Serving in Africa West | Africa
Luke Letsinger serves as a volunteer for the Church of the Nazarene in West Africa. He loves the Lord and strives to follow Him daily. He graduated from Mid-America Nazarene University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Ministry. From there he moved to Sherwood, Arkansas to begin serving as a Youth Pastor and was ordained as an Elder with the Church of the Nazarene in the summer of 2017. He loves being active, reading, and enjoying the outdoors.
In January of 2018 he flew he began his missionary service by flying to the West Africa Field in Dakar, Senegal. There he has built relationships with the young people, taught Bible study, taught English courses, and lived life with brothers and sisters in Christ. In August he will be moving to Accra, Ghana. There he will be teaching courses for ministry through the Nazarene Theological Institute. With over 100,000 reported Nazarene members in the West Africa Field, there are only 136 Ordained Elders. This is a big challenge and the Nazarene Theological Institute is bringing sound theological teaching to the people of West Africa where they are!
Please be in prayer for West Africa Field as God continues to be faithful in reaching those who don’t know Him with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
