LRBC Missionaries

Nearly 40 missionary units, including more than 30 couples and several singles, are directly or indirectly sharing the gospel, discipling new believers, and training new leaders for churches. Around 20 missionary units serve overseas in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Others have ministries based in the United States and serve high school and college students, military families, Jewish people, and Hispanics in both this country and Mexico. Some work in vital support positions in North America, and those who live in the area also serve in various ministries right here at Lake Ridge. Below are bios and other information for many of our missionaries.
