. Over the years, each of those agencies started dozens of IFCA churches in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and neighboring states. Since the merge, MCE has started / restarted seven plant ministries. We currently oversee the planting ministries in thirteen different fields.
