“We are a people glorifying God by reaching people for Christ and furthering the Kingdom of God in Evans and the Nations”
Bradley & Sara Cordell
The Cordell's have been serving with MTW (Mission to The World) in L'viv, Ukraine with a church planting team. L'viv has about 1.5 million people and there is no reformed evangelical church in the city. It is the largest and most influential city in all of Western Ukraine. The goal of their team is to plant a church planting church that will serve as the hub of church planting for the entire western region of Ukraine. Bradley serves as the team's executive administrator.
Doug & Amy Nunziato, US, Native People Groups
The Nunziato’s are transitioning from ministry in Spain to serving the Lord in aviation ministry. Missionaries serving in remote areas rely daily on the skills of a missionary pilot to help them bring the Gospel, physically and spiritually, to the unreached. Flying on the mission field is such a unique (and dangerous) form of flying that it requires unique preparations to be ready to serve in this way. Mission Aviation Training Academy (MATA) serves on the front end of a “budding” missionary pilot’s training, preparing him or her technically and spiritually for this unique and very much needed Kingdom service.
The work at MATA will include: Flight Instructor and Mechanic, mentoring and discipling students, promoting mission aviation at conferences and events, mission trips to Alaska reaching native tribes (Inuits, Athabaskan, etc.) with the Gospel, and summer aviation camps which introduce teens to aviation and give them a vision for missions using mission aviation as a means to reach the nations.
David and Erin Pervis, Greece
David grew up in Georgia, and as a child placed his faith in Christ. He received his B.S. in chemical engineering at Auburn University and later received CELTA certification for English language teaching. While participating in evangelism teams in Eastern Europe, he sensed God’s call to missionary service there. Erin, also from Georgia, came to know the Lord in middle school. She graduated from Duke University with a degree in Middle East studies and later earned a master’s degree in teaching English as a second language. In 1984 she joined Arab World Ministries and worked among Arab Muslims in England, France, and the Middle East before marrying David in 1996. From 1999 to 2012, David and Erin served on the MTW church-planting team in Sofia, Bulgaria, establishing a multifaceted English program as an avenue for evangelism and assisting a Bulgarian church planter. From 2012 to 2017, they served on the MTW church-planting team in Kyiv, Ukraine, teaching ESL, leading evangelistic English clubs for two church plants, and discipling new believers. As of 2018, they are a part of the MTW church-planting team in Athens, Greece, using English instruction as a means for evangelism among Greeks and refugees from the Middle East and Asia.
David and Eowyn Stoddard, Germany
David, son of a PCA church-planter, was raised in Louisiana and Tennessee. Christ captured his heart in high school while he was participating in short-term mission trips, and David has felt called to missions ever since. At King College in Tennessee, he majored in political science and modern foreign languages, earned a master of divinity degree from Westminster Theological Seminary (WTS) in California, and a Th.M. from WTS in Philadelphia. David serves as the international director for Europe, overseeing MTW’s vision, values, and personnel in Europe. David and Eowyn joined MTW’s church-planting movement in eastern Berlin in 2001. Over the past 20 years, Team Berlin has been involved in planting five churches and a campus of Martin Bucer Seminary. Eowyn is the daughter of MTW missionaries who served in France. She came to faith at a young age and sensed a call to missions in her late teens. She majored in German language and literature at Wellesley College and obtained a master’s in biblical studies from Westminster Seminary, where she met David.
They married in December of 1997. Eowyn assists David in his role and supports church-planting through evangelism, teaching, and outreach to refugees.
