North African Partnership


In 2016, AW and JP left for North Africa with a desire to partner with existing believers in their region and plant a church from which they could evangelize the lost, disciple new believers, and focus on training future indigenous pastors and church planters. In the process, they started a business that serves as a vehicle for this ministry and helps employ local brothers and sisters. This business provides legitimate means to care for their own needs and engage alongside AW and JP in this ministry.

The Lord converted AW in a visibly transformative way when he was a junior in high school. JP was converted in her youth at age 7 under her father’s preaching. They have been married since 2010 and have 4 children. Their children have grown up in Africa since 2013 when AW and JP were first sent out from Heritage Baptist Church in Owensboro.

North Africa is home to primarily Muslim peoples who have very little witness to the gospel since few churches exist in the region. In the country where AW and JP live, which has a total population of around 40,000,000 people, some estimates claim there are 3,000-5,000 professing Christians. In the particular region in which they engage,  40 known believers are scattered across 4 cities. AW and JP began partnering with a small church of 10 members and 2 elders and began another church plant in a neighboring city in early 2019.
